Jordan Lynch wasn't one of the 255 players to hear his name called during this past weekend's NFL Draft.

But that doesn't mean he's any less excited to get his NFL career started.

The undrafted free agent who signed with the Bears shortly after the conclusion of Saturday's draft spoke with Comcast SportsNet about what he's looking to accomplish in the Windy City.

Here's some of what he had to say. You can watch his entire interview in the video above:

How your running ability at NIU will help you in the pros

I feel like I have good vision. That's one of the strengths of my game. So running and carrying the ball 20-25 times in college defintiely helped me for this situation.

What excites you most about getting an opportunity with the Bears

If you were to tell me when I was little that you'll have an opportunity one day to play with the Bears -- whether you're drafted or not -- I would have said heck yeah with it. So not getting drafted, that's just a goal early on, but now that you've got a chance to be on the team, I'm just going to run with my shot.

How your versatility will play a role in what you do

I can do a lot of different things on the football field. And the Bears gave me a shot, and I want to help them out any way possible and I'll do whatever it takes. I'm excited about the position change.
