You are quoting the Chris Mortensen article. Points for catching that. But it is wrong.
I don't know if the rules changed since then (did you notice the date is 2003?) or if he simply wasn't aware of the lottery slotting when he wrote it.
The weighted lottery is how order is determined.
Plenty of other sources:
Or the actual draft history from 2010
NFL Draft 2010
Bears picked #11 in the April draft in the 7th round
And the supplemental draft from 2010
NFL Supplemental draft 2010
Bears picked #12 in the supplemental in the 7th round
