The Chicago Bears have made their second pick of the 2022 NFL Draft and have kept their focus on defense. With the 48th selection of the draft, Chicago selected Penn State safety Jaquan Brisker.

Pairing Brisker with Eddie Jackson gives the Bears their starting duo for the 2022 season, as both of the Bears second round picks have gone towards focusing on rebuilding the secondary.


Here is a breakdown of Brisker’s game via NFL Draft analyst Lance Zierlein:

Athletic safety prospect whose versatility and toughness will endear him to coaches during the evaluation process. Brisker continued to pick up elements of the defensive scheme and his play has steadily transformed from hesitant in 2019 to downright instinctive in 2021. He has the versatility to become a moving chess piece in a variety of coverages and has the size and talent to match up with both “Y” and “F” tight ends. He played with a banged-up shoulder in 2021 so his 2020 tape is a clearer indicator of his run support acumen. Brisker is an ascending talent with the NFL traits to become a long-time starter as a Day 2 draft pick.
