The Chicago Bears did not have a pick in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. They traded it to the New York Giants on draft day in 2021 so that they can move up and select Justin Fields out of Ohio State University.

That pick became the seventh overall pick and the Giants took Evan Neal out of the University of Alabama. It is a great pick of a great player but he would be useless to the Bears without a quarterback for him to protect.

As a result, the Bears went into day two waiting to make a pick. They started the night with two second-round picks and one third-round pick. The extra second-round pick came from the Los Angeles Chargers in the Khalil Mack trade.

With the 39th overall pick, the Chicago Bears selected Kyler Gordon out of Washington. He is a cornerback and was one of the best available players on the board. He isn’t a wide receiver or an offensive lineman which is what everyone wanted but he is a great player.

Ryan Poles surprised everyone, even more, when he took another defensive back with their second pick of the round. This time it was a safety in Jaquan Brisker out of Penn State. Both of these guys are outstanding players.

In the third round, the Bears picked Velus Jones Jr. with the 71st overall pick. He is a wide receiver that comes from the University of Tennessee. It was finally a pick of a position that the Bears desperately need. Now, it might be time for them to do more of that.

The Chicago Bears are going into day three with plenty of good options.

The Bears don’t have a pick in the fourth round so they are going to be waiting a while to make another selection. These are the players that might be available to them by the time they are on the clock again in the fourth round:
