With under three weeks before the 2022 NFL Draft, the mocks and analysis are heating up. For the Chicago Bears, it’s been all about a couple of positions, in particular.

Under Ryan Poles, the Bears are without a doubt in the midst of a rebuild and have several positions of need right now. But, much of the talk has been about wide receiver and offensive line — arguably the Bears’ top two needs at the moment.

With Darnell Mooney, Byron Pringle, Dazz Newsome and Equanimeous St. Brown under contract, the Bears are thin at wide receiver. They still need at least one true playmaker at the position.

Up front, the Bears have starters locked in with Teven Jenkins, Cody Whitehair and Lucas Patrick. Still, they might only need one starter if Larry Borom takes a step and proves he could start.

Other than wide receiver and offensive line, the Chicago Bears have some underrated and overlooked draft needs.

Everybody knows the Bears need a wide receiver and offensive lineman — at least one of each. Even cornerback is an obvious need that’s talked about frequently.

But, what about the other positions? Chicago lost a bunch of starters this offseason whether it be via free agency or trade, and they all came at a multitude of positions.

The Bears aren’t going to be very competitive in 2022, but at this point it’s about showing progress. Not only Justin Fields, but every other position; the Bears need to show improvement before going all-in on the 2023 offseason..

So, other than the obvious needs, here are a few other underrated draft needs for the Bears in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft.
