Regardless of whether or not you had confidence going into the 2022 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears ended up coming out with a haul of picks, and that was something fans had desired out of first-year general manager Ryan Poles.

Entering the draft with only six picks in total, the Bears wound up trading back several times and came away with 11 selections overall.

Although Day 2 did not bring fans exactly what they wanted, the Bears finished the draft big and strong, drafting four offensive linemen on Day 3. Poles made it clear, he wanted competition up front in order to protect Justin Fields.

But, how about those Day 2 picks? They weren’t what everybody expected, but Poles got some serious playmakers on both sides of the ball.

The Chicago Bears selected Kyler Gordon, Jaquan Brisker and Velus Jones Jr. on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Starting out with a pair of defensive picks, Poles went after the best players available. He did say that he didn’t expect the draft to fall the way it did, and that selecting two defensive players wasn’t the plan going in.

But, Gordon’s value at no. 39 and Brisker’s value at no. 48 were each too good to pass up.

Now, the Bears have a legitimate starting secondary after it was one of their clear weaknesses in 2021.

As for Jones, he ended up being their only wide receiver selected. However, his combination of speed and elusiveness made him far too attractive to pass up for Poles.

So, we know the names. But, just how good can these top three picks be for Chicago? If they’re anything like their pro comparisons, the Bears came away with three tremendous selections. Let’s take a look at some highly favorable comparisons for Gordon, Brisker and Jones.
