The Bears make two interesting second round selectionsVincent Pariseon April 30, 2022 at 12:26 am

The Chicago Bears didn’t have a pick in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. They traded it to the New York Giants so that they can move up to select Justin Fields out of Ohio State University. You are nothing if you don’t have a quarterback so this will be a good move if he hits but we will see.

The Giants made that pick in the first round on Thursday and selected Evan Neal out of Alabama. He is going to be a good player but protecting the quarterback is pointless if you don’t have a quarterback. The Bears will fix their offensive line eventually (we hope).

The Bears had to wait for day two to make a selection. They had two picks in the second round because the Los Angeles Chargers gave them one in the Khalil Mack trade. The first one was their own at pick 39.

With that pick, they selected Kyler Gordon out of Washington. He is a cornerback that should really be able to help the Bears with their secondary. That was sort of a sore spot on the defense during the 2021 season for them.

This is a guy who has not allowed a touchdown against him personally over the past two seasons. That is just monster production for him as he looks to take that next step into the NFL. This was a home run pick for Ryan Poles despite it being a position that not many people expected Chicago to look at this early.

When you have a guy available that dominated the PAC-12 the way that he did, you have to go after him. They did and they might look really smart for it by the time he reaches his potential in the NFL.

The Chicago Bears made two picks in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

The second pick of the round was a bit of a surprise. They decided to take Jaquan Brisker. He is a safety out of Penn State. Clearly, the new Chicago Bears regime in charge wants them to get back to being a very good defense. They added two players in the defensive secondary in the 2022 second round.

When it comes to the two biggest needs, wide receiver and offensive line, it is fair to be worried at this point. We can only hope that they address these positions later in the draft but their future on defense certainly looks a bit brighter here. They took two very good defensive backs.
