The Chicago Bears have selected defensive back Kyler Gordon out of Washington with their first pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Gordon joins a Bears secondary that struggled last year outside of Jaylon Johnson.

Gordon is a tough-nosed DB that isn’t afraid to come up and make a tackle in the run game or deliver a big hit. He is also better than average with his ball skills and is a very good cover corner.

Take a look at some highlights of Gordon below via Twitter:

Kyler Gordon is a competitor. He plays with a tough edge and is more than willing to compete at the catch point.
His ball skills have been improving over the course of the last few years. #Bears

CB Kyler Gordon to the #Bears
This is a good fit for Matt Eberflus’ defense. Competitive, physical corner with coverage traits + zone eyes. Excellent transition speed to drive on the ball. And the versatility/toughness to play in the slot.

New Chicago Bears CB Kyler Gordon did not allow a touchdown in coverage in his career. He was PFF’s 14th highest graded CB in 2021 intercepting 2 passes and breaking up 9 more. Gave up a 47.3 passer rating when targeted. Stud.

The goal for the Bears is to add a playmaker on their defense and if Gordon can develop into that, they are going to have their starters in the secondary set for years to come.
