2022 NFL Draft: Early 2-round mock draft : The Bears don’t have a first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, which is why we’re expanding to two rounds in an early mock draft preview!
Draft season runs all year long, baby. Even though the 2021 NFL Draft is only two months in the rearview mirror, the summer is a perfect opportunity to establish the top names in college football and find potential breakout candidates to keep an eye on in the upcoming season. The Bears don’t have a first-round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft after using it to trade up for Justin Fields, but they do find themselves with a handful of potential needs that they could address on Day 2 or later. For the sake of including them in this exercise, I decided to expand my first mock draft of the 2022 draft cycle into two rounds.
