The Chicago Bears don't figure to be too busy during the 2022 NFL Draft. Their big move for this year was actually made last year, when they dealt away their 2022 first-round pick to move up and select former Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields. The Bears did not do all that much to put Fields in position to succeed, and he struggled through a trying rookie season that ended with his head coach and the team's general manager each being fired. The new regime has four more years to capitalize on Fields counting for a relatively small amount on their cap sheet for a starting quarterback, and that work will largely begin with this year's draft, because the previous occupants of Halas Hall left them precious little financial wiggle room to work with and thus the Bears were not particularly active in free agency.
