The Chicago Bears have been more active than most expected, making a flurry of roster moves, courtesy of first-year general manager Ryan Poles. Heading into the 2022 offseason, the Bears have a number of needs but just five picks in the 2022 NFL Draft. In an effort to acquire additional picks, Poles shipped off star pass rusher Khalil Mack for a 2022 second-round pick and 2023 sixth-round pick. For those keeping score at home, the Bears are currently slated to have a total of six draft picks in April. Two second-round picks,39th and 48th overall, 71st overall, 147th and 149th overall, and 184th overall. After the second round, that’s one pick in the third round, two picks in the fifth round, and one pick in the sixth round. The extra pick makes a difference for the Bears. Chicago will have the opportunity to address key positions such as offensive line and wide receiver, finding long-term building blocks that will be crucial to building around second-year quarterback Justin Fields. The remainder of the draft can be used to select low-risk, high-reward type of players.
