2022 NFL Draft Recap: Chicago Bears

The 2022 NFL Draft has concluded after months of scrutiny about these prospects, potential landing spots, team and scheme fits, and so on. Now we get to start the entire process all over again now that we have team landing spots for these college prospects.

Today, we tackle the Chicago Bears and how they fared in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Chicago's 2022 NFL Draft selections:

  • Round 2 (39): Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington
  • Round 2 (48): Jaquan Brisker, S, Penn St.
  • Round 3 (71): Velus Jones, WR, Tennessee
  • Round 5 (168): Braxton Jones, OT, Southern Utah St.
  • Round 5 (174): Dominique Robinson, EDGE, Miami (OH)
  • Round 6 (186): Zach Thomas, G, San Diego St.
  • Round 6 (203): Trestan Ebner, RB, Baylor
  • Round 6 (207): Doug Kramer, C, Illinois
  • Round 7 (226): Ja'Tyre Carter, G, Southern
  • Round 7 (254): Elijah Hicks, DB, California
  • Round 7 (255): Trenton Gill, P, North Carolina St.


The 2022 Fantasy Impact:

Da Bears...did absolutely nothing to build around Justin Fields for his second season in the league. They added wide receiver Velus Jones in the third round of the draft, but Jones is the third option behind Darnell Mooney and Byron Pringle...not to mention Cole Kmet is still in the mix. Jones is fast, running a 4.31 at the combine, but he's more of an athlete than a true NFL player. Look for him to have little, if any, fantasy impact in 2022.
