One of the biggest 2023 NFL draft risers has been Northwestern defensive lineman Adetomiwa Adebawore. A perfect fit for the Chicago Bears’ three-tech, Adebawore had an impressive Senior Bowl performance. That, combined with his showcase of rare athleticism at the 2023 NFL Combine, now has him in the first-round conversation.
The Bears are doing their due diligence on Adebawore. They hosted him on a Top 30 visit, according to The Draft Network’s Ryan Fowler.
It’s highly unlikely the Chicago Bears will use the No. 9 pick on Adebawore. As great as his pre-draft process has been, he isn’t a top-10 prospect. But if he’s on the board at the start of Day 2, he could be a player GM Ryan Poles tries trading up for.
