The Chicago Bears’ 2022 rookie class includes 11 draft picks and three players projected to start or play a significant role as soon as Week 1.
Second-round picks cornerback Kyler Gordon and safety Jaquan Brisker will join Jaylon Johnson and Eddie Jackson as starters in the secondary, while third-round pick receiver Velus Jones Jr. is among the most gifted skill players on offense. All three will be on the field a lot this fall.
The cluster of day-three picks (including four offensive linemen) should have some players emerge with reps in 2022. But which rookie will make the biggest impact this year?
