Grading Ryan Poles’ first NFL Draft as Chicago Bears GM

The Chicago Bears began the 2022 NFL Draft with just six picks and holes to fill on both sides of the ball. When the seventh round came to a close, General Manager Ryan Poles ended his first draft with an astonishing 11 selections. He nearly doubled his pick count with several savvy trades during the middle portion of day three.

The Bears didn’t have a first-round pick, so Chicago’s 2022 draft haul is missing its headliner despite what Poles managed to accomplish this weekend. Then again, you could count quarterback Justin Fields as a part of the draft class since the Bears used this year’s first-rounder in last year’s draft to move up to get him. He’s the headliner.
