Round 7, Pick No. 196

196. player. 812. Pick Analysis. CB. Ohio State. TyrekeJohnson. Scouting Report

After being stuck behind two-first round cornerbacks at Ohio State last season, Tyreke Johnson finally got his chance to shine this season. He doesn’t have much experience, but he has shown that he has some traits to get excited about at the cornerback position.


Has the ideal size to be an outside cornerback at the NFL level. Very good athlete with great body control for someone of his size. Extremely versatile athlete. Hard to gauge him since limited tape on him.


Very little experience. Truly a shot-in-the-dark prospect. Too many questions surrounding him to consider him any higher than a fifth-round pick. May not even enter the 2021 NFL Draft.

Team Fit:

The Bears currently have a major depth issue at cornerback due to injuries, but that may not be an issue next season. Jaylon Johnson has lingering shoulder issues though and after him, there is a lot of uncertainty with rookie Kindle Vildor and Tre Roberson who hasn’t played an NFL snap due to injury.

dark. Next. Chicago Bears must handle their own business in Week 17

Final Thoughts:

Doubling down at offensive tackle early may seem silly, but that move will save the Bears a lot of money next season to bring back players like Allen Robinson and Mitch Trubisky. I feel like I addressed the major issues of the team outside of maybe safety, so overall, I’d be very happy with this draft. If you’d like to read my other drafts, check them out below.
