Chicago Bears end up with seven top-150 picks in this 2022 mock draft
To say Chicago Bears fans have gotten a little antsy during this offseason is an understatement.
In his first year, general manager Ryan Poles has seemingly done very little during free agency. He’s also let go of some veteran players.
At this point, some fans are wondering if Poles is truly going to try and build around quarterback Justin Fields during the quarterback’s second year. Or, as it seems, Poles might wait until the 2023 offseason to do most of his damage.
There is, however, plenty of offseason left to go. With many free agents remaining, the Bears will still end up signing a good amount of players to fill in their roster. In addition, the 2022 NFL Draft could end up being a huge weekend for Poles and Chicago.
Ryan Poles and the Chicago Bears could do some serious work in the 2022 NFL Draft
Right now, the Bears have six picks in this year’s draft — thanks to trading Khalil Mack for an extra second-rounder.
Poles has spoken about his philosophy when it comes to the draft, and that he will definitely be looking for ways to acquire more capital. However, do not rule out a big, more unexpected move in order to land the right player if need be.
It is not out of the realm of possibility for Poles to both move up and move down in this draft, depending on how it falls.
In this mock draft, the Bears end up with a whopping seven top-150 prospects, per Pro Football Focus rankings. To start it off, Poles surprises us all and trades up into the first round for a big name.
