Pick No. 218: The Chicago Bears should have drafed Andrew Vorhees

Nothing against Travis Bell, but give me the guy who was projected to go on Day 2 at this point. These seventh-round options are usually dart throws, but Andrew Vorhees would have made more sense to me here. More often than not, these players end up on the practice squad, but Vorhees could easily push to start at one of the guard spots in 2024 if he gets healthy.

The Ravens had the right idea and drafted Vorhees at pick No. 229. Vorhees would not help a team out this season as he tore his ACL at the NFL Combine. That said, I'd be perfectly fine with putting Vorhees on injured reserve and then moving for this season while he learns mentally and recovers physically.

Pick No. 258: The Chicago Bears should have drafted Travis Bell

I am going to give Ryan Poles his guy. He said he absolutely fell in love with Bell when they met. Poles still gets his guy but 40 picks later in the draft. I don't think Bell would have even been drafted if not for the Bears taking him. He is the first-ever player to be drafted out of Kennesaw State. He seems like a hard-working and positive guy. He will clearly fit in well with the HITS principle.
