With their first pick in the third round, the Bears stay in the trenches, but go for the defensive side of the ball this time. Texas' T'Vondre Sweat has no relation to Montez, but between the two of them, this Bears defensive line could be even better in 2024.
Sweat is a massive dude, standing 6-foot-4 and 362 pounds. He is one of the better run-stoppers in this class, which will allow him to fit right in with last year's top run defense in Chicago. This is a player opposing offenses would be silly not to double team, but with the way this line is shaping up, it'll be like a constant game of Russian Roulette.
For the third-straight pick, the Bears stay up front but go back to offense, selecting Yale offensive tackle Kiran Amegadjie. Offensive tackle might be an issue, depending on how the Bears view Braxton Jones going into his third season.
Jones could stand to use some competition, at the very least, which is why Amegadjie makes sense here. Although he comes from a smaller program, Amegadjie has everything you want in terms of frame and raw ability. He's 6-foot-5 with shocking length to boot. Amegadjie has high-level athleticism to get out in space but also has shown that he's got a strong enough base to hold his own.
This has the makings of a phenomenal training camp battle, with the third rounder potentially taking over the starting gig.
