3rd Round - Jaylen Wright, RB - Tennessee
Telling me that the Chicago Bears are good at running the ball without including Justin Fields is silly. "The Bears could draft Caleb Williams because they have a good run game" is bull crap. The Chicago Bears running game is awful without Justin Fields. I wanted Herbert to become the man, but he is just a guy. Maybe if the Bears move Velus Jones to running back, they might have something. Johnson is okay, but let's be real. None of these backs are young versions of David Montgomery, Jordan Howard, or Tarik Cohen. Those were good Bear running backs.
Jaylen Wright from Tennessee might be the change of pace needed for Johnson and Herbert next season. Wright can make people miss in a phone booth and hit the corners faster than anybody on the Bears roster. After the NFL Combine sprint, he will probably be drafted before the #75th overall selection, but for now, he was available and is a clear upgrade to the running back room.
I like other running backs, but this would be a great fit for the outside zone scheme. Poles can spend less time looking at this kid or anyone from Tennessee. He knows that entire roster inside out from visiting there so much. Every GM has their favorite schools. The University of Tennessee might be the one for Ryan Poles.
