4. Was Noah Sewell a luxury pick for the Chicago Bears?

With Noah Sewell, you could start to make the case that the Chicago Bears tripled down on linebackers. Okay, it is just a fifth-round pick. Still, fans thought Jack Sanborn could start, and now he has to compete with a fifth-round pick just to see the field every once and a while.

Either the Chicago Bears do not view Sanborn as anything close to as well as fans do, or they spent too much at this spot. Players that went after Sewell include Olu Oluwatimi, Jordan McFadden, Dontayvion Wicks, Will Mallory, and Nick Hampton.

In Wicks and Mallory they could have added more pass catchers and the team need a third tight end. Hampton would give edge depth, and both Oluwatimi and McFadden were options at center. Fans who wanted a center earlier saw the Chicago Bears pass on a potential need for a player who will just be competing with Jack Sanborn for the SAM role, which is a minor role on defense.

Considering these are day three picks, this is probably not going to make or break anything, but it is interesting to see. It makes you realize that they clearly had Sewell as the highest-graded player, so now time will tell to see how correct the grades are.
