6. Tyler Scott, WR - Cincinnati (Pick No. 133)

The Chicago Bears did not hesitate to add another receiver despite landing D.J. Moore this offseason. Tyler Scott is a smaller, better version of Velus Jones. He has top-end speed and can stretch the field. His route-running can use some perfecting, but he should push Velus Jones off the roster. Adding Scott and Roschon Johnson in the fourth was great value.

7. Noah Sewell, LB - Oregon (Pick No. 148)

If Noah Sewell was able to declare for the draft in 2022, he'd have likely been a Day 2 pick instead of a Day 3 pick. His 2021 season was much better than his 2022 season. That said, this was clearly a best-player-available approach since the team does not need any help at linebacker. Expect to see Sewell dominate on special teams before pushing for playing time on defense in the next year or two.

8. Terrell Smith, CB - Minnesota (Pick No. 165)

The Chicago Bears look to add more cornerback depth by selecting Terrell Smith out of Minnesota. Smith is very similar athletically to second-round pick Tyrique Stevenson. He uses his size, speed and physicality to his advantage. His hips are a little too tight and could struggle with better route-runners, however his football instincts and speed should allow him to recover often. He makes for a great depth piece in the fifth round.

9. Travis Bell, DT - Kennesaw State (Pick No. 218)

Not much information or film out there on defensive tackle Travis Bell. I'll be calling him Taco Bell whether he likes it or not. He's another 3-technique, hybrid defensive tackle. He has a high motor and Ryan Poles loves his mental makeup. He will be a project for Matt Eberflus to develop.

10. Kendall Williamson, S - Stanford (Pick No. 258)

Only one pick away from being Mr. Irrelevant, the Chicago Bears take Kendall Williamson with their final pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. Williamson is another athletic, lengthy defensive back. Williamson has versatility and experience playing both corner and safety. He makes for a strong developmental prospect out of the seventh round.
