The Chicago Bears have selected safety Elijah Hicks with pick No. 254 in the seventh round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Hicks, a University of California product, stands at 5-foot-11 and weighs 200 lbs. The 254th pick was the first of two seventh-round selections acquired from the Chargers earlier in the day.

Over his five years at Cal, Elijah Hicks played in 49 games. He logged 211 total tackles, 14.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, five interceptions, and one touchdown.

This addition provides the Chicago Bears with some depth on the back end of the defense. Hicks should be able to fit in nicely within Matt Eberflus’ system.
