Chicago Bears 2022 NFL Draft Roundup: Trades, Picks, and Player Profiles

Get to know the Bears draft class of 2022 — all 11 of them.

Chicago Bears

With the 2022 NFL Draft concluded on Saturday evening, Ryan Poles officially completed his first draft as the general manager of the Chicago Bears. The Bears entered the draft with only six picks in hand. However, on Day 3, the rookie GM was wheelin’ and dealin’. He managed to turn three picks on the final day into eight selections. In total, Bears ended up with 11 picks overall. That volume was a far cry from the previous regime’s draft approach, as Ryan Pace frequently traded up and lost later-round picks.
