Chicago Bears' linebacker Roquan Smith likes what he sees from one of his rookie teammates. When asked about defensive back Jaquan Brisker, Smith responded with praise for the 23-year-old out of Penn State.
Brisker enjoyed a successful collegiate career at Penn State. He appeared in 34 total games, 21 of which were starts. Brisker recorded 153 tackles, five interceptions, a fumble recovery, and 14 pass breakups.
The Bears selected Brisker 48th overall in the 2022 NFL Draft. He's a versatile back with a knack for being in the right spot at the right time. Brisker has a great deal of hype surrounding him entering the 2022 NFL season.
Drawing praise from a player of Roquan Smith's stature has to be encouraging for the rookie. The Chicago Bears named Jaquan Brisker a starter in the defensive backfield alongside All-Pro Eddie Jackson. The fact that he's already playing like a veteran and not a rookie surely provides the Bears' defense confidence in his immediate and long-term future.
