Pre-Gamin’: The 2022 NFL Draft – Day 2 (6:00 CT): Bears Picks, Needs, Broadcast Info, Draft Thread, More

Chicago Bears

Before the NFL Draft kicked off festivities on Thursday, we rounded up a slew of mock drafts that were done in April.

We tracked April mock drafts by Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay (ESPN), Luke Easterling (DraftWire), Kevin Fishbain and Adam Jahns (The Athletic), Anthony Treash (PFF), Brad Biggs (Tribune), Josh Edwards, Chris Trapasso, and Ryan Wilson (CBS Sports), Vinny Ayer (Sporting News), Chad Reuter (NFL Media), James Frogoza (Pro Football Network), and Thor Nystrom (NBC Sports Edge).

Here’s who came up the most in these mocks:

Tyler Smith, OT, Tulsa (5 times)
Kyler Gordon, CB, Washington (4)
Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn (4)
George Pickens, WR, Georgia (3)
Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida (3)
Christian Watson, WR, North Dakota State (3)
Logan Hall, DL, Houston (2)
John Metchie III, WR, Alabama (2)
Abraham Lucas, OT, Washington State (2)
Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State (2)
Bernhard Raimann, OT, Central Michigan (2)
Kenyon Green, OG, Texas A&M (2)
DeMarvin Leal, DT, Texas A&M (2)

One vote getters: WR Jalen Tolbert (Penn State), WR Treylon Burks (Arkansas), EDGE Arnold Ebiketie (Penn State), DT Perrion Winfrey (Oklahoma), CB Josh Jobe (Alabama), CB/S Jalen Pitre (Baylor), WR David Bell (Purdue), OT Daniel Faalele (Minnesota), WR Skyy Moore (Western Michigan).

As you can see, there are players (Smith, Elam, Dotson, Green) who are already off the board. So, in case you were one of those thinking that the first round didn’t go as poorly because “no one was expecting anyone of those guys to fall into Round 2” … that’s not so much the case. Anyway, good for them to hear their names in the first round. Even if it came at the expense of the Bears not getting them.

The Bears get their chance to call some names for themselves tonight.

It’s Ryan Poles’ time to shine…

Draft Thread

Your draft thread is down in the comments, so let’s have some good, clean (safe-for-work) fun. It’s good to be back talking about picking in the first round. Hopefully, these pick are ones we talk about for many days, months, and years to come. Preferably for all the right reasons.
