Pre-Gamin’: The 2022 NFL Draft – Day 3 (11 AM CT): Bears Picks, Needs, Broadcast Info, Draft Thread, More

Chicago Bears

Some of the Bears best and most productive picks in recent years have come on Day 3.

Jordan Howard was a Pro Bowl running back as a rookie. He was a fifth-round pick. Adrian Amos was a fifth-rounder, too. He was a four-year starter in Chicago before taking his talents to play for That Team in Wisconsin. Eddie Jackson was a fourth-round steal who put up an All-Pro campaign in the Bears’ last winning season. Tarik Cohen was a fun gadget player who was an All-Pro return specialist. Like Jackson, Cohen was a fourth-round pick. Trevis Gipson was a Day 3 selection and he is in line to start as a pass-rusher for these Bears.

And then there’s everyone’s favorite Day 3 pick (of recent vintage):

If Ryan Poles can find a Darnell Mooney, Adrian Amos, and an Eddie Jackson today, I think folks will be singing a different tune than they were last night.

Let’s get it!

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.
