We are entering the thick of the most exciting portion of the NFL offseason, and many Chicago Bears fans just witnessed a whole lot of tempting prospects while watching the 2022 NFL Combine.

While we all get revved up for the start of free agency next week, the 2022 NFL Draft is also on our minds.

For the Bears, free agency should be pretty telling as to how the Bears plan to strategize their five picks in the draft. With limited capital, it’s going to be interesting to watch how general manager Ryan Poles navigates through the next month or so.

The Combine provided football fans with some dazzling performances this year, making it even tougher knowing the Bears have only five picks.

Ryan Poles could find himself in position to make a trade or two in order to land some key draft targets for the Chicago Bears.

This draft class showed, more than anything, that they are faster than any class we’ve seen in recent memory.

The speed was on full display over the course of this year’s Combine, and at every level. Head coach Matt Eberflus has made it crystal clear he wants to target fast guys who play with an edge, and there’s no shortage of those types in this class.

Depending on how free agency shakes out for the Bears, the following mock draft could end up paying huge dividends for Poles and company. At the moment, the Bears don’t own a first-round pick. However, that changes when an opportunity presents itself late on Day 1.
