With the sixth overall pick in the draft, Poles and the Bears go right to the trenches by adding Texas Tech pass rusher Tyree Wilson, arguably the second-best pass rusher in this draft. After trading Khalil Mack and Robert Quinn over the past nine months, the Bears finally get to revamping their line.

Wilson is a 6-foot-6 physical specimen who has played multiple positions throughout college, and can be used in a variety of ways in the NFL when needed. But, for the most part, he’ll fit best at defensive end.

He isn’t the fastest, but Wilson uses his raw strength to bully opposing linemen. He’s fast enough, we’ll just leave it at that. But overall, he is so physically dominant that he doesn’t need to qualify under the umbrella of a “speed rusher.” This is a player that can rush from the outside, sure, but also does some of his best work inside due to his strength. The Bears get a potential game-wrecker, here, at no. 6 overall.

Last season, Wilson finished with 10 tackles for a loss, nine quarterback hits and seven sacks for the Red Raiders. He’ll step in and immediately start on this line, taking some pressure off of guys like Trevis Gipson and Dominique Robinson.
