Chicago Bears draft picks 2021: Round-by-round selections

View Comments

Here is a 2021 NFL draft pick-by-pick breakdown for the Chicago Bears:

Round 1 (No. 11 overall, from Giants) - Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State: Four years after their disastrous draft trade for QB Mitchell Trubisky, whom GM Ryan Pace selected instead of Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson, they take another big swing for Fields by giving the Giants a future first-rounder to move up. This could also be a self-preservation move for Pace and coach Matt Nagy, who seem to be in a fight to keep their jobs beyond this year despite two playoff trips in the past three seasons.  Draft tracker

Round 2 (39, from Panthers) - Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State: Should settle in at right tackle and become another element (along with first-round QB Justin Fields) that helps Chicago's shoddy offense help upholding its side of the deal in the Windy City. Bears fans should enjoy Jenkins' play-to-the-echo-of-the-whistle mentality. Draft tracker
