ESPN analyst has six of Bears picks in top 100 best selections

by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears had a strong showing in the recently concluded 2023 NFL Draft.

In a recent article, ESPN Draft Analyst Matt Miller released his rankings of the Top 100 picks, had the Bears included with six picks.

The Bears made the cut with selections Darnell Wright, Tyler Scott, Terell Smith, Roschon Johnson, Gervon Dexter Sr., and Tyrique Stevenson.

Among these, Wright was the highest-ranked, coming in at number 16.

The Bears drafted Wright as the 10th overall pick in the first round, hoping he will help solidify their offensive line.

Miller was also impressed with the Bears' fourth-round pick, wide receiver Tyler Scott, ranking him 27th overall.

"The selection of Scott at No. 133 was one of the best value picks when graded against my pre-draft rankings, where I had him No. 57 overall," Miller wrote. "Scott's speed and vertical ability will work well in a wide receiver room that offers diverse skill sets, and his ability as a return man will also boost the Chicago special teams unit."

Another notable pick that made the list is running back Roschon Johnson, whom Miller ranked 46th overall.

"A do-it-all running back with awesome special teams ability and leadership skills, Johnson could be this year's Dameon Pierce as a third-day back who ends up a lead ball carrier.," Miller wrote. "The Bears have D'Onta Foreman and Khalil Herbert, but a team source told me after the draft that the former Texas backup has the upside to end up Chicago's featured back."

While draft picks do not guarantee success, the Bears can take pride in their strong showing and hope their selections can help them achieve their goals for the upcoming season.
