WATCH: The moment that Ryan Poles told Darnell Wright they were drafting him


by - Senior Editor -

In the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears selected Tennessee offensive tackle Darnell Wright with the No. 10 overall pick.

While some fans may have been disappointed that the Bears didn't select a defensive player with their first-round pick, the selection of Wright was a smart move that fills a critical need on the offensive line.

The Bears have struggled in recent years to protect their quarterbacks, and Wright has the potential to be a key piece in helping to keep Justin Fields upright and healthy.

The Bears posted the video of Bears general manager Ryan Poles calling Wright to let him know that they were picking him.

"Do you remember what we talked about when we came down there and worked you out?" Poles asked.

"Be one of the best," Wright said.

"One of the best. Ready to put in the work to get to that place?" Poles asked.

"Yes sir," Wright said.

"Well we're going to put your name in here and you're going to be a Bear," Poles said.
