Bears draft offensive lineman Braxton Jones in fifth round


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears drafted Southern Utah tackle Braxton Jones at No. 18 overall during the 2022 NFL draft on Saturday afternoon.

The Bears actually traded down several times in the round to receive additional draft picks.

Jones made 11 starts at left tackle and was named first-team All-Big Sky last season. He was also named first-team FCS All-American as a senior.

This was certainly an area of need for the Bears so it will good to see them try to fill some depth at that important position.
