After trading up to select quarterback Justin Fields on Thursday night, the Bears made another move to get a player to help protect the young QB.

Chicago traded up to No. 39 overall to select Oklahoma State offensive tackle Teven Jenkins.

Jenkins was a first-team All-Big 12 selection in 2020 after starting one game at left tackle and and six games at right tackle. Jenkins was a full-time starter in three of his four years at Oklahoma state, splitting his time between left and right tackle.

The Bears received the 39th and 151st overall selections from the Panthers in exchange for the 52nd, 83rd, and 204th picks.

  1. Lol… Why would you down vote this!? Seriously. I think there’s bears fans that enjoy seeing them suck and are ecstatic when they fail.

  2. The Bears OL lost all their testosterone when Kyle Long left. This kid could the guy to bring it back.

  3. Man I have been railing on pace for years for his horrible drafts, But this year he has actually done pretty good.
    If you have watched this Teven kid in college, this dude is a beast and before a single snap is by far our best lineman.

  4. I wonder how much of a difference there is on the betting lines for the bears now vs the day before the draft 🤔

  5. Everyone has Jenkins slotted in at RT but Germain Ifedi held that spot down pretty well last year and he’s back. Personally I’d love to see him get a shot at unseating Charles Leno on the left side, who is getting old and has not played up to his pay. The Bears still have cap issues so if they can unload Leno and get a better player on a 2nd round rookie salary, why not?
