2023 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #9

Return to Mock Draft

Jalen Carter



The Bears slip down another spot and pick up a 2024 RD4 pick from the Eagles, to select OT Darnell Wright. Wright is a pure right tackle and should slide right in to start week 1. Peter Skoronski was still on the board, so Wright is a surprising pick ahead of the Northwestern star. Wright, at 333 lbs, has athletic limitations, but he makes up for that with strength and power.

The Tennessee Tackle will have to work on his technique to cement a spot on a Bears' line that will need more help in later rounds. A pick at a position of need, but definitely a reach.
