The first draft class in the NFL, run by Bears general manager Ryan Poles, could be effective from day one. There are a few selected newcomers who are ready to get to work. But which newcomer is poised to make the biggest impact?

When discussing this rookie class, you should start with second-round cornerback Kyler Gordon and safety Jakuan Brisker who promoted him immediately. Gordon and Brisker are filling huge gaps in their positions and both are expected to start right away as rookies. Both Gordon and Brisker made an impression during the offseason where they had turnaround cars.

One of the Bears’ biggest needs this offseason was a wide receiver, which they satisfied by drafting Velus Jones Jr. in the third round of the draft. It’s easy to see why Chicago is so excited about Jones’ potential, where his speed and ability to run after catches make him poised to be a playmaker for quarterback Justin Fields. Given that the Bears have an unproven host corporation behind Darnell Mooney, Jones has a chance to see many reps as a rookie.

Perhaps one of the most surprising newcomers is round five Braxton Jones, who racked up starting reps with a left tackle in the final week of organized team events and mandatory mini-camp. Jones clearly impressed the coaching staff by earning this starting chance and he became a contender for the starting left tackle role.

Some other notable rookies include player Trenton Gill, who turned out to be the top pick after Ryan Winslow was released, and fifth-round guard Dominic Robinson, who has a chance of getting some valuable reps after the likes of Robert Quinn, Travis Gipson and Al-Qadeen Muhammad.

Host Ryan O’Leary (@RyanO_Leary) and I (@AlyssaBarbieri) discuss the newcomers we expect to make a significant impact in 2022. The talk about newcomers starts around the 16:36 mark of the episode.
