Bears select offensive tackle Braxton Jones from Southern Utah in fifth round


CHICAGO (CBS) – The Bears select offensive tackle, Braxton Jones, from Southern Utah with the 168th overall pick in the 5th round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Bears traded three times in the fifth round to acquire additional draft picks — selecting the 23-year-old tackle from Southern Utah.

Jones has started each of the past three seasons in Southern Utah with almost every start at left tackle. A two-time All-Big Sky tackle on the first team, Jones has long arms and likely projects as a deep offensive line piece at the NFL level.
