8. Roquan Smith, LB, Georgia (Chicago Bears)
General Manager Ryan Pace has had a rather spotty history in Chicago when it comes to draft picks, but few people can fault him for adding a blue chip inside linebacker like Roquan Smith, especially when you consider the storied history of the position for the Bears.
At the end of his rookie season, Smith finished with 122 tackles, five sacks, five passes defended, and one interception, which led to him being selected to the PFWA All-Rookie team. Throughout the 2019 season, he’s led the Bears in tackles.
