Get to know the newest member of the Bears’ front-seven through this lightning-quick scouting report.

As is tradition with Ryan Pace as general manager, the Bears traded up to get their guy, trading a 2021 fourth-round pick to move up to select Tulsa edge rusher Trevis Gipson with the No. 155 overall pick.

The 6-foot-3, 261-pound Gipson started for two seasons at Tulsa and is coming off of a 2019 campaign in which he tallied 8 sacks and 15 tackles for a loss. A lengthy, athletic and productive force off the edge, he fills a major need as depth behind Khalil Mack and Robert Quinn, players under whom he can develop and improve his technique a bit.

To give you all an idea of what to expect from Gipson and how his skill set translates to the Bears’ defense, check out my thread on Twitter detailing the new Monster of the Midway.
