After going offensive line in the first, it appears they went to the other line and selected Florida defensive tackle Gervon Dexter.
Matt Eberflus and Ryan Poles finally got their 3-technique defensive tackle.
Here’s what Twitter had to say.
The Bears have their three-technique defensive tackle: Gervon Dexter Sr., Florida.— Adam Jahns (@adamjahns) April 29, 2023
Bears take an athletic DT. Makes sense given the need to build along the line. Centers still out there… https://t.co/XJ1RwnQ3fJ— Jeff Berckes (@gridironborn) April 29, 2023
Seems that some were a little lukewarm on the pick...
But then again, some of our staff are Gator fans.
#Bears take Florida DT Gervon Dexter at No. 53. Nice upgrade for the defensive line.— Jacob Infante (@jacobinfante24) April 29, 2023
Really wanted Adebawore or JMS, but Dexter’s far from a bad pick here. Explosive DL who upgrades a massive need up the middle.
Gervon Dexter!! Love the pick.— Max Markham (@MaxMarkhamNFL) April 29, 2023
He can play 3T and 1T, super versatile is almost perfect from a traits perspective, just a little raw. https://t.co/glkYhgg6T4
Gervon Dexter is powerful young man that can collapse the pocket and can play off blocks. I don’t he’s played his best football yet. I like the pick. #Bears— Jarrett Payton (@paytonsun) April 29, 2023
And now the Bears have traded up so I have another pick to write up. So this is one is short.
