With the No. 56 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears selected Miami (FL) cornerback Tyrique Stevenson.

The Bears traded up to select Stevenson, who had 2 interceptions and 7 pass deflections in 2022. He started his collegiate career at Georgia, but it was at Miami where he really came into his own. He was a two-year full-time starter with the Hurricanes and earned third-team All-ACC recognition in his last season in college.

Chicago acquired him as the last piece of their starting secondary for the 2023 season. He, Jaylon Johnson and Kyler Gordon form a talented cornerback group with Jaquan Brisker and Eddie Jackson on the back end at safety.

Right after the pick was made, I took to Twitter for my annual Bears draft pick analysis threads. This time, I broke down Stevenson’s strengths and what makes him a player worth being excited about with one of Chicago’s second-round selections.
