The Chicago Bears have locked up their entire 2021 rookie draft class.

The Bears have signed second-round offensive tackle Teven Jenkins. The news was first reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Chicago traded up to select Jenkins with the 39th overall pick, giving their first-round, franchise quarterback Justin Fields some protection for the long haul.

While many expected Jenkins to replace the departed Bobby Massie at right tackle, GM Ryan Pace wouldn’t rule out Jenkins playing left tackle. Chicago shortly after released veteran left tackle Charles Leno, an indication they have a ton of confidence in Jenkins as a franchise left tackle.
