The Chicago Bears continue to load up on the offensive line, as general manager Ryan Poles has now taken four offensive linemen on Day 3 of the 2022 NFL draft.

The latest is Southern’s Ja’Tyre Carter with the 226th overall selection, who adds depth to what was an area of weakness last season.

Carter was a four-year starter at Southern University with 37 starts at left tackle. He’s 6’3, 311 pounds, with a perfect frame to move inside to guard. He’s a former high school basketball player converted to offensive line at Southern.

He’s strong at the point of attack and has plenty of aggressiveness, but he’s a developmental pick. He might not become a starter, but he provides additional depth at guard behind Cody Whitehair and Dakota Dozier.
