The second round of the 2022 NFL draft saw a pair of Penn State defensive stars hear their names called as official draft picks. Safety Jaquan Brisker was a second-round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in a move to help give an immediate boost to the pass defense. And according to Brisker, the Bears got quite a bargain by drafting the former Nittany Lion standout.

“They just got the steal of the draft,” Brisker said when reacting to his big draft news on Twitter the next day. “So blessed and thankful to be here, Bears nation you won’t be disappointed.”

Brisker was the third Penn State player to be selected in the 2022 NFL draft. Wide receiver Jahan Dotson was a first-round pick of the Washington Commanders, and defensive end Arnold Ebiketie was selected by the Atlanta Falcons early in the second round.

Penn State linebacker Brandon Smith went in the third round to the Carolina Panthers, and punter Jordan Stout followed in the third round to the Baltimore Ravens.
