The selections keep rolling in for the Chicago Bears and general manager Ryan Poles.
Chicago began their day by selecting an offensive lineman in Braxton Jones and found themselves another in the sixth round. The Bears selected offensive lineman Zachary Thomas out of San Diego State with the 186th overall pick.
Thomas has experience at both guard and tackle, but likely projects as a guard in the NFL. He started at right tackle for the Aztecs in 2020 and moved to the left side in 2021.
As the Bears continue to bolster their offensive line, here’s how Twitter reacted to the latest pick.
Bears take another athletic OLineman. Zach Thomas from San Diego St. has started at both guard and tackle will most likely play guard here . 4.97 40 at 308

The #Bears add another athletic OL in the former of San Diego State’s Zachary Thomas.
I like this pick a lot in Round 6. A bit raw, but he’s very athletic and plays with a mean streak. Think he can play both guard or tackle in the league.

Ryan Poles clearly has a type: athletic/speedy

Zach Thomas is a tackle who was originally a guard. Some scouts predict he'll go back to guard as a pro. He needs to build his strength but could end up being a pretty good swing tackle for the #chicagobears

Zach Thomas basically needs to be worked from the ground up in pass protection. But he has some of the best run blocking tape in the class. Especially as a zone blocker. That’s a nice dart at a swing Olineman who can play every position along the o line #Bears

It's worth noting the #Bears have Zach Thomas listed as a guard with their pick. This guy can play. Legitimate chance to start in 2022.

Zach Thomas is a straight up mauler.

Zach Thomas is an amazing zone run blocker, needs work in pass pro but another really nice pick

Poles adding athletes at all levels — that’s now two reserve IOL adds.@WCGridiron’s own Josh Sunderbruch advocated for IOL at the tail end of the draft, he’s getting it. I like the direction https://t.co/ZXlFHhObcq
