Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles just added depth to the offensive line with tackle Braxton Jones with their earlier fifth-round pick. Now he adds to the defensive line.
The Bears selected edge rusher Dominique Robinson out of Miami (Ohio) with the 174th overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft.
Robinson adds depth to the Bears edge rushers, joining a position group led by (for the time being) Robert Quinn, Al-Quadin Muhammad, and Trevis Gipson. He’s seen as a steal and is someone that might be more of a developmental pick than a Day 1 contributor.
With Robinson now in the fold on the defensive line, here’s how fans are viewing the pick.
Dominique Robinson is a steal at #174. Didn't even realize he was still on the board.

Bears fans are going to love Dominique Robinson. I think he’s going to turn out to be one of the steals of this draft

i mean with so many picks, not a big deal, but still. Why? https://t.co/cZLhYQ6oie

I had a 3rd round grade on Dominque Robinson. Insanely explosive needs. Has some moves but could add some counters. Pretty good at setting the edge but needs to get stronger. Don’t think he is the bendiest dude but can be a decent situational rusher

Fun pick. Former WR who just recently transitioned to a pass rusher at Miami Ohio. Crazy athletic traits with a high motor. Another developmental pick. https://t.co/ORroqLMcbd

Seems like a lot of the draft guys are high on Robinson. One of the best athletes (like we have seen with every Poles pick). Good traits

From @dpbrugler on Bears DE Dominique Robinson (who he had with a third-round grade and ranked 78th overall): "Robinson needs to improve vs. the run and develop his countermeasures, but he has exciting pass rush potential thanks to his athletic traits.”

Robinson have a another very athletic guy. One of the best edge players in the MAC, very explosive …. Lot of upside

#Bears GM Ryan Poles clearly has a “type”. Freak athletes.

My guy Dominique Robinson FINALLY goes off the board. Think the Bears got a steal here.

Dominique Robinson is an upside pick. He didn't start a game at Miami on defense but impressed scouts with his explosiveness rushing off the edge and with this length.

#Bears just took a major draft crush of mine in, Dominique Robinson. So happy to have him here in the Windy City. I'll also be doing breakdowns of some of the #NFLDraft class for the Bears here on my page. Be on the lookout in the coming days.

Dominque Robinson is a really interesting choice. Confuses me even more as to why we kept Robert Quinn.
I like Robinson he is a former WR recently transitioned to edge. Sky is the limit for him but he is a project.

Dominque Robinson. He's very new to EDGE but has athletic upside. Bears might've took him before the Lions
I really like the Bears pick of Dominque Robinson. The Edge of future post Quinn.
