One thing everyone has accepted about Ryan Pace is his secret. The man did his best to avoid revealing details of what he had done. It’s already clear that Ryan Pauls is nothing like him. The Chicago Bears’ new GM has admitted he doesn’t need to reveal specific details, but he’s not shy about being open to the media about the process of building his roster.
That only came to light when he revealed that he had personally seen Justin Fields’ tapes before the 2022 draft. did. Not much has changed since then. Poles appeared on Bears All-Access with Jeff Joniak to talk about where he is now and where he’s headed. In one offhand comment, he even revealed plans for a weekend of scouting for his 2023 draft next year.
It’s refreshing to hear the openness from the GM.
According to Paul’s comments, he and assistant GM Ian Cunningham are likely to be involved in Friday night’s TCU-Colorado game. Chief among them is Horned Frogs wide receiver Quentin Johnston. The 6’4 big kid just last season he had 33 catches for 634 yards and he had 6 TDs. His size combined with deep speed makes him dangerous for defensive backs who have to cover him.
Meanwhile, one Colorado name that Paul may have circled is Tommy Brown. On the transfer from Alabama, he is his 6’7, 330-pound mammoth at his guard. He has plenty of power in the running game and enough length and athleticism to handle himself well in pass protection.The offensive line will be a priority for this GM moving forward. Don’t be surprised if Brown’s name is mentioned months from now.

Ryan Poles may not finish after that game either.
He also mentioned two other stops. That could mean he gets on a plane to watch the Oregon vs. Georgia matchup on Saturday, then 24 hours later he’s ready for the prime-time battle between Florida State and his LSU. may be there for The Bears GM ends up catching his three games in his 72 hours. It’s always been clear that the guy is a grinder but this is pretty impressive the fact he’s doing it right after he got 7 new players from his waiver his wire makes it I will appreciate it even more.
There’s no shortage of top prospects to watch in these games either.
- Jalen Carter (DT, Georgia)
- Cation Boutte (WR, LSU)
- Kelee Ringo (CB, Georgia)
- Noah Sewell (LB, Oregon)
- BJ Ojulari (EDGE, LSU)
- Nolan Smith (EDGE, Georgia)
- Arik Gilbert (TE, Georgia)
Most of the names on the list are likely to be picked in the first round next April. Some of them would fill a huge need for the Bears’ roster, and it makes sense that Ryan Poles would want to target those games. They all feature key talents that can help his roster, especially his young quarterback. He promises to make this franchise a winner once again. It is possible only with constant effort.
