People are on discord. I think we are all waiting on uok to make a thread for Jenkins. People are likely hammered.

Getting Justin Fields and Tevin Jenkins in the same draft is impressive because it’s not something I could have even imagined being a possibility just yesterday.

I don't really know how to act. Confused? Bewildered?

WE DON'T DRAFT LIKE THIS!!!

Pace can poop on a paper plate for the rest of the weekend and it's the best Bears draft in the last 10 years.

The last time I liked a draft class this much was 2011, with Carimi, Paea, Conte, and Enderle. Shows what I know, but this is different. These two guys are fucking aces.

Jenkins is a beast. Jimbo Covert with a bad attitude. I kind of think they're going to try him on the left, knowing he can play the right. Or *should*. And then that will help them figure out what they need to do next year.

Pretty badass results so far. Having a 2nd, 3rd, 5+ and maybe some additions next year is fine. '20 was actually pretty good for Pace with no first rounder.

There have been some really good drafts... but I don't remember being so pleased. These are the kind of offensive picks that can turn an offense from incredible to... highly credible.

Here is what Brett Kollmann has to say about Jenkins.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1jlLUWjwDo&t=137s

The Readers Digest version is, he's a TOP 20 pick, a bad MF'er with flawless technique, and a streak of extreme nastiness.

I like the Jenkins pick.

I do have a few concerns -- he comes up out of his stance high a lot, and that's going to pose problems against outside speed; he's not especially long, which will require better hand placement and fundamentals; and Dane Brugler mentioned on Robert Mays' podcast last night that some off-field "unflattering stuff" came out about Jenkins (he did not elaborate, and I haven't been able to find any specifics, but Dane doesn't typically say something like that if there's nothing there).

The first makes me worry he's a guard, not a tackle, but I think you definitely have to try him outside first. The second is likely addressed by Juan Castillo, who's a good coach, as long as Jenkins is willing to be coached. And the last could be something, but could also be nothing, so I'll reserve judgment on that for the moment.

He's bright, versatile (has starts at LG and both tackles, and snaps at RG), and appears to be dedicated to the game. I'd bet the Bears found Arlington Hambright last year while scouting Jenkins.

Watch Brett Kollmann's analysis of Jenkins. A lot of his coming up high in his stance is to set-up edge rushers for a trap technique. Kollmann does a great job of breaking down that part of his game.

Brandon Thorne had his as OT2 and I like his analysis. He’s a beast and I’m excited to have him on the bears.

This is an amazing draft

Yeah, I was a big fan of the 2020 draft -- was thrilled with Johnson and pleased with Kmet. Vildor was my only head-scratcher, but Gipson and Mooney made up for him in my mind. (Now if Gipson would show something this coming season, LOL...)

Fields and Jenkins in 2021 is basically a pair of first-rounders. It's hard to complain about that.

I did watch it. It's pretty good.

That made me laugh too.

I'll reiterate: I like the Jenkins pick. He has some work to do, but then all of these guys do.

Here's what Dane Brugler had to say about Jenkins, what Ourlads says, and what National Draft Bible says.

I haven’t felt this good since the time we drafted Rex Grossman and Michael Haynes in the first round. So I’m an idiot.

Pace could spend the rest the day getting drunk and throwing darts at random names and still have the best Bears draft since 83. Or maybe ever.

This feeling of “having asked Charlize Theron out and saying yes” could not escape me all day yesterday. I couldn’t sit still, so I headed out to the bar again to eat. All I could talk about was how in love I am with what the Bears did in the draft to grab Justin Fields. Then I look up to the screen and see the Teven Jenkins pick. Holy shit I ended up getting bombed again.

I have a new mancrush: Ryan Pace.
