The Chicago Bears took their third offensive lineman of the draft at the 207th overall pick, selecting homegrown talent Doug Kramer, a center from Illinois.
A second-team all conference selection in 2021, Kramer brings five collegiate seasons of starting on the Illini’s offensive line.
Here is a breakdown of Kramer’s game via NFL Draft analyst Lance Zierlein:
A five-year starter, Kramer is a zone-scheme center who moves fairly well but lacks the body control and core strength to win battles against NFL interior linemen.
- Five seasons of starting experience.
- Makes all the calls up front.
- Hustle and tenacity in getting to reach-block angles.
- Keeps running feet through contact.
- Good recognition of pre-snap pressure points.
- Slide quickness to redirect to back-side blitz.
