Darnell Wright anchored the right side of the Chicago Bears offensive line and paid immediate dividends as a strong run blocker. Wright was preceded as an All-Rookie selection by left tackle Braxton Jones who was named to the 2022 PFWA All-rookie team.
With Wright and Jones anchoring the Chicago Bears offensive line in 2023 it gives the Bears flexibility in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft to bolster their skill position players. Continued development from Jones and Wright could see the Bears bolster their passing game by adding a QB and a wide receiver.
Jones and Wright are the first two players to earn All-Rookie honors for the Chicago Bears since 2018 when Roquan Smith was named to the team.
The most recent best showing by Chicago Bears rookies on the PFWA NFL All-Rookie team came in 2016 when Cody Whitehair, Jordan Howard and Leonard Floyd were named to the PFWA NFL All-Rookie team.
