New Footage Shows Bears GM Ryan Poles Stunned After Falcons Selected Michael Penix Jr. During 2024 Draft

The Bears had the 2024 NFL Draft shake out exactly how they wanted to.

After selecting quarterback Caleb Wiliams firs overall, the Bears were slated to pick ninth overall, as well. The hope for the Bears was that one of the top three wide receivers would be there and they got their guy in Rome Odunze.

The process in getting Odzune was nerve-wracking. There were multiple teams that needed a wide receiver and two of them were elected ahead of the Bears with the Cardinals taking Marvin Harrison Jr. and the Giants taking Malik Nabers.

When they got to pick eight and the Atlanta Falcons, the Bears were getting more confident that Odunze would fall to them and their reaction to the Falcons picking Michael Penix Jr. resembles what a lot of us had when it happened.


Poles reaction was priceless.
