The dust has cleared, and now it’s time to watch the Chicago Bears first preseason game through the NFL All-22 angles. This time around I focused on Bears rookie right tackle, Darnell Wright. After reviewing the tape, it confirmed what I initially noticed while watching the game on the TV broadcast. Darnell Wright is going to be so good in this league.
Darnell Wright Is A Monster
In the play coming up, pay attention to how fast Darnell Wright starts running. It’s honestly surprising because a big guy who’s 6 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 335 pounds shouldn’t be able to move that quickly. His impressive jump off the ball lets him take not just one, but two defenders out of the play.
Last season, the Bears had the best running game in the NFL. I believe the Bears can continue being one of the top 5 teams in rushing in 2023. I want to point out a specific play where Darnell Wright did a great job in pass protection – he was essentially a wall. While I mainly focused on Fields impressive elusiveness here, I’m also just really excited about what Wright showcased here.

I’m curious if you noticed whether Khalil Herbert actually made contact with the player rushing (Number 24). I’ve watched the tape closely, and honestly, I can’t say for sure that he did. What I do know is that Herbert at the very least managed to give Fields some extra time by faking the block. Anyway, Darnell Wright had an excellent preseason debut. He contributed to several important plays and didn’t let any defenders even come close to pressuring the quarterback. It’s a fantastic game to build upon for him.
