The Chicago Bears selected four offensive linemen on Day 3 of the 2022 NFL draft, which includes homegrown product Doug Kramer out of Illinois.
Kramer, who was selected in the sixth round, grew up in Hinsdale, IL, a western suburb of Chicago. So when he was drafted by his hometown Bears, it prompted an epic reaction from his family.
While NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein has some concerns about Kramer’s Cody control and core strength, this video of Kramer causally pushing a Dodge Ram by himself seems to indicate that strength isn’t an issue.

Kramer was a five-year starter during his collegiate career, where he made 48 starts at center. Right now, he’s a developmental prospect with the hope that he’ll develop into Chicago’s future at center.
During rookie minicamp this weekend, Kramer has been seeing starting reps at center, where he projects to serve as Lucas Patrick’s backup on the offensive line.
