NextImg:Bears open 5th round by drafting LB Noah Sewell at No. 148 overall

The Bears continued trying to revamp their defense Saturday by picking Oregon linebacker Noah Sewell in the fifth round of the NFL Draft at No. 148 overall.

In three seasons at Oregon, Sewell had 218 tackles, including 7 1/2 sacks, as well as three forced fumbles and two interceptions. Bears scout Reese Hicks said Sewell’s blitzing ability was part of the draw to pick him.

“He’s ready to go,” said Reese, who thought he’d be in position to play quickly rather than being a developmental prospect.

Sewell, 21, grew up in American Samoa and is the younger brother of Lions Pro Bowl left tackle Penai Sewell.

Here is the Bears current draft class and remaining picks:

Round 1, No. 10 overall: Tennessee OT Darnell Wright
Round 2, No. 53 overall: Florida DT Gervon Dexter
Round 2, No. 56 overall: Miami CB Tyrique Stevenson
