As the Bears transition to a 4-3 defense, there was an importance of landing the right 3-technique to occupy the interior of the defensive line. The fact that Chicago went all-in on Ogunjobi says a lot about their feelings that he’s the answer at the 3-tech position. And he certainly fits the bill for what Eberflus is looking for on defense.

“You’ve got to do a couple of things as a three-technique,” ​​Eberflus said, explaining what he was looking for in a 3-tech at the Scouting Combine. “No. 1, you’ve got to win your one-on-one matchup, OK? And when they run zone away from you, you’ve got to be able to stay in the B gap. It’s that simple.”

That’s what the Bears are getting with Ogunjobi.
