Cole Bennett Announces Chicago Bears Draft Pick: "I'm Off A Few Bud Lights"

Cole Bennett of Lyrical Lemonade fame announced the Chicago Bears' third-round pick at the NFL Draft on Friday night in Kansas City. The iconic music video director and Illinois native shared on stage that the team selected defensive tackle Zacch Pickens with the 64th overall pick. The 23-year-old played college football at South Carolina.

"It's pretty crazy to be here right now," Bennett said to the audience. "I'm off a few Bud Lights so give me a second here. But I recognize that I'm in Kansas City, so go Chiefs. But I'm really here to say bear down. Where we at Chicago?"

Cole Bennett has made a name for himself in Chicago specifically for organizing Lyrical Lemonade's annual Summer Smash Festival. This year, Kid Cudi, Future, and Playboi Carti have been tapped as headliners with special guests including $UICIDEBOY$, Lil Uzi Vert, and "a very special Chicago guest" also set to appear. Other artists on the lineup include Vince Staples, Ice Spice, GloRilla, Freddie Gibbs, Rico Nasty, Juicy J, BabyTron, Ski Mask The Slump God, NLE Choppa, G Herbo, Lil B, Tee Grizzly, Cordae, Trippie Redd, Central Cee, and Lucki, among others.

As for the Bears' young prospect, Zacch Pickens is listed at 6-foot-4 and 291-pounds as an athletic interior lineman. After the selection, general manager Ryan Poles likened him to former Kansas City Chiefs star Dontari Poe. "Like I say, there's a level of multiplier where they can help other people as well, free other individuals up to make plays. Those guys have those pieces," he said of the team's selections. "And then the other thing is just coming up through the ranks, grade the flashes. Grade the flashes." With all of their selections, the Bears will look to bounce back from a disappointing 2022 season that saw them finish with a record of just 3-14.
