Chicago Bears 2024 draft picks

  • Round 1: No. 1 overall (via Carolina)
  • Round 1: No. 9
  • Round 3: No. 75
  • Round 4: No. 122 (via Philadelphia)

Top three needs: WR, EDGE, OT. After the Bears take a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick, finding players who can "affect" or "help" that quarterback is the top priority for coach Matt Eberflus. At the combine, Eberflus noted how the wide receiver room lacked depth, which could lead Chicago to draft a WR3 to join DJ Moore and Keenan Allen.

Another priority is finding a pass-rusher opposite Montez Sweat. In a draft with a lot of top offensive talent, Chicago could have its pick of defensive players at No. 9. But offensive tackle could also be an option at No. 9 if there's a run of quarterbacks and receivers at the top of the draft, and that'd be a welcome addition to the interior O-linemen the Bears signed in free agency. -- Courtney Cronin
