MTMV Sports Network Chicago Bears NFL Mock Draft 1.0: The Dawn of a New Day


Reviewing the Chicago Bears 2023-2024 NFL Season:

The Chicago Bears' 2023-2024 NFL season was a journey filled with ups and downs. If you watched the Bears in the preseason, you would have assumed that they were heading towards a breakout season, Fields to DJ Moore looked like the second coming of Jalen Hurts and AJ Brown. The running game even look rejuvenated as Khalil Herbert finally had the backfield all to himself minus David Montgomery. It just seemed like a beautiful time to be a Bears fan.

To add to the excitement the Bears followed their trade with the Panthers up with a great draft, selecting Darnell Wright who highlighted a great class that received an overall score of B+ by ESPN.


However, the regular season would unfold in a different way for the Bears as an early injury to Justin Fields derailed the hopes of the Bears season.

Amidst the trials, the Bears showcased glimpses of potential, and are eager to get back to adding to their storied history that includes iconic moments and legendary players. From the "Monsters of the Midway" era to the unforgettable Super Bowl victory in 1985, the Bears have left an indelible mark on the NFL.


As the franchise navigates the modern era, Head Coach Matt Eberflus and the Bears' leadership aim to return the team to prominence. The season provided valuable insights into areas of improvement, setting the stage for strategic decisions in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Round 1 - Pick 1: Caleb Williams, QB, University of Southern California:

- Value Added: Williams' dynamic playmaking ability and arm strength position him as a transformative force for the Bears' offense. The Bears have a big choice to make in either keeping Fields, Drafting Caleb Williams and Moving On, or keeping both players. If you listen to Fields at all you may believe that the decision hasn't been made or at least he is unaware of their choice. However, Fields unfollowed the Bears on IG and is seemingly ok with the "business of football", despite his desire to stay.

The potential dual-quarterback strategy, keeping both Williams and Justin Fields, echoes precedents set by successful franchises (Brees/Rivers, Smith/Mahomes), (Rodgers/Love). Williams brings excitement and versatility, adding a new dimension to the Bears' quarterback position. If the Bears decide to draft Williams, they will do so understanding that wherever Fields goes next he will have massive success.




Round 1 - Pick 9: Rome Odunze, WR, University of Washington:

- Value Added: Addressing the need for a formidable wide receiver opposite DJ Moore, the Bears select Odunze. His monstrous presence at WR makes him a prime candidate to bolster the Bears' passing game. The decision to prioritize Odunze over an offensive tackle indicates the confidence in his potential impact on the team. The Bears will now have potential to have one of the best wide receiver tandems in the NFC.


Round 3 - Pick 75: Patrick Paul, Offensive Tackle:

- Value Added: Paul's standout performance at the Senior Bowl elevates his stock, making him a valuable addition to the Bears' offensive line. The emphasis on bolstering protection for their quarterbacks showcases the Bears' commitment to shoring up areas of weakness from the previous season.


Round 4 - Pick 111: Mohamed Kamara, Edge Rusher, Colorado State:

- Value Added: Kamara's reputation as a sack machine positions him as a key asset for the Bears' defense. His ability to disrupt opposing quarterbacks adds a new dimension to the Bears' pass rush, addressing a critical defensive need. He will be a nice piece to pair with Montez Sweat. S



Round 4 - Pick 123: Maason Smith, Defensive Tackle, LSU:

- Value Added: Despite a challenging season at LSU, injuries hampering his performance, Smith's potential makes him a steal in the fourth round. The Bears recognize the opportunity to secure one of the best available defensive tackles, banking on his resurgence and impact in the later stages of the season.


Round 5 - Pick 143: Cooper Beebe, Offensive Guard, Kansas State:

- Value Added: Beebe's reliability and minimal sacks surrendered over the past two seasons position him as a solution to fortify the Bears' offensive line. Coupled with Patrick Paul, Beebe contributes to the effort to address shortcomings in the Bears' protection schemes.
