Where would the Chicago Bears be selecting if the NFL draft were on Sunday?

With just one game left to go, the Chicago Bears are in the midst of draft season. Now, the team is fully on board with finding out what they have for 2018 and moving forward. With that said, they are now jockeying other teams for potential draft order. Where would they pick if the season ended today?

Right now, the Bears would pick ninth. However, there is a lot of potential shuffling that could happen with a loss or win. The 49ers, Jets and Broncos all have five wins, tied with the Chicago Bears. The 49ers take on the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams are resting their starters, and given Jimmy Garoppolo, it looks like a Bears loss in Minnesota will have San Fransisco passing them.

The Jets are at the Patriots, who are playing for home field. It is safe to say they are going to lose. Then, there are the Broncos. The Broncos are taking on the Chiefs, who, like the Rams have nothing to play for. This means the first start of Patrick Mahomes. Without knowing what Mahomes can do this is harder to project, but still an interesting loop and one that gives Denver a chance.

This gives the Bears a chance to jump two spots up the order. that does not even factor in what tie breakers would occur if the Buccaneers somehow beat the Saints or if the Texans beat the Colts.
