We've almost made it, Bears fans. The 2024 NFL Draft is just weeks away.

The 2024 NFL Draft will be pivotal for the Chicago Bears. With the team holding two top-ten picks, the Bears can impact the entire first round. Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that the Bears traded Justin Fields to the Pittsburgh Steelers. With a gaping hole at the game's most important position, it seems like a foregone conclusion that the team will select USC QB Caleb Williams with the first pick.

In my seven-round mock draft, I had the Bears selecting Williams with the first pick and wide receiver Rome Odunze with the ninth pick. Considering the Bears only hold two other picks, Pick 75 and Pick 122, I figured we should look at possible options with those selections. In my mock, I had the team trade back and accumulate more picks, but for this exercise, let's assume the Bears stay put.

Now, we're going to identify a couple of players who could be available to the Bears in the third and fourth rounds.
