The Bears have been building around a promising young core for the past few seasons now, and the rebuild's best moment came in April, when the team landed Caleb Williams and Rome Odunze. They've surrounded Williams with talented skill position players, and the additions of Keenan Allen and Gerald Everett have people dreaming of the first really explosive Bears passing offense in a generation. DJ Moore remains as reliable as ever, while Khalil Herbert and D'Andre Swift figure to form productive duo in the backfield.

At first glance, the roster has more than a couple first time Pro Bowl candidates. Williams is obviously the most obvious candidate, but guys like Herbert, Cole Kmet, and Jaquan Brisker are all ready for the proverbial next step in their NFL careers. Pro Bowls aren't exactly the end all be all in today's NFL, but still – it never hurts to have a few in your pocket when contract negotiations roll around. And while the Bears will cross that bridge when they get there, these are the three major candidates on the roster currently that could make a Pro Bowl in 2025.
