It's hard to find too many Bears players who would surprise people with huge seasons next year. Most of their core, both on offense and defense, are well-established names at this point. From Montez Sweat to TJ Edwards, DJ Moore to Keenan Allen, the Bears team that lost 14 straight games at the beginning of the Matt Eberflus era is virtually unrecognizable by now.

And technically Caleb Williams isn't on the team yet, nor would he really surprise that many people if he played well.

There are some places on their roster where guys have Unsung Hero potential, though. Both the offensive line and the secondary are spots where young, talented players seemingly are right on the edge of taking that proverbial next step in the coming years. And realistically, they're going to have to if the Bears want to beat the Packers for the first time in like, four decades or whatever it is.

These are the four Bears players who could be nice surprises for the team in 2024.
