The Chicago Bears have already completely reshaped how the NFL Draft will look this April after trading back to the ninth overall pick with the Panthers in exchange for D.J. Moore, a second-round pick this year, and a first-rounder next year. After trading for Chase Claypool at the midseason point of the 2022 season, the Bears have two second-round picks this year from the Ravens and the 49ers, as well as their own third-round pick, number 64 overall.

Just a season ago in his first offseason as general manager, Ryan Poles was able to find two day-one contributors in the second round with cornerback Kyler Gordon and safety Jaquan Brisker. With that haul, the Bears as an organization should feel strongly about their chances of continuing to flesh out this roster with talented players on the second day of the NFL Draft.

With a number of positions of need on the roster currently, there are many great players that the Chicago Bears could add in the second and third rounds to bring in instant starters and contributors, making this team much more complete and competitive heading into the 2023 season.

With that being said, here are seven players who are not only great Day 2 prospects, but can come into Chicago as Day 1 starters.
