The Bears' offensive line continues to be a huge question mark, and in 2024 I think we are going to see a big change, here. Chicago will likely be just fine keeping Darnell Wright as a starter and Teven Jenkens locking down an interior spot. But, other than those two, I believe the door is open for other players to come in and earn starting jobs.

Cody Whitehair is playing his way off the Bears' roster as we speak and has not been himself this year. Lucas Patrick will be gone after this season. Nate Davis may or may not be a long-term answer, depending on how his situation evolves.

One thing is clear, and that's the fact that the Bears need more high-level offensive linemen. In Round 3, the Bears snag Boston College interior lineman Christian Mahogany.

Mahogany is an explosive and powerful lineman who, many times, looks like the most dominant player on the field for his team. He has that finisher's mentality, playing with a level of nastiness you see in some of the top linemen in the league today. He is a fantastic find here in the third round, but very well could work his way into being a second-round selection.

Regardless, if the Bears get him here, they have just found themselves a starting lineman and have one more hole plugged.
