The 2024 NFL Draft is already going to be a success for the Chicago Bears. We know this, because, the Bears are going to draft USC quarterback Caleb Williams.

It's a pretty easy call at this point. This isn't even an assumption. Chicago's next quarterback will be Caleb Williams, period.

But what happens if the rest of the draft doesn't exactly go as planned for the Bears? How does general manager Ryan Poles respond? Should the Bears still feel just as good about the 2024 season if everything beyond the first pick goes a bit different than fans expected?

Let's try and see what the Bears' draft class might look like if fans saw something different than what most have in their heads.

The Bears select Caleb Williams no. 1 overall in this mock draft, but the rest of the way, things are questionable at best

Again, we know Williams is going number one. Everything leading up to this point says the Bears are drafting Williams. The team has met with them as though they're already trying to familiarize him with coaches, teammates, personnel and even the gameplan.

Williams is the best quarterback prospect we have seen coming out of college in maybe a decade, and the Bears are going to be lucky enough to get him. He's been self-described as both a surgeon and a magician, just as Ryan Poles likes to label different types of quarterbacks.

Whether it's extending plays or making throws with pinpoint accuracy, the film shows all. Williams is ready for the NFL and he's ready to take Chicago to places they haven't been in quite some time.

Now, here comes the real test. What happens when the Bears don't see things go the way they wanted?
