2023 NFL draft: Who were the last 5 players picked at each Bears slot?

The 2023 NFL draft is upon us, where the Chicago Bears will welcome some new rookies to the fold.

After trading the No. 1 pick to the Carolina Panthers for a haul before free agency, the Bears are sitting at ninth overall. There are a number of directions the team can go with that top-10 pick, including potentially trading back a second time in the first round.

They have 10 selections in all — for now — including four in the top 64, where general manager Ryan Poles has a chance to find some impact players.

Chicago also has six draft selections on Day 3, where Poles has the opportunity to find some late-round gems. Players like wide receiver Darnell Mooney (5th round), left tackle Braxton Jones (5th round), edge rusher Trevis Gipson (5th round) and running back Khalil Herbert (6th round) were some recent late-round steals.

Let’s check out the last five players taken at each of the Bears’ 10 draft slots ahead of the start of the 2023 NFL draft:
