Bears NFL Draft Picks 2024: Full list of Chicago’s draft picks for every round

2023 was another lackluster season for the Chicago Bears, finishing at the bottom of the NFC North with a 7-10 record (a disappointment, but, it should be noted, improvement on 2022’s bottom of the barrel 3-14 showing). After trading away the No. 1 overall pick last season, the Bears have opted to keep that top spot in 2024, and will select first when the draft gets underway on Thursday, April 25th.

The Bears are widely expected use that first pick on USC quarterback Caleb Williams. That expectation solidified when Chicago traded QB Justin Fields, the 11th overall pick in 2021, to the Pittsburgh Steelers. In exchange, the Bears got a 2025 sixth-round pick that improves to a fourth-rounder if Fields plays 51 percent of offensive plays this season (Fields will be sharing the QB room with Russell Wilson, who arrived from Denver this offseason).

The Fields move silenced most of the chatter that the Bears would trade away the top pick again, or use it on a star receiver. But beyond the top overall pick, the team has additional capital to use, including the No. 9 overall pick and selections in the third and fourth rounds. After a productive free agency, the team is primed to make additional key moves via the draft to help pull a historic franchise out of the basement of the NFC North.

Wide receiver remains a key need for the Bears, who could look to add another skill player to join DJ Moore and Keenan Allen. Allen joined the Chicago roster via a trade with the Chargers in March after spending his entire 11-season career with the franchise. The Bears could also look to bolster their defensive line via the draft, ideally finding a complement to DE Montez Sweat.
