Bears improve their offense in Lance Zierlein’s latest mock draft

The Chicago Bears’ direction in the 2024 NFL draft is all anyone can think of right now. Which makes sense considering they have the No. 1 overall pick (courtesy of the Carolina Panthers) along with their own No. 9 selection.

NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein released his latest mock draft, and it has some very interesting selections. There are a few trades made and some really good selections across the league.

As far the Bears’ selections go, it’s an ideal first round.

Zierlein had the Bears, to the surprise of nobody, selecting Caleb Williams with the first overall pick. It’s essentially a lock at this point, especially after the team traded away Justin Fields.

At this point, anything other than the Bears taking Williams with this selection would be a shock.

Between picks 2-8, there was a steady mix of other quarterbacks, offensive weapons, and defensive players taken. Washington wide receiver Rome Odunze was still on the board, though, and that is the direction Zierlein has the Bears going with this selection.

Every time I put together a mock draft for the Bears, I keep coming away with Caleb Williams and an ultra-talented wideout. In this case, they sit tight with the ninth pick and land a terrific ball-winner with untapped potential as a route-runner.

Adding a dynamic young receiver like Odunze would only enhance a good receivers room that already has DJ Moore and Keenan Allen. That trio could be one of the best in the NFL (and Bears history).

If Chicago were to acquire this type of haul later this month, they could be seen as a potential playoff squad. General manager Ryan Poles has done a masterful job so far, and this is his chance to get even better.
