3. Chicago Bears

The Bears seem like the real NFC North wild card next season. They're a young team that quietly had one of the best defenses in football last season, and very well may go into the '24 season with one of the best quarterback prospehcts of the last decade. They have a ton of draft capital, even more cap space, and an offensive staff in place that seems more equipped to implement a modern scheme. It's very possible that they leave the draft with the best QB and pass-catcher available, and f Caleb Williams ends up being the player that most people seem to think he is, the Bears are going to be a tough out.
