Justin Fields: Perhaps the best thing we can say about Fields' rookie season is that he gets to reset in Year 2 and the new coaching staff should put Fields in more situations that play to his strengths. Starting 10 games as a rookie, Fields ran more over his final five starts and finished as a top-10 weekly quarterback in four of those five starts. A weak supporting cast (offensive line and pass catchers) remains a concern that could impact his growth, but Fields has top-10 upside.

Chicago Bears Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL draft, we will update our Chicago Bears Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Chicago Bears from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Bears:

The Draft Network - Crabbs (9/5)

4. Peter Skoronski, OT, Northwestern

This will continue to be a "draft the best fit on the offensive line you can find" spot. Justin Fields has shown a lot of bright flashes this preseason, but how frequent will the flashes be when we're playing for keeps? How do we get the flashes to be more frequent? By improving the cast around him. General manager Ryan Poles, as a former offensive lineman himself, will surely value the opportunity to land a pass protector for his quarterback.

Sporting News - Iyer (9/3)

6. Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU

The Bears have Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet as key targets for Justin Fields in Year 2, but there's not much else in their receiving corps to help the talented downfield passer turn the corner. Boutte, if available whenever Chicago picks, would be a no-brainer to raise the big-play output as the latest big-time LSU gamebreaker.

SI - Hanson (8/31)

5. Kayshon Boutte, WR, LSU

Whether Chicago uses its 2023 first-rounder on the offensive line or playmakers, it's clear that the Bears need to put more talent around Justin Fields. Boutte closed his freshman season with an SEC-record 308 receiving yards against Ole Miss and led the team in receiving yards (509) and touchdowns (nine) in an abbreviated six-game season (ankle injury). Boutte uses his outstanding speed to rack up yards after the catch in bunches.

2022 NFL Power Rankings: Chicago Bears

Throughout the 2022 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Chicago Bears rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-NFL Draft roundup for the Bears in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 31

Player who benefited most from draft: S Eddie Jackson

The Bears came away from the second round with two starting-caliber defensive backs and hope to revive their secondary off the play of rookies, including Jaquan Brisker. Jackson hasn't recorded an interception since the 2019 season and might stand to benefit from playing farther away from the box, with Brisker starting opposite him at strong safety. Brisker is a physical, versatile defender who played 400 snaps at safety, 100 snaps at inside linebacker and 100 snaps at slot corner in 2021 at Penn State. With this season being dubbed a "clean slate" for Jackson, aligning him with a DB whose skill set complements his could lead him to rediscover the level of play that made him one of the league's best safeties three years ago. -- Courtney Cronin

NFL.com -- Rank: 24

How confident should we be about Justin Fields and the opportunity he is getting in Chicago? The Bears saddled the quarterback with a lame-duck head coach as a rookie, then took away his No. 1 wide receiver by allowing Allen Robinson to leave for the Rams this offseason. Absent a first-round pick (that went to the Giants in the Fields draft trade last year), Chicago opted to wait until the third round in Vegas to address the offense. Perhaps Tennessee wideout Velus Jones Jr. carves out a role as a rookie, but it's more likely Fields will be staring down a lot of blanketed receivers when he drops back to pass this fall. Give the kid a chance!
