The Bears did not have a great 2021 season under Matt Nagy as they finished with a record of 6-11. Chicago started three different quarterbacks under center, including rookie Justin Fields, who was drafted in the first round of the 2021 draft. Fields played in 12 games and started in 10 for the Bears.
After another disappointing season, the Bears fired Nagy and hired former Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus as their new head coach. The Bears did not re-sign Allen Robinson and also traded Khalil Mack to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Super Bowl 57: +10000
Win total: 7.0 (Over +115, Under -135)
For the Bears to win more than seven games this season, they need to draft a wide receiver to pair with Darnell Mooney and Byron Pringle, who they signed in free agency. With their first selection in the second round, the Bears should be in a great spot to get Fields a new wideout. Chicago also needs to add depth to their offensive line and a starting cornerback to play opposite of Jaylon Johnson.
