How Many Draft Picks Do the Bears Have in the 2024 NFL Draft?
Thanks to Chicago’s massive trade down from the No. 1 pick in the 2023 draft, the Bears have the Carolina Panthers’ first-round pick in 2024 and their own. They had previously traded their 2024 seventh-round pick, and they have the Philadelphia Eagles’ fourth-round pick in 2024.
On NFL trade deadline day, the Bears traded their 2024 second-round pick for edge-rusher Montez Sweat from the Washington Commanders.
During the preseason, the Bears traded with the Miami Dolphins for veteran guard Dan Feeney, a versatile offensive lineman with experience playing guard and center. Chicago sent a 2024 sixth-round draft pick to Miami for Feeney.
In total, Chicago has six draft picks in next year’s draft.
Who Did the Bears Draft in 2023?
The Bears traded back from No. 1 overall and acquired wide receiver DJ Moore. They used the draft’s early rounds to strengthen their offensive and defensive lines.
Darnell Wright, Chicago’s first-round selection, is their starting right tackle. Wright excels in run blocking and provides the Bears’ front five with potential and stability. Thus far, Wright has been a useful starter.
Although no edge rusher was found in the draft, the Bears added two strong interior players on Day 2. Gervon Dexter and Zacch Pickens are already over 300 pounds and have become immediate rotational players.
The Bears’ defense had concerns in this area in 2022, and they’re still not great, but Dexter and Pickens have long-term potential as contributors. Their pass-rushing abilities will define their upside.

Second-round cornerback Tyrique Stevenson has already become a starter, playing most available snaps. The zone-based corner has made the most of his early playing time. The Bears didn’t have a lot of corner depth before the draft, so Stevenson’s arrival raised the unit’s floor a little bit.
Although Khalil Herbert has owned the lion’s share of carries thus far, Roschon Johnson has shown good potential as a backup. Tyler Scott, who fell further in the draft than anticipated, could eventually make an impact as Chicago’s WR4.
