The Chicago Bears selected 10 players in the 2023 NFL Draft, and there’s a chance that half of them could become starters.
First-round pick Darnell Wright is a lock to begin the year as the starting right tackle. Second-round cornerback Tyrique Stevenson has the inside track to start opposite Jaylon Johnson as an outside defender. Defensive linemen Gervon Dexter Sr. and Zacch Pickens will play significant roles this year, even if they aren’t listed in the starting lineup.
But where the Chicago Bears’ 2023 draft class can become truly special is if one of their Day 3 picks emerges as a first-teamer. According to a recent list on NFL.com, running back Roschon Johnson can become that guy.
“The Bears signed D’Onta Foreman to a one-year deal in March, but the veteran has started more than three games in a season only once (nine in 2022 with the Panthers),” NFL.com’s Chad Reuter wrote. “Johnson’s combination of power and strong second-level cuts should earn him carries early in the year, and starts later on.”
