Following the 2019 NFL Draft, we take an early look ahead at how the Chicago Bears’ roster could look come September.

We are now about one week removed from the 2019 NFL Draft, and the Chicago Bears have earned rave reviews by many experts and analysts. Even without a first or second-round pick, the Bears were able to land two of the top 50 players in this year’s draft with their third and fourth-round selections — that is, if you asked

Regardless of outside opinions, I think the Bears earned themselves a strong grade in this year’s draft. General manager Ryan Pace didn’t have much to work with from the beginning, and came away with five highly intriguing players — two of which should contribute from Day 1.

The Bears did not end up going after depth at the edge rusher position, nor did they add anyone at tight end, offensive line or safety. These four positions were a few which many mock drafts had the Bears addressing, simply to add depth.

However, Pace and his front office made quick work when it came to signing undrafted free agents, bringing in over 20 players from that pool.

Spoiler alert: Before we get to the actual roster projection — yes, there will be undrafted free agents to earn a spot on the roster.

Pace has been a wizard when it comes to nailing the mid-to-late round picks over the years, and I think this year will be no different. This year, though, Pace absolutely nailed undrafted free agency. If you’re unfamiliar with any of the offensive or defensive guys the Bears added following the draft, we’ve got you covered.

Now, let’s dive into my early prediction for the Bears’ 2019 roster — all 53 players.
