1. Braxton Jones, OT

This would easily be the most shocking move on this list since Braxton Jones has been the starting left tackle for Chicago for the past two seasons. A former fifth-round pick, he's exceeded expectations to be able to start 28 games but he's suddenly got some competition.

In Round 3 this year, the Bears added Yale's Kiran Amagadjie. The 6-foot-5, 323-pounder might not come from a power program but he looks as though he was built for playing football.

Not only does he have the size to match up against any defensive lineman but Amagadjie has incredible length with 36 and 1/8-inch arms. He's also more athletic than most men his size, and considering he went to Yale, he has the smarts to make it in the NFL.

The large concern with him is going to be the jump in competition from the Ivy League — which is why he lasted until Round 3. Having said that, Amagadjie might have still been a late-first or early-second round pick in most draft classes. The 2024 class just happened to be stacked which played into the favor of Chicago.

If he's able to get to camp and appear ready to play, there's a chance the Bears could start him and see what Jones would bring via trade.
