Now that the NFL regular season is in the books, it's time to look back at the Chicago Bears' 2023 draft class. So, how did the 10 rookies fair in their first year of professional football?

Travis Bell, DT (R7, Pick 218): N/A

Travis Bell's time with the Bears didn't last long.

After being drafted in the seventh round, the former Kennesaw State defender was waived by Chicago in August before being assigned to the practice squad. He was signed by the Atlanta Falcons in November only to be released just a month later before being claimed off waivers by the Cincinnati Bengals.

Bell appeared in just two games (both with the Falcons), registering two solo tackles.

Kendall Williamson, S (R7, Pick 258): N/A

Unfortunately, it's impossible to grade Kendall Williamson at the moment. The 23-year-old safety didn't suit up for a single game with the Bears this season, spending his entire rookie campaign on the practice squad.

Hopefully, Williamson has a productive offseason and is able to see some playing time in 2024.
