The ninth overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft belongs to the Chicago Bears. It will be the Bears' second pick as they also own the first overall selection.

The Bears only have four picks in the NFL Draft and because they are still developing their roster, there's some likelihood that they could be looking at moving back.

That is typically baked into the odds. But, if they keep their pick, the most likely options will be helping out the presumptive No. 1 overall pick Caleb Williams. That means they could be looking at offensive tackle or wide receiver.

Byron Murphy +130

Murphy has been shooting up draft boards since his performance against Washington in the College Football Playoff. Murphy's combination of size and explosiveness has scouts and general managers foaming at the mouth.

The 6-foot-1, 308-pounder racked up five sacks for the Texas Longhorns this past season.

It's rare to see a defensive tackle prioritized over pass rushers, but Murphy is the type of player who could do so.

Rome Odunze +250

Odunze would likely be one of the top wide receivers off the board if he were in a different draft class. Marvin Harrison Jr. and Malik Nabers are two of the top receiving prospects the NFL has seen in years. That puts Odunze in a tier of his own as the third receiver.

Odunze led the country in receiving yards this past season with 1,640. He also caught 13 touchdown passes. It's hard to see him getting drafted over Nabers or Harrison Jr., but he'll still be one of the top picks in the draft.

Olumuyiwa Fashanu +600

Fashanu is one of the top tackles in the draft. If Latham and Alt are off the board, it is highly likely that Fashanu would be the next tackle off of the board.

There is another reason why the Bears might target Fashanu in particular. Fashanu and Williams were teammates in high school, so it would be fitting for him to protect his high school quarterback in the NFL.

Fashanu started 20 games over the past two seasons for the Penn State Nittany Lions. It could have been more without injury. He was named as a first-time AP All-American this past season.
