The NFC North is arguably the most unpredictable division in the league this season. Aaron Rodgers' departure leaves the Green Bay Packers with an uncertain future.

Offensive line play could make all the difference. Protecting the quarterback and shutting down some of the best pass rushers in the division will go a long way in crucial moments.

It's a strength of this division. While you can question various position groups on each roster, the NFC North has a lot of offensive line talent. But which team has the best unit?

4. Chicago Bears

Projected starters (from left to right): Braxton Jones, Teven Jenkins, Cody Whitehair, Nate Davis, Darnell Wright

The Bears improved their offensive line by drafting Darnell Wright in the first round, and this group has the potential to take a significant step forward in 2023.

A lot of reshuffling is expected from last season. Wright should start immediately, and the Bears also added right guard Nate Davis in free agency. That means third-year Teven Jenkins is expected to switch to left guard, with former Pro Bowler Cody Whitehair moving back to center.

The pieces are there for the Bears' offensive line. They just need to adjust with a couple of new additions and players switching positions.
