For the first time in 76 years, the Chicago Bears hold the first overall pick in the NFL draft.
The Bears (3-14) moved into the top spot in the 2023 draft order with their loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday and the Houston Texans' comeback win over the Indianapolis Colts. Houston (3-13-1) holds the second overall pick.
The Texans had led the way to landing No. 1 overall for much of the season, sitting in the top spot since Week 10 while earning only one win and one tie in their first 14 games. But Houston upset the Tennessee Titans in Week 16, opening the door for Chicago to slide in.
