Which NFL rosters are the best heading into the 2022 season? We rank all 32 from worst to best with eyes on the present and future.

The NFL offseason is a fun time of making predictions, wondering what could happen in the coming season, and for the majority of fan bases, it’s a time for optimism.

Everyone is undefeated at this point, but there are obviously some teams that are poised to be more competitive than others.

When ranking every roster in the league, there are a few things to take into account.

How good a team’s quarterback is plays a role in how good the overall roster can be. If a team doesn’t have a good quarterback or a quarterback is still in developmental stages, the roster around him could elevate the team as a whole.

Some teams are on the upswing, others are on the downswing.

Every NFL roster is at a different place and going in different directions, and the offseason is a time for making new friends with subjective lists. So let’s rank every roster in the NFL from worst to best.

NFL roster no. 32: Chicago Bears

. . . Chicago Bears. 32. team. 57

Justin Fields is going to need to put this Bears’ roster on his back if the team is going to have success in 2022.

Offensively, the talent is just not there or not yet proven for the Bears to be considered a viable threat in the NFC North.

Fields’ rookie season was not good to begin with. It’s arguable the Bears’ offensive line didn’t get any better this offseason and may have, in fact, gotten worse.

The skill position talent in Chicago is headlined by Darnell Mooney and David Montgomery, and neither of those players is in the top tier of their respective position groups.

Defensively, the Bears are much better than they are on offense, at least on paper.

The secondary in Chicago is going to be fun to watch with Jaylon Johnson, Eddie Jackson, and 2022 NFL Draft picks Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Brisker.

Unfortunately, general manager Ryan Poles inherited a rather rough situation. He’ll have a ton of cap space and better draft capital next offseason to work with, but for the time being, the Bears’ roster is just not good.
