The Bears are clearly looking to build a young core to compete in the future. 

According to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times, they already have some pieces who have high ceilings. The Bears beat reporter dropped by CSN to rank his top five players on the current roster. As you could have guessed, the young guys top the list. 

5. Josh Sitton, OL

Jahns' take: He's the captain on this team and a proven player. 

4. Jerrell Freeman, LB

Jahns' take: Very underrated player looking to redeem himself after four-game suspension. Also, good in coverage. 

3. Jordan Howard, RB

Jahns' take: He is the best defense for Mike Glennon or Mitch Trubisky. Howard is the focal point of this offense. 

2. Mitch Trubisky, QB

Jahns' take: He has a lot to prove still. He's very polished and his teammates are starting to gravitate towards him. 

1. Leonard Floyd, OLB

Jahns' take: This guy is a star in the making. He has talent like Von Miller, so don't limit your expectations.
