If you’re looking for a silver lining in Sunday’s 48-23 loss to the Cardinals, Bears fans, take solace in this:

According to ESPN’s latest Football Power Index, the Bears stand almost a one-in-four chance of getting the top pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

But don’t think you’re going to get rid of Jay Cutler just yet. While the Class of 2016 has a few good quarterbacks—Jared Goff of Cal and Connor Cook of Michigan State—it does not measure up to last year’s one-two punch of Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota.

More likely, the Bears would probably be deciding between DT Robert Nkemdiche of Ole Miss and DE Joey Bosa of Ohio State. Nkemdiche was freakishly good on Saturday as Ole Miss upset Alabama 43-37. Bosa is Jared Allen 10 years ago.

Here are some of the top prospects in next year’s draft:

DT Robert Nkemdiche, Ole Miss

DE Joey Bosa, Ohio State

QB Jared Godd, Cal

QB Connor Cook, Michigan St.
