Here's a look at Bears players who could draw Pro Bowl consideration:

OFFENSE

RB Tarik Cohen
In just his second season as a pro, Cohen has showed why he's one of the most dynamic running backs in the league. His dual-threat ability makes him a constant threat to get to the end zone when the ball is in his hands. He's also showcased his ability as an explosive threat on the special teams unit, tallying 265 punt returns yards this year, the second most in the NFL. He leads all NFL running back with five catches of at least 25 yards and ranks second among backs in total receiving yards.

RB Jordan Howard
Howard is on pace to have a career single-season high in touchdowns. Howard's ability to bulldoze through defensive lines, especially in short yardage situations, has made him a valuable asset to the Bears offense. Howard has a team-high five rushing touchdowns this season and has shown he can produce out of the backfield, averaging more than eight yards per reception this season.

QB Mitchell Trubisky
Trubisky has done it all this year, and he's gotten better with each game. Over the last six games, Trubisky has totalled 1,969 yards of offense and accounted for 19 touchdowns. He's had two first halves this year with a perfect 158.3 passer rating. Trubisky has also been a force on the ground, ranking second among QBs with 320 rushing yards this season. Perhaps most importantly, he's shown the demeanor and mentality of a franchise quarterback, comfortable leading a team.

TE Trey Burton
Burton is having a breakout season and has earned the attention he's beginning to receive. The first-year Bears player has turned into a dynamic receiving threat at the tight end position. Burton has carried over the star power he earned throwing a touchdown pass as an Eagle in last year's Super Bowl, and turned it into on-field production this season. Burton leads the team with five touchdown receptions and is tied for third in the league among tight ends this year. He's already broken his single-season receiving yards record, with a new personal best of 411 yards this season, and is on pace to have double the number of touchdowns as he's had in any other year.

OT Charles Leno Jr.
Leno Jr. has been a constant on the offensive line this year at left tackle and has been a workhorse for a line that has had to shuffle around recently due to injuries. The Bears rank in the top 10 in the league in fewest sacks allowed, and Leno has been critical in limiting pass rushers to get to the quarterback this season.

WR Allen Robinson II
Robinson wasted no time in showing how valuable he is in his return against the Lions this past week. After missing two weeks with a groin injury, Robinson looked back at 100 percent, juking defenders and making acrobatic catches. He caught six passes for 133 yards and tallied two touchdowns. Robinson recorded 98 total yards in just the first quarter. Despite missing two games, Robinson has four touchdowns this year, and has produced big results despite going up against teams' top defensive players.

OL Cody Whitehair
Whitehair has been a focal point of the Bears' strong offensive line. Whitehair hasn't missed a snap this year and has been a force in protecting Trubisky from pass rushers. Whitehair has stepped up recently through his play and his leadership as the offensive line has made adjustments due to injuries.

DEFENSE

CB Kyle Fuller
Fuller is in the midst of the best season of his career and has proven to be a matchup nightmare for any receiver in the league. His ability to cover his man and break away when needed to make tackles has made him one of the best cornerbacks in the league this year. He had one of the best defensive performances of the season against Buffalo two weeks ago, with two pass breakups that resulted in Bears interceptions and had an interception of his own.

Fuller has four interceptions this season, tied for second most in the league. Entering this season, he had eight in his career, and he is on pace to have eight picks this year alone. He's also been a force defending passes. His 10 pass breakups are tied for fourth most in the league.

DT Akiem Hicks
Hicks has been a key part of a Bears defense that has dominated opponents for most of the year. Hicks had Pro Bowl worthy numbers a year ago, but he didn't get the nod. This year, there's no excuse he doesn't make it. He's been one of the league's most dynamic playmakers on defense, tallying three sacks and three forced fumbles.

LB Khalil Mack
September's NFC Defensive Player of the Month should be a shoe in for the Pro Bowl. Mack put up ridiculous numbers in his first four games, recording five sacks, four forced fumbles and an interception returned for a touchdown. Mack missed two games due to an ankle injury but bounced back in a big way in his return against the Lions with two sacks. Even when he hasn't gotten to the quarterback himself, he requires so much attention from opposing offensive linemen that he creates opportunities for others Bears pass rushers.

NT Eddie Goldman
Goldman has been a major asset for the Bears this year at the nose tackle position, complimenting a dominant secondary and pass rush defense. Goldman has tallied 25 tackles this year and three tackles-for-loss.

S Eddie Jackson
Jackson has been a quarterback's nightmare this season. Jackson has two interceptions, five passes defended, a forced fumble and a fumble returned for a touchdown this year. His ability to get to the ball and make open field tackles has forced quarterbacks to look to other options downfield.

LB Danny Trevathan
Trevathan has been a consistent part of a dominant Bears pass rushing group. Trevathan has two sacks, three tackles-for-loss, three passes defended, a forced fumble and an interception this year. His explosiveness off the end has been crucial in the Bears limiting opposing teams' run games and pressuring the quarterback often.

Sherrick McManis
McManis has been a force on special teams this season, taking pride in an important niche role. He's also recorded an interception and sack on defense this season.
