The Chicago Bears could go all-in on a first-round quarterback

Already this offseason, the Dolphins have made a couple of big moves. The most notable, of course, was to move back from pick no. 3 to no. 12 by making a deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

Almost immediately after making that trade, though, the Dolphins made yet another move. The second one came when they moved back up to pick no. 6, formerly held by the Philadelphia Eagles.

The plan is pretty clear for Miami. They want to land one of the top offensive talents at that pick, in order to give Tua one more weapon. Then, there’s the Bears, who would have to move up right around that pick in order to have a shot at getting a first-round quarterback.

If Chicago is going to have a chance at a player like Justin Fields or Trey Lance, they first need to hope that the Atlanta Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals pass on those two. Cincinnati is almost a guarantee to pass on a quarterback, with Joe Burrow already under center there.

If one of those quarterbacks fell to pick number six, the Bears should attempt to go up and get him.

In moving up to the sixth selection, Chicago would send Miami their no. 20 pick this year, a first next year, a first in 2023 and a third-round pick this year.

If it meant the Bears could end up with Fields or Lance, this trade would be capital well spent.
