The Chicago Bears go for the jugular and waste no time with a Justin Fields trade

This first scenario is one that has been often discussed by Bears fans. Since the Atlanta Falcons were reported as being open to trading the fourth overall pick, much as been made about which teams should move up and how much it would cost.

For just about any team involved, it would have to be multiple first-round picks. For a team like the Bears, who have a late first this year and might end up having later firsts in the future, it would cost three first rounders.

The Falcons currently have Matt Ryan under contract for a couple more years, and although they could potentially work out a trade in the next year or so, maybe the smarter thing to do would be to retool that defense instead.

Ryan has plenty of weapons to work with, and the defense has been the major issue in Atlanta. The Falcons can score points. That’s not the issue. It’s difficult not to score points when Ryan is on the field and has a healthy Calvin Ridley and Julio Jones — no matter who the running back may be.

With three firsts and a third from the Bears, Atlanta could add some tremendous defensive talent in the next three drafts. Meanwhile, the Bears get their franchise quarterback and, quite frankly, the second-best quarterback in the draft — at pick number four. It’s a victory for Chicago.

But, could Fields’ draft day slide go even further down?
