Trade Number 2: The Chicago Bears get dangerous, throwing in a first-round pick for DJ Moore

Let’s say the competition heats up a bit for Moore. In that case, then the Bears could throw together a package like this one.

To start with, the Bears do give up a first-round pick in 2023. Some might not like that idea, stating that the 2023 class of wide receivers is indeed chock full of talent. And that is a valid point. However, as we have seen on several occasions in Chicago, rookies do not always pan out. At such a needy position like wide receiver, the Bears should absolutely rely on proven talent rather than taking a gamble.

If the Bears have the chance to land a guy like Moore, then doing so is a much smarter move than gambling on a rookie.

In addition to a first rounder, the Bears give up a fourth rounder in 2023 and a third rounder in 2024. However, Poles is able to snatch back a fifth-round pick in 2023, where he did some damage in his first draft with the Bears, selecting Braxton Jones and Dominique Robinson.

In total, the Bears get a Pro Bowl quality wide receiver and an extra pick. This is a slam dunk of a deal, even if it means giving up a first-round pick.
