It’s just about that time of year for Chicago Bears fans.
Once the Bears are essentially out of the playoff picture, fans love to start looking forward a bit. Certainly, we will continue to watch the regular season in hopes of finding which players the team can build on going forward.
But, otherwise it is fun and exciting to start looking ahead at “what could be” for the Bears. This past offseason, general manager Ryan Poles clearly waited to make the big moves. He wasn’t going to spend big in his first year in Chicago.
Now, the 2023 offseason will be a completely different story. The Bears will have over $100 million in cap space and plenty of draft capital to work with. Speaking of draft capital, that particular capital could look real nice by season’s end.
Currently, the Chicago Bears own the 2nd overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft and would have plenty of options.
After 12 weeks, the Bears are in position to draft second overall. At the moment, it’s the Houston Texans who own the highly-coveted number one overall pick. And, I think it’s the lock of the century to say that they’ll be going quarterback.
So, at number two, what would the Bears decide to do? There are so many options, several of which include a trade. But, where exactly would be an ideal spot to trade, if there was an ideal spot?
Or, if the Bears indeed stayed put, who is the right player to draft? Surely they wouldn’t go quarterback, knowing that Justin Fields has developed nicely.
The way it stands, the Bears have a lot of options, but three in particular stand out as perfect scenarios. If the draft started today, let’s take a look at what the Bears could do.
