The Chicago Bears are going to make the first overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. They were gifted the selection when the Houston Texans won their final game of the season on a miracle play. Now, it seems like they are going to cash in.
NFL insider Adam Schefter went on ESPN 1000’s Waddle and Silvy to discuss this pick and made a claim that should excite Chicago Bears fans. It sounds like the Bears are going to get a haul for the selection in a trade.
The Bears have Justin Fields and they believe in him. That means that they don’t need to use the first overall pick on a quarterback. There are also no players at other positions that you would consider “must haves” at this point in time.
Schefter thinks, based on what he’s heard, that the Bears are going to get a “franchise-changing” amount of picks out of this number-one selection. That is amazing news. Obviously, they need to be smart with what they do with those picks but this is a great start.
The Chicago Bears have a chance to change their franchise this off-season.
He called the return that they are going to get a “small fortune” and referred to their number one pick as a “lottery ticket”. If anyone in the world would have the correct insight on this, it would be Adam Schefter so his saying that it is okay to dream big is fantastic.
It would be nice to see the Bears finally take advantage of the luck that has been shown to them. Ryan Poles has an opportunity here to become a legend with this franchise.
He tore the team down to nothing and it worked, they have the top pick. Now it is time to start building it back up using the haul they get for this pick.
The Bears need help everywhere on the roster except quarterback. They need to surround Justin Fields with a better offensive line and more weapons so that he isn’t always running for his life. On the flip side, the defense needs a lot of help all over.
In addition to this haul that they are expecting to get for the first overall pick, they have the most cap space in the NFL by a lot. We can only hope that all of these factors lead to them finally having some sustained success. This is one of the most important off-seasons in their franchise history.
