The Chicago Bears can make a trade to move up a few spots to target one of their favorite prospects in the draft.

The Chicago Bears are only a few weeks away from finally landing their next franchise quarterback. Bears fans are naturally laser-focused on their first-overall pick and drafting Caleb Williams. However, Chicago has three more picks in the 2024 NFL Draft: the no. 9, no. 75, and no. 122.

Since general manager Ryan Poles traded away most of the team's 2024 draft picks over the last two years, the Bears are limited in what they can do at the draft. One thing they can consider is packaging what they have in a trade to move up a couple of spots.

If the Bears feel like the player they have their eyes on will not be available at no. 9, they could throw their third-round pick plus a future asset to move up and draft their guy. Let's take a look at who it might be worth trading up for.

1. Marvin Harrison Jr, WR

This is a no-brainer. Any team that has the opportunity to pair the best quarterback in the draft with the best wide receiver would do so in a heartbeat.

Marvin Harrison Jr. will likely be the first non-QB drafted in this year's class. After the first batch of quarterbacks; including Williams, Drake Maye, and Jayden Daniels is gone, Harrison Jr. could be drafted as high as fourth overall. In that scenario, the Bears would have to part ways with the no. 9. from this year's draft, as well as their third-round pick and a future second-round pick or two.

That may seem like a hefty price to pay but the Ohio State standout is one of the best receiver prospects we have seen in a while and he may take this offense to the next level for years to come.
