Yesterday, news from Colin Cowherd claimed that USC Trojans QB Caleb Williams did not want to play for the Bears, and if that is truly the case, then why should the Bears force it?
The Bears should be smart and trade down again. Last year they were able to get a true number 1 wide receiver and land another big piece in right tackle Darnell Wright. The Bears are not desperate and remember the only reason they are picking first is because Carolina sucked. This is Carolina’s pick not the Bears.
The Bears have currently have the first and the 9th pick. There are rumors that the Commanders want Caleb Williams and if that is the case then make them pay. Do not just pass on Caleb Williams. I would draft him still and then trade him or sell that pick for the moon. The Bears do not need to be backed into a corner by a prospect that does not want them. They have Justin Fields who looked great this year with some protection and a true solid receiver.
If the Bears can trade out of one and pick up several other prospects or draft picks they should do it, and focus on trying to land Marvin Harrison Jr.
The Bears could potentially land a first pick from the Commanders in 2025, and their second back. If the Bears were smart they would trade the pick for the number 2 pick, a first in 2025 and their second back from the Commanders.
That would allow the Bears to pick 2nd and 9th. Take Marvin Harrison Jr. with the second pick and then take a starting left tackle with the 9th. Continue to solidify the line and give Fields weapons. In the second you have another pick to add talent. The Bears are sitting in a pretty place. If they can continue to build through the draft and provide Fields weapons they will be just fine!
