Are the Chicago Bears sold on Caleb Williams, one GM says both Jayden Daniels and Williams will be good, but he likes Daniels more. According to Outkick’s Armando Salguero, do not rule out Jayden Daniels just yet.

A general manager told Salguero the tape of Daniels and Caleb Williams both speak of players who will start immediately in 2024.

“That’s not a question with them,” he said. “But what I see is one of those guys is more capable in the pocket. One of them feels more at ease and makes more plays playing from the pocket. And the thing people don’t understand is that to win big in the NFL, you still need a quarterback that can be dynamic from the pocket because good defenses will scheme the pass rush to keep your quarterback in the pocket.

“And Jayden Daniels, in my opinion, is better from the pocket than Caleb Williams. Don’t get me wrong, Williams has some Patrick Mahomes qualities to him outside the pocket. He makes some unholy throws. But he seems to like doing that more than staying in there and playing pitch and catch, which an NFL quarterback has to do consistently to move the chains.”

“Daniels is going to deal with durability questions because of his build compared to Caleb and definitely compared to Drake Maye,” an NFL personnel director said. “But he makes you defend the entire field and when he’s got nothing downfield, or it breaks down, he can get out of there and use his legs. His speed is a weapon.

What do you think, could the Bears pick Jayden Daniels over Caleb Williams?
