Quarterbacks the Chicago Bears could target in the first round

This position is up in the air as nobody really is sure who will be the Bears’ quarterback to start 2021. Some analysts are calling for the Bears to re-sign Mitchell Trubisky while others are calling for the Bears to cut their losses, move on, and rebuild. It really is hard to tell what the best option is.

Unfortunately for the Bears, they don’t have the plethora of options at quarterback as they have at tackle. The Bears are likely out of range of the top three quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, and Zach Wilson, but that doesn’t mean they still can’t get someone they like. Outside of those three guys, there should only be one player on their radar in the draft.

Yes, Mac Jones and Kyle Trask are also likely available at the Bears’ pick, but they are not worth the value of the Bears’ pick. They both should be second-round draft picks. Lance, on the other hand, may not even be there. If the Bears want him, they will likely need to trade up, but if he is there when the Bears pick, there should be no question to select him.
