The Scenario where the Chicago Bears trade up
There is a potential scenario where the Bears trade up in this draft, but there shouldn’t be a major case for one. The only reason Ryan Pace should trade up in this draft is to select a quarterback that has fallen outside of the top 10. If he trades up within the top 10, Pace will have to give up an enormous amount of capital for yet again another dart throw that could hit-or-miss.
The tricky thing about this is that after Trevor Lawrence, the other top quarterbacks have their issues.
Trey Lance has limited experience and his experience is only against FCS opponents making him a major risk despite his incredible athletic ability and accuracy. Justin Fields needs a lot of development and normally, Ohio State quarterbacks don’t pan out at the next level. Zach Wilson has spotty footwork and questionable decision-making despite his incredible ability to make plays outside of the pocket and when the play breaks down.
The Bears will be taking a major risk with one of these three guys trading up, but the Bears need to continue taking their shots. They can’t give up because of a failed pick with Mitchell Trubisky. So, what if a team won’t trade with them, or they don’t have the capital?
