Chicago Bears: Trade up in the draft or try to deal for Russell Wilson?
While the Chicago Bears have a lot of options, what will they do– if anything?
While there are many possibilities in the air, I think trading with Detroit to get a non-QB skill player and then give Andy Dalton (build the hype now) something to work with. Personally, I think drafting Rashawn Slater at No. 7 would be a great choice, as they’re getting some much-needed OL help.
As I’ve said, the first round isn’t the only time to get a QB.
If the Bears get Slater with No. 7, I think it would be worth looking at drafting a guy like Kellen Mond or Davis Mills later in the draft. Neither of them will have the expectations of a first-round pick, which should help in the development of either one at QB.
So, at the end of the day, would it be awesome to have Russell Wilson? Yes, but the price is very high. Would it be awesome to get a QB1 at No. 4? Yes, but it is unlikely that a quarterback worth drafting that high will be available.
It’s uncertain how likely it is that these trades will happen, but if they do, it’ll be interesting to see what the Bears do.
