The Chicago Bears could trade a couple of picks for DK Metcalf

When looking at Metcalf and what his value presents, it should be very high. The wide receiver trade market is intriguing to say the least because the last notable wide receiver trade was DeAndre Hopkins essentially getting dealt for what amounted to a second-round pick, once you sort through the other minor pieces along with David Johnson.

The Texans were pretty foolish to trade Hopkins for the price they did, so it’s hard to imagine the Seahawks would do the same. But, a couple of valuable picks might just get it done.

The Bears would send their 2022 second-rounder to Seattle, along with a third-rounder next year. That makes things even more difficult for this year’s draft, as the Bears would be down to just four picks. However, look at Metcalf as the Bears’ second-round pick this year and it feels a little better.

Poles would also have the opportunity to trade back a little bit from their third-rounder if he wanted to. And, do not forget, future draft capital can always be recouped. If Poles needed to trade a future pick to recoup additional draft capital this year, then so be it. Getting Metcalf in the fold would be a huge addition, and one would imagine Poles would want to get an extension done right away to ensure he’s around for the long haul.
