To kick things off, Poles and the Bears move up into the first round by trading with the Tennessee Titans. Chicago gets Tennessee’s No. 26 overall pick along with number 90 — a third-rounder. In exchange, the Titans get three picks: numbers 39, 71 and 186.

With that first-round selection, the Bears go with Arkansas wide receiver Treylon Burks. The Bears have a clear need to replace Allen Robinson and find a true number one option to pair with Darnell Mooney, and Burks would do exactly that.

Burks stands a towering 6-foot-3 and weighs in at a solid 225 pounds. He is the epitome of a legitimate number one wide receiver, physically speaking. His huge frame gives quarterbacks a monstrous target and, when combined with his size 4XL hands, this kid is every bit of a future star.

Burks could line up anywhere for the Bears and still be effective. His strength and physical nature allow him to break tackles easily and he is very rarely tackled on the first attempt. He offers excellent hands and the ability to grab jump balls and is also a threat in traffic after the catch.

Last season with the Razorbacks, Burks caught 66 passes for 1,104 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also rushed for a score, showing a little versatility.

This would be a home run by Poles, and filling holes over the rest of the draft now looks a whole lot more feasible.
