The Chicago Bears could also look to trade with the Indianapolis Colts

The Colts are potentially the best team outside of the quarterback position that will be in the hunt for a new signal-caller in this draft. After years of Jacoby Brissett, Philip Rivers, Carson Wentz, and Matt Ryan, it appears that the Colts may not be “a quarterback away” as so many have thought, but nonetheless, a bad year in 2022 is not totally indicative of the talent on this roster.

Similar to the Panthers, the Colts also fired their head coach earlier in the season. Despite having talented players who have struggled on the field this season, the team is looking towards somewhat of a soft rebuild. With likely a top 10 pick in the 2023 draft, the Colts may be too low to pick up one of the top two or three quarterbacks and could again trade up with the Bears to select one of these signal callers.

The Colts’ pick may end up being worse than the Panthers’. This might include the Bears trading even further back into the first round. However, similar to the Bears’ own trade to go up and get Justin Fields, Indianapolis may be willing to give up their first-round pick in 2024 as well in order to secure a quarterback now, while the team still has the talent to work with.
