Recent CBS 2023 NFL mock draft is embarrassment for the Chicago Bears
The 2023 offseason has not even officially started yet, but mock draft season has been upon us for quite some time. Chicago Bears fans need to get used to the idea that we will hear (and we here at Bear Goggles On will write) about the 2023 NFL Draft quite often from now until May. That said, it’s important to be as accurate as possible when providing our thoughts, ideas and possible scenarios regarding the Bears and first-overall pick.
In a recent mock draft by CBS, the analyst, Ryan Wilson did the Chicago Bears dirty. The trade that he proposes is honestly an embarrassment should that be the return that Ryan Poles is able to receive. I’ll get into the trade in a few minutes, but this trade is almost the opposite of what Bears fans have been putting out there on social media. Most of what Bears fans have been discussing regarding the return value for the first-overall pick has been ridiculous as well. Multiple players with multiple picks in return for the first-overall pick is just not realistic.
When we look at the return value for the first-overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the Jimmy Johnson trade draft value chart is the most widely accepted. I recently went through some trade scenarios that were realistic starting points for Ryan Poles should you want to read them. Apparently, CBS is unaware of this draft value chart, because the return that they receive in this mock is not even close to enough.
