The Chicago Bears are going to take Caleb Williams first overall, but there are plenty of questions about what the team will do with the ninth overall pick. Of course, how the board falls will have a huge impact on what the team does. 

What are the best potential outcomes for the Bears on draft night?

The top players in this draft are the top three wide receivers; Marvin Harrison Jr., Malik Nabers, and Rome Odunze. Considering there are four quarterbacks expected to go high, at least one of these players is going to be available with the seventh pick in the draft.

The Bears pick ninth, so while they cannot be guaranteed to get one, they could be right within striking distance to do it. This would be a win. 

The Bears need to build up a supporting cast around Caleb Williams, and any of these receivers would be a massive addition to D.J. Moore and Keenan Allen, who are already on the roster. In most years any of these receivers would be the top in their class. This year, the Bears get to add one by moving up just a couple of slots. This is a win, even if it does mean losing some draft equity, which may have to come from next year. 

For someone like the Titans or Falcons, they are only moving back one or two spots but picking up strong compensation. If the Bears land any of the top receivers, it will be hard to find the negative aspects of it.
