The Commanders trade up to no. 1 and pair Caleb Williams with Kingsbury once again.

This first trade comes well ahead of the draft, and the Bears could choose to make yet another huge move prior to free agency kicking off, thus cementing their plans around the quarterback position going forward.

One other recent rumor has the Las Vegas Raiders wanting to move up for a quarterback, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. If that desire becomes so strong for Vegas, that they're willing to offer a package like this one, then the Bears might have to move down once again.

In this deal, the Bears move down to the no. 13 pick while also netting a second rounder and fourth rounder this year. The Raiders also trade their first and second-round picks next year, in addition to last year's first round pick, defensive lineman Tyree Wilson.

The Bears might have a choice between Wilson or a 2026 first-round pick, and for the sake of building this roster right here and now, Wilson makes sense. He came along slowly in his rookie year, but still has the athletic build of a total freak of nature.

Wilson comes in and can play meaningful snaps right away with Montez Sweat on the other side, but the Bears aren't done at this position just yet. Now, it's on to their first pick in the draft at no. 9 overall.
