The Chicago Bears cannot pass on this player with the ninth pick

Regardless of whether the Chicago Bears keep Justin Fields or draft a new Quarterback, there's one player in the draft that Ryan Poles should instantly select if he's still available when the Bears go back on the clock in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Elmer Fudd is famous for saying, "It's rabbit season." No disrespect to one of the most famous Looney Tunes of all time, but for Chicago Bears fans, it's NFL Draft season.

During all-too-common daydreams during the bleak Midwest winter, what the Chicago Bears are going to do to improve this football team by August never wanders far from the forefront of my mind.

The 2024 NFL Draft has a good chance of being an extremely pivotal event in the history of the Chicago Bears

I don't have a desire to delve deep into what the Chicago Bears are going to do at first overall right now. No matter what you believe in, the conversation is toxic and repetitive at this point. I trust Ryan Poles; I leave the conversation at that.

Perhaps that's why I think the second top-ten pick in Ryan Poles' quiver is being overlooked in its vital nature to the speed at which the Chicago Bears can realize their potential. No matter who lines up under center, the Chicago Bears need to improve in every phase if they want to contend next season.
