After an 0-4 start, the Chicago Bears don't have much to look forward to in their immediate future. Fans have already started looking ahead to the 2024 offseason, and that means early draft talk.

If the season ended today, Chicago would own the rights to the top two picks in the 2024 NFL Draft. That would present a world of possibilities for the Bears, of course. But, what would they opt to do with those picks?

That's a ton of power in the hands of (maybe) Ryan Poles. Do the Bears keep the picks? Do they trade them? Who do they draft?

Scenario Number 1: Keep Justin Fields, trade no. 1 pick, draft Marvin Harrison Jr.

This first scenario is probably my favorite of the three, where the Bears decide to keep Fields and give him an offensive-minded head coach in place of Matt Eberflus. The right coach, with the right system, could truly unlock Fields' potential.

Trading the number one pick would net the Bears a huge haul, as it did this year, but then they would keep the no. 2 pick in order to draft Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., who some believe is the best overall player in the draft.

Giving Fields Harrison to go with D.J. Moore would instantly create one of the league's best wide receiver tandems and allow him to fully let it fly. Again, this is assuming the Bears get the right coach and the right system in place.
