There's rumor that the Chicago Bears could trade Justin Fields to the Steelers. If they do, this is a dream first-round draft scenario.

Chicago Bears selection No. 3, from Steelers: Jackson Powers-Johnson, C, Oregon

At the Senior Bowl, Jackson Powers-Johnson gave the Chicago Bears every reason in the world to draft him.

Not only do the Bears have a massive need for center, Jackson Powers-Johnson is the clear-cut No. 1 center in the draft. Between physical dominance and a high football IQ, Ryan Poles should be salivating at the thought of drafting Powers-Johnson.

Everything an NFL coach could want from a center is bundled into a human named Jackson Powers-Johnson. For a team with a massive, massive, massive hole in the interior of their offensive line, the Bears should seriously consider finding a way to draft JPJ.

It's going to take a late first-round pick or an early second-round, and for the Chicago Bears' sake, they're hoping the second round. Or, if the Steelers trade the No. 20 pick for Justin Fields, this would be the perfect spot to get him.


Imagining the double-team blocks between Jackson Powers-Johnson and Teven Jenkins is making me laugh like a little boy at my desk right now. There's no guessing on whether JPJ loves football and playing the offensive line. It takes a specific breed of person to want to bash into other 300-pound people constantly, but it appears that's what Jackson Powers-Johnson does best.
