The Chicago Bears may only have four picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, but they own all the power.

With the no. 1 pick that will ultimately end up being USC quarterback Caleb Williams, along with the no. 9 selection, the Bears are ready to bring home quite the haul.

But, after Round 1, they only have picks in the third and fourth rounds. What happens if Ryan Poles wants to trade up into Round 2? Sacrificing future capital would be part of the equation, surely. But, which players might be worth it? Let's identify just a few.

Keon Coleman, WR, Florida State

The Bears are set at their top two wide receivers with D.J. Moore and Keenan Allen, but the rest of their room is lacking. If Keon Coleman is still there early in the second round, he'd be well worth spending on. Coleman is one of those alpha types, able to dominate on the outside between his leaping ability and overall size.

At 6-foot-3, 213 pounds, Coleman looks every bit of your prototypical outside wideout. He has tremendous ball skills and excellent hands. He's not going to beat you with a variety of routes, but he simply out-mans the opposition.

Zach Frazier, C, West Virginia

Between Coleman Shelton and Ryan Bates, the Bears should be fine at center for now. But, a long-term solution could be West Virginia's Zach Frazier. Widely viewed as the draft's no. 2 overall center behind Jackson Powers-Johnson, Frazier has phenomenal core strength and holds his own against some of the more powerful defenders.

Frazier is a finisher at his core. He is going to play to the whistle, and more often than not, he'll end up the victor. He's one of those phone booth types. Frazier is going to punish you in the run game and hold his own in pass protection.
