Packages for players using the 9th overall pick

Starting with the most unlikely to happen is the Bears using pick number 9 for a player and only three players come to mind that could work. Edge rushers Brian Burns and Josh Allen. While both have yet to have the franchise tag placed on them they will likely both be tagged by their respective teams.

The only other player the Bears could look to trade for is wideout Brandon Aiyuk. The other big problem for this plan of attack is chances are the 9th overall pick probably won't be enough to get any player and more will have to be added. The other negative is going to be the need to immediately pay them.

Trading up in the draft

The Bears could try and be like the Texans of last year when they traded back up to pick number 3 where they drafted Will Anderson Jr. The Bears could look to do the same and pair Caleb Williams and Marvin Harrison Jr. They could also look to try and move up to snag Malik Nabers or confirm that they get a guy like Rome Odunze.

The problem with trading up is moving on from assets that the Bears could use to help fill out the roster better as opposed to just one player. Adding Justin Fields to a possible trade-up could also help the Bears with just a simple use of pick 9 and him.
