With the Chicago Bears losing on Sunday and the Denver Broncos winning, the Bears have moved up the 2023 NFL draft order to second overall. That means it’s time for another mock draft with an intriguing trade option.
The Houston Texans own the top pick in the 2023 draft and are expected to get their quarterback of the future, likely Bryce Young (Alabama). But what if they want a generational EDGE rusher like Will Anderson Jr., too?
In this scenario, the Texans trade the 13th overall pick, a second and third-rounder, and next year’s first and third-round picks to the Bears for the No. 2 overall.
A tad far-fetched? Maybe. But the Texans would come out of this draft with two blue-chip prospects at the game’s most important positions and still have seven picks this year, plus the Cleveland Browns’ first-round pick next year.
What would the Bears do with this bounty of draft selections? Let’s get into it.
