The Chicago Bears are on the clock in the 2023 NFL Draft. For now.
Thanks to a crazy ending to the Week 18 slate of games, the Bears ended up with the first overall draft pick, which hasn’t happened since the Harry S. Truman administration. As far as consolation prizes for a lost season go, this one is pretty good.
So what are the Bears going to do with that first-overall pick? The consensus answer is ‘trade back.’ In this week’s mock draft, they do make a trade. This time with the Tennessee Titans.
The Titans get the first overall pick while sending the Bears the eleventh pick, a second-rounder, next year’s first-rounder, and stud defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons. This gets the Bears the extra picks they want, plus fills a tremendous position of need with one of the best young defensive linemen available.
Let’s see what the Chicago Bears do with those extra picks in this seven-round 2023 mock draft.
