The Super Bowl is just days away now, which (sadly) means the 2022 NFL season is almost over. For fans of teams like the Chicago Bears, it means the real fun is about to begin: the 2023 offseason. It also means even more 2023 mock drafts. So, why not get one more in before the big game?
According to Bears Twitter, the best-case scenario for Chicago in the 2023 NFL Draft would be to trade back with the Houston Texans at No. 2 overall, then trade back again with the Indianapolis Colts, resulting in the Bears having the fourth overall pick.
