Chicago Bears NFL Draft

Ryan Poles confident Bears will get 2024 and 2025 first-round picks in NFL Draft trade

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles is the most popular man in the NFL right now. He’s in possession of the No. 1 overall pick while managing a roster that doesn’t need a quarterback. As a result, the Bears are expected to trade the selection to the quarterback-needy team willing to pay the highest price.

According to Poles, who spoke with NBC Sports’ Peter King at the NFL Combine, that price will likely include a first-round pick in 2024 and 2025 (not to mention a first-rounder they’ll get back in 2023).

“He said he had enough conversations about a deal to know in swapping first-round picks this year he can get “a ’24 one and a ’25 one” in a major package for a trade,” King wrote. “However far down he goes in the draft this year, Poles wants to be sure he gets a “blue player,” his term for a premier first-rounder—and there may be only six or eight of those when the Bears end up setting their board.”
