The Chicago Bears are believers in the upside of quarterback Justin Fields and that is why there is a very strong chance the organization looks to instead move their top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
This past season, the Chicago Bears finished with their worst record since going 1-13 in 1969. On their path to eventually finishing 3-14, the team traded away key players and seemed to punt on 2022-2023 weeks before it ever came to a close. Yet, despite how abysmal the team was, there is a reason for hope.
In the NFL, if you don’t have a worthwhile quarterback, your chance of success is very limited. However, in this season 2021 first-round pick Justin Fields took some nice development steps forward. Before suffering an injury at the tail end of the season, Fields and the offense were a formidable group that broke several Bears rushing records.
Furthermore, while the young QB displayed his running talents all season, he also showed notable growth as a passer. And that is why the team is not looking to make a change despite a rich class of QBs in this year’s draft, and owning the top overall pick.
