Report: Bears would need 'crazy' deal to trade No. 1 pick

If someone is going to pry the No. 1 overall selection away from the Bears, they are going to have to pay -- and pay a lot, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Chicago would need a historic haul of draft picks and overall compensation to move off the first pick of the 2024 NFL Draft, sources say. In the words of one source, it would have to be "crazy."

That indicates the Bears, who received the pick in a mammoth trade last offseason with the Panthers, are more likely than not to make the pick and land their new franchise QB.

General manager Ryan Poles was asked in early January for his mindset on making the choice between drafting a new QB or sticking with Justin Fields.

"We are going to turn every stone to make sure that we are going to make a sound decision for our organization," Poles told reporters. "I did think Justin got better. I think he can lead this team. But at the same time, there is a unique situation."

Along with the No. 1 pick, the Bears also have the ninth selection this year, their own pick.

Before anything, though, the Bears first must do a full evaluation on all the QBs, not just Williams. UNC quarterback Drake Maye and LSU's Jayden Daniels are also in Jeremiah's top five.

Chicago will evaluate through the NFL Scouting Combine (held from Feb. 26 to March 4), reassess, go through Pro Days and then collect all the info -- not just the physical traits. Getting to know Williams and the other QBs as people will be paramount.
