With The First Pick

● By Chris McGlynn
Justin Fields has had his moments down the stretch and very well could be the Bears starting quarterback next season. However, Ryan Poles did not draft Fields and I believe the opportunity to reset the 'quarterback clock' by getting a promising passer on a rookie deal is difficult to pass up. Williams definitely had some rough patches in his 2023 campaign, but he has elite arm strength, great mobility and impressive touch downfield.
