Fields might be able to recover from a separated shoulder but torn ligaments?  I would love to see him play against a bunch of quality defenses but its not worth risking next year if he could further damage the shoulder.

But you can't treat the last 5 games as the preseason.  Its not fair to the NFL but there are ways to get some of the PS guys into games.  The recent Bear injuries are proof of that.

Bears now sitting at #2 in the draft. 

Does Detroit want to draft their future QB or are they content with Goff who will only be 29 next year?   Maybe Seattle wants to replace Geno Smith.  Is Carolina content with Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold?   Indy has ancient Matt Ryan?

Houston
Chicago
L.A. Rams (DET pick)
Denver (SEA pick)
Carolina
New Orleans (PHI pick)
Arizona
Indianapolis

There's a lot of picks between Bears #1 and the Ravens 2nd rounder.  Or is Will Anderson the 'generational' talent at DE that can't be passed up?

If that ends up being the draft order, I would trade down as far as Carolina and no lower.  And I'd be fine with Carter or Anderson when we pick.

I think I read somewhere that because of bye weeks we are worse off than we will end up in that order.  It said something like we will pick between 2 and six.

You could be right.  If we tie with other 3 win teams then we probably lose out with a tougher strength of schedule.  Got to root for the Rams and the Broncos the rest of the way out...and against the Ravens.

Oh, but that schedule was supposed to be so easy this year!   Success in the NFL isn't determined by your opponent's ability.

The big question if we end up at #5 is…

What if the top 4 are Young, Stroud, Anderson, Carter?

Who do we take at 5? Or do we look to trade down again, if there are good offers?

And Stroud may not even be in the draft. He has to declare by sometime in January and he isnt likely to do that until all NCAA post season is over.

 You can't talk in the past about subjects that belong in 2023.

With the luck of this franchise it will get the pick that is just out beyond where the QBs where needy teams would want to trade up.......

So you are saying YOU KNOW FOR FACT that Stroud is definitely in the 2023 draft? He is a Sophomore Jackie. Put the booze down dude

 So you are saying that Stroud is a Sophomore and we should hold off having a draft board until 2025?

NO Jackie. Stop imitating Oddo. How many times does someone have to explain the same thing to you?
