The number one overall pick in the NFL Draft is extremely coveted by many.
This is an opportunity for a franchise to find a prospect that can impact their organization for years.
When looking at the last ten NFL Drafts, there have been six quarterbacks that have been taken first overall.
The NFL continues to be a quarterback-dominant league.
If a team doesn’t have a strong starter, it’s difficult for their team to find great success, especially in the postseason.
Ahead of April’s draft, the Chicago Bears currently hold the first overall pick.
While some have suggested that the Bears will be taking a quarterback, their general manager has other ideas.
Regarding this pick, Ryan Poles told NFL insider Peter King: “I know I can get a ’24 one and a ’25 one.”

If the Bears do trade this pick, Poles believes that he will get a haul in return.
After the combine, many have pointed to C.J. Stroud, Bryce Young, and Anthony Richardson as the top three quarterbacks.
With many quarterback-needy teams out there, they might be aggressive in their hunt to trade up in this year’s draft.
This could be great news for the Bears, who are seemingly excited to move forward with Justin Fields as their franchise quarterback.
There are nearly two months until the NFL Draft, and a lot can happen in that time.
With pro days right around the corner, these three top quarterbacks can either help or hurt their draft stock depending on their performances.
The better they perform, the higher the Bears’ asking price for the number one pick gets.NEXT: Louis Riddick Reveals What He Would Do With Bears' #1 Pick
