Everyone who follows the NFL has been making their guess on what will happen during the 2023 NFL Draft.
These guesses started the day the Chicago Bears got the number one overall pick for the draft.
With the pick, the team has plenty of options on the table.
However, NFL insider Ian Rapoport has his own theory on what might happen on draft day.

While he gives several options for the Bears, he feels “all of those options are real.”
Rapoport feels if the Bears are sold on someone like Will Anderson being the caliber of Myles Garrett, they will keep their pick.
However, the defensive players in the draft have to be “franchise altering players,” for the Bears to draft someone first overall.
While drafting a defensive player first is possible, Rapoport also explains how the Bears can move back as far as the ninth overall pick.
But will a move this far back still net the Bears a solid player?
Rapoport ponders if a move like this will benefit the Bears.
While a move back to the ninth pick will net them more draft capital, they will lose out on Anderson.
However, moving back to the second overall pick gives them additional capital while keeping Anderson on the board.
With the Houston Texans needing a quarterback, trading back for their second pick wouldn’t hurt the Bears.
While Rapoport gave plenty of options for the Bears, they continue to make fans wait for what they will do with the number one pick.NEXT: 2 Surprise Teams That Could Trade With The Bears For #1 Pick
