Deadline: Minnesota vikings Had a Good Reason to Walk Away from L’Jarius Sneed Trade…..

A first-round pick in the NFL draft can quite literally change the trajectory of a team that uses it wisely. On the other hand, having multiple first-round picks gives teams a distinct advantage of strengthening their roster in a special way.

There are three NFL teams with multiple first-round picks: the Chicago Bears, Arizona Cardinals, and Minnesota Vikings. Two teams are quarterback-needy, and one has a unique opportunity to trade down in the draft. However, what is the best scenario for each team with multiple first-round picks in the 2024 NFL Draft?

Caleb Williams is likely a Chicago Bear. He is a no-brainer pick at one and is arguably one of the best quarterback prospects to come out of the draft this decade. Caleb’s ability to play in structure and make unbelievable plays speaks for itself. The Bears have been waiting for a savior at quarterback, and they might finally get one with Williams. There are no guarantees in the NFL, but Williams is coming into arguably the best situation for a rookie quarterback. With formidable weapons like D.J. Moore, Keenan Allen, and D’Andre Swift, Williams is poised for a promising debut season in Chicago.

With their second pick in the first round, the Bears have options. With only four picks in the 2024 NFL Draft, many people believe the Bears should trade back from nine and acquire more draft capital. While it makes sense at first glance, the reality is the Bears have a ton of draft capital next year. If the Bears trade back from nine, they might lose out on having the ability to draft a blue-chip prospect.

Head Coach Matt Eberflus knows this and was asked what the Bears plan was with the ninth pick. He stated, “We’re gonna get a blue player there, for sure.” So, who is that blue-chip prospect Eberflus is talking about? Rome Odunze is a likely candidate. Odunze could become yet another offensive weapon for the Bears. His potential as an immediate impact player and the opportunity to learn from veterans like Moore and Allen make him an enticing prospect. Adding Odzune will give Chicago arguably the best wide receiver trio and another weapon for Caleb Williams to work with.
