Bears Colts trade

Here's where things get real fun. Poles makes his third trade of the first round, with the Indianapolis Colts seeing a player they cannot pass up on. Now, the Bears have two second rounders this year, courtesy of Washington and Indy.

Rome Odunze. Rome Odunze. WR. Rome Odunze. player. 46. . 9. . Washington

The Colts are able to re-sign Michael Pittman Jr. while pairing him with Washington's Rome Odunze, giving Anthony Richardson a pair of big-bodied wide receivers who he can depend on for the next few years. With Jonathan Taylor in the back field and the two big, young wideouts, Richardson is set up for a while.

. Taliese Fuaga. . Oregon State. Taliese Fuaga. 30. OT. 10. player. Taliese Fuaga

At no. 10, the New York Jets make a pick that many project them to make, going with an offensive tackle in Oregon State's Taliese Fuaga. If one of the top three wide receivers were still on the board, then maybe they re-think the pick. But, Aaron Rodgers' health is priority no. 1 going into the 2024 season, thus the Jets go with one of the next-best offensive tackle on the board.

EDGE. Dallas Turner. Dallas Turner. Alabama. Dallas Turner. . . 11. player. 60

At no. 11 overall, the Minnesota Vikings find their Danielle Hunter replacement. Most believe Hunter is as good as gone in Minnesota, therefore this team is going to need help at edge rusher. Alabama's Dallas Turner is arguably the best pass rusher in this draft, so the decision is pretty easy to make, here.
