The Chicago Bears have the first pick in the NFL draught coming up, and they are in a bit of a pickle.
Do they take one of the quarterbacks with a lot of potentials who are available with that pick, or do they keep Justin Fields at quarterback?
Many people in Chicago aren’t sold on Fields as a franchise quarterback, but NFL analyst Louis Riddick told Dan Patrick that he would rather trade the No. 1 pick and improve at other positions than use it on someone like Bryce Young and trade Fields.
Fields is a great running quarterback. This season, he ran for 1,143 yards and eight touchdowns.

The question with him, though, is how well he can throw the football.
This season, he only completed 60.4% of his passes for a meager 2,242 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also threw 11 interceptions.
There is, however, a school of thought that says Fields’ problems in this area have more to do with Chicago’s poor wide receivers and offensive line than with Fields himself.
They didn’t have a single receiver with more than 600 yards, and problems with their offensive line led to Fields getting sacked 55 times, which was the most in the NFL.
People wonder if Young’s lack of size will hold him back at the next level, even though he has great passing skills and a good feel for the game.
It will be interesting to see what the Bears decide to do because they could either get the franchise quarterback they have been looking for for a long time or make a choice they will regret for a long time.
