2. DJ Moore, Chicago Bears
The Chicago Bears owning the first overall pick but not needing a quarterback was always going to be bad news for the rest of the NFC North. By trading down with the Carolina Panthers, the Bears acquired one of the best young wide receivers in the league.
DJ Moore is the WR1 the Bears have desperately needed. His arrival helps the entire offense, including the other receivers.
In five seasons with the Panthers, Moore made 364 receptions for 5,201 yards and 21 touchdowns. He had 1,100+ receiving yards in three consecutive seasons from 2019-21.
Last season, Moore caught 63 passes for 888 yards and seven touchdowns, despite playing in an offense that had four quarterbacks. Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, P.J. Walker, and Jacob Eason combined for 3,246 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions.
But Moore still posted good numbers.
Moore has three 1,000-yard seasons already, and the former first-round pick has an excellent opportunity to add a fourth in Chicago this year. The Bears' offense could take a significant step forward this season, and trading for Moore is one of the main reasons why.
