News broke late Friday afternoon that the Chicago Bears’ top NFL Draft Pick is officially on the move. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Bears are sending the No. 1 overall pick from this year’s draft to Carolina in exchange for DJ Moore and four draft picks.
The four draft picks that Chicago will receive include the No. 9 overall pick in this year’s draft, which is just eight spots below the No. 1 overall slot that it’s sending to Carolina.
Chicago will also receive a pick in the late second round of this year’s NFL Draft, as well as a first-round pick in next year’s draft and a second-round pick in the 2025 draft.
Moore will provide a critical, immediate improvement for Chicago’s passing game in 2023. Cole Kmet led the Bears’ abysmal pass-catchers last season with 544 yards.
Moore has posted 750 receiving yards in each of his five seasons in the NFL, including back-to-back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons from 2019-21.
