There are a handful of teams eager to trade picks with the Dallas Cowboys so they can draft a QB.

The Dallas Cowboys are sitting with a top-five pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and many believe they will try to trade down to get more picks. Quarterback is the biggest reason a team would trade up (maybe a left tackle) and with what looks like four viable quarterbacks in the first round, the Cowboys sit in a prime spot. There is still a long way to go to the draft, but we can start looking at who might be looking for a new quarterback.

I will leave some teams off like the Eagles, who have a huge contract with Carson Wentz, and just drafted Jalen Hurts in the second round. We will focus on the more obvious teams that are we know are probably in the market. This is also under the assumption the Cowboys do the right thing and keep Dak Prescott.

The Bears

One thing that seems apparent is that Mitchel Trubisky is not the answer in Chicago. Their backup, Nick Foles is not been the answer either. That leaves the Bears with a decision to trade up or stay put and hope either Zach Wilson or Trey Lance falls to them. The Bears currently sit in the thirteenth spot in the draft and moving up might be a little too rich for them.

The Bears are in a tough spot as other teams could move up and take the quarterback they covet. However, they are close enough to the top to hope one falls into their lap. Either way, the Bears will probably be in the market for a quarterback next season and the draft has some good talent if they don’t go the free-agent market.
