Giants: What a ‘historic’ deal for Chicago’s Bear No. 1 …

With the sixth overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, the New York Giants are probably out of reach for the best quarterback prospect in the class.

Some have speculated that the Giants would have to move all the way up to the No. 1 overall pick in order to select their guy if they want to land their ideal prospect at the position.

However, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rappoport, it would apparently take a “historical haul” for the Chicago Bears, who now own the first pick, to lose it. If the Giants were to move up for the number one pick, what would that historic haul look like?

What the Giants would need to trade to the Bears for a move to the No. 1 overall pick

Trading for the first-overall selection is never cheap, but the price tag seems to be elevated this year due to the talent possessed by this class’s top quarterbacks, such as USC’s Caleb Williams. The Bears are expected to take Williams with their first pick, but if they decide to forego such an opportunity, they will need some legitimate persuading.

The Bears acquired the No. 9 overall pick, a late second-round pick (No. 61), a 2024 first-round selection (this year’s No. 1 overall), a 2025 second-round pick, and wide receiver D.J. Moore in exchange for trading down from the No. 1 overall spot with the Carolina Panthers last year.

The package Chicago received for trading down last year was arguably a “historic haul,” but the price tag this offseason seems to be even higher for the No. 1 pick. Based on last year’s exchange, plus the added value of this year’s pick, a trade between the Giants and Bears for the first-overall pick in the draft would probably look something like this:

Last year, a player of starting caliber along with two firsts and two seconds sealed the deal. However, this year, the first overall pick might go to a guy who scores three firsts, three seconds, and another player of starting level.

Almost all teams hoping to jump to No. 1 will be discouraged by this high price. But general manager Joe Schoen had better be ready to give up a number of valuable assets if the Giants are serious about obtaining the first overall pick.
