Rich Eisen boldly proclaimed on The Rich Eisen Show that Williams is destined to wear the blue and orange jersey of Chicago. Eisen’s prediction stems from Williams’ undeniable talent and unwavering commitment to excellence. “Caleb Williams is going to be a Chicago Bear and even if Jayden Daniels looks like the second coming, it is going to be Caleb Williams,” said Eisen.

He pointed to Williams’ strong work ethic and dedication to his teammates as traits he believes will make him an invaluable asset to any NFL franchise. “The aspect that I thought was very keen analysis is him showing off he’s a good dude. He’s there for his teammates. He’s there for this. He’s talking to everybody. He’s chatting up everybody. Now, you could sit here and say it is all an act and you never know anybody anymore. But he was at the combine on that Saturday night and that was a long day and it is an early morning the next day,” further added Eisen.

One moment that further solidified Williams’ connection with the Bears was his interaction with newly signed wide receiver Keenan Allen at his Pro Day.
