With the Chicago Bears not owning a pick in the first two rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft, we look at some prospects worth trading up for.

Now just three and a half weeks away from the 2019 NFL Draft, it’s getting down to the wire for general managers and head coaches to finish evaluating the talent. For the Chicago Bears and Ryan Pace, this year will require a different extent of homework on the draft class.

By now, most fans know the Bears do not own a selection within the first two rounds of the draft. The first-round pick was one of the assets sent to the Oakland Raiders as part of the Khalil Mack trade last fall. As for the second-rounder, that pick allowed Pace to move up and draft Anthony Miller in last year’s draft.

One of the things fans love to watch, when it comes to the draft, is what Pace will do in the middle rounds. He’s nailed some picks in the past with guys like Tarik Cohen and Eddie Jackson in the fourth and even former Bears running back Jordan Howard in the fifth.

Pace has been strong in those mid rounds since joining the Bears, but he’s also proven to be a risk taker. Nothing has stopped Pace from executing trades when he is convinced it makes his team better. There’s no better example than the previously mentioned deals, as well as the draft-day trade to go up and get Mitchell Trubisky in 2017.

If Pace sees one of his highest-graded players fall into the second round, whether it’s early or later on within the round, there is a good chance
