What would an ideal Round 3 look like for the Chicago Bears? We look at the best case scenarios.

This is what all Chicago Bears fans have been wondering lately. What will the team do with their first selection in the 2019 NFL Draft? Fans will have to wait until Day 2 to find out, as Ryan Pace won’t be making his first pick until no. 87 overall, late in the third round.

Of course, the Bears could always trade up into the second. With a projected 10 picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, it’s a strong possibility. But, let’s say the Bears stay put and make their first pick in the third round. What do they do?

A large amount of fans have been clamoring for the team to add a third running back to the mix. With Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis on the squad as the no. 1 and no. 2 backs at the moment, adding another to the depth chart is a good possibility.

At the same time, the team could use an edge rusher. Although Chicago brought Aaron Lynch back recently as their third pass rusher, getting another man into the rotation and under contract for the future would be filling a need down the line.

There is always the likelihood that Pace opts to go with the best player on the board, which I strongly believe he will do, regardless of position. Chicago’s starters are set on offense and defense. They have nothing to worry about in that respect. As a fan, it feels good to say that.

Looking at the situation with the “best player available” mentality, what would a perfect third round look like? Let’s look at a few players who would be optimal for Pace and company, should they be there in the third.
