Before the Chicago Bears enter the 2019 NFL Draft with just five picks, they could still look at a few available free agents to add depth.

As the Chicago Bears get ready for the home stretch bringing them to the 2019 NFL Draft, fans are still curious as to just what general manager Ryan Pace will do. The Bears only have five picks this year, and don’t start picking until the third round (no. 87 overall). With a small amount of draft capital, how will they choose to strategize?

The positive is obvious. Sure, the Bears only boast five picks. However, Chicago also boasts arguably the fewest holes out of any team in the NFL. The team has both the offensive and defensive starters solidified, and it’s all about depth at this point.

Over the course of free agency, Pace added a fair amount of players. It all began with former Seattle Seahawks running back Mike Davis, followed by nickel corner Buster Skrine, coming over from the New York Jets.

Add in veteran offensive lineman Ted Larson, specialist Cordarrelle Patterson and wideout Marvin Hall, and the Bears had filled both depth needs, as well as a big starting need on special teams.

Finally, Pace inked former Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to take the place of Adrian Amos. Now, the Bears seem pretty set going into the draft. But, they could still add a few more pieces before draft weekend.

There are some intriguing names still searching for a new home for various reasons. Let’s take a look some a few.
