Here comes Day 3 for the Chicago Bears. The team traded up for a running back in Round 3, but who is left for them to target with their Day 3 picks?

The Chicago Bears trade to move up 14 spots for David Montgomery was a classic Ryan Pace move. Fans will be slamming their remotes and angry like they were after the Mitch Trubisky trade. The thing is, the move was not a bad move. It comes with risks, but most Draft trades do.

The biggest downfall here is that the Bears only have one more mid-round pick left. They traded away their Round 5 (No. 162) and are left with only their Round 4 (No. 126) pick. Ideally, it would be nice to see Ryan Pace move back and maybe convert the Round 6 (No. 205) pick back into a Round 5 selection. Easier said than done, but we can hope.

If the Bears are only able to make selections with their current draft picks, they will have to hit in the fourth round. The thing is, with little holes to actually fill, Ryan Pace can be extremely flexible with this pick. We all knew they were going running back at some point, but they could go in many directions now in Round 4.

Do not expect any top prospects to fall into the seventh round. Even their new sixth-round pick is so far down that it too will likely be impossible to lock down an impact player. That said, could drafting a kicker actually be something Ryan Pace is considering? One of those three picks could be an impact player if the Bears go kicker.

For now, in no particular order, here are the best available players left for Day 3.
