Even with their limited draft capital, never count Ryan Pace and the Chicago Bears out of a draft day trade.

With the current issues on this Chicago Bears roster, fans are going to want to pay close attention to the 2020 Reese’s Senior Bowl this Saturday. This year’s rosters might be some of the most talent-filled in recent memory.

The country’s most prolific seniors have been busy practicing and interviewing all week long in preparation to put their talents on display during the big game Saturday afternoon, and you better believe Chicago’s brass is keeping a close eye on some guys in particular.

With the quarterback position in question, and general manager Ryan Pace’s commitment to Mitchell Trubisky (at least for 2020), the majority of fans are wondering whether or not the team will take a quarterback in this year’s draft.

Well, looking at just the seniors alone, Pace will have plenty to choose from. You’ll see guys like Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts and Colorado’s Steven Montez, who have many people split. There’s also Justin Herbert out of Oregon, who will go fairly high, most assume. We’ll get to a couple others later on.

Other areas of interest for the Bears and their fans have to include offensive line and tight end — and boy, are there some tantalizing prospects at those positions.

Pace is going into this offseason with just a few draft picks and not a ton of money, which means he’ll have to use his assets wisely. But, with his history as a general manager, don’t ever assume he’s not willing to make a deal — especially when the talent is this good.

Before we dive into a few players to watch, here’s a little nugget for you:
