Without a pick in the first or third round this year, would the Chicago Bears even entertain trading one of their second-rounders?

Before you laugh or look away, let’s get real honest with ourselves. We do remember who the general manager of the Chicago Bears is, right?

Ryan Pace is notorious for making deals, especially come draft day. He can’t get enough of them, and funny enough, some of the big ones have involved second-round picks. Just look at a couple of the notable trades Pace has pulled off.

In the 2018 NFL Draft, the Bears traded up to select Anthony Miller at pick no. 51 in the second round. Chicago sent the New England Patriots their 2019 second-round pick to go along with the 105th pick in the 2018 draft.

Then, later in 2018, it was the blockbuster deal for Khalil Mack which had fans in a joyful ruckus. In that deal, Pace managed to net an extra second-round pick which saw Chicago trade two first-round picks to Oakland along with a couple other pick exchanges.

Somehow, some way, I think Pace strikes a deal once again this year. I wouldn’t be shocked, in the least, if the Bears traded one of their second-round picks.

I understand the pushback on this. The Bears hardly have any cap room and don’t possess draft picks in two of the first three rounds. I get it. But, I also understand that Pace is a risk-taking general manager.

So, if the Bears end up dealing one of their second-round picks (and maybe more), which players or prospects would be worth it? Off the top of my head, there are three key names which come to mind.
