Round 2, Pick 55

As things currently stand, the Chicago Bears have two second-round picks in the 2020 NFL Draft, but they do not go on the clock again until the middle of the fifth-round. With this in mind, I think a trade down with one of those second-round selections is possible, if not likely.

In this mock draft, the Bears make a move with the Baltimore Ravens, trading down five spots and picking up a fourth-round pick for their troubles. This is the kind of deal that Pace and company absolutely should be looking to make during the 2020 NFL Draft.

Now picking at No. 55, Chicago adds Jeremy Chinn, an exciting playmaking safety out of Southern Illinois, to the mix. Chinn is a fantastic natural athlete who shows tremendous range on the back-end. He is also a physical in-the-box defender who works through traffic at a high-level and tackles well in space.

Chinn is probably best-suited as primarily an in-the-box safety at the next level, but his athleticism will give make him an intriguing player in deep zone coverage as well. Simply put, he is an extremely smart and talented defensive back who can impact the game in a variety of ways. Pairing him with Eddie Jackson at the safety position would give the Bears a potentially elite safety duo worth being excited about.
