Leading up to the 2020 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears should look to add draft capital. Could the Tampa Bay Buccaneers be an ideal trade partner?
The 2020 NFL Draft is going to be drastically different than years’ past for the Chicago Bears and their fans. For starters, it’s going to be much different for every NFL fan base, obviously.
The draft is still planning to take place in late April, like usual, but this time it will be very limited in terms of physical exposure due to the COVID-19 crisis. Many picks will be brought in via FaceTime to give their initial reactions and interviews — talk about a weird “new normal” for us fans.
Another reason it’s going to be different, specifically for Chicago, is due to their limited draft capital.
I am not one to over-question a general manager like Ryan Pace, but I do have my hesitancies at times. The fact that the Bears do not have a pick in the first, third or fourth rounds this year is concerning, to say the least.
We can all skip over the first-round pick debate, because in no way, shape or form are the Bears regretting the trade for Khalil Mack. Let’s put that to rest.
But, the lack of a third and fourth-round pick is going to hurt. However, Pace still has plenty of time to recoup some draft capital.
So, could the Bears and Bucs help each other out? Let’s look at a few trades which might be appealing to both squads.
