So, you want the Chicago Bears to trade back and acquire more picks? We’ve got the perfect solution.
At this point, you have probably seen several 2020 mock drafts for the Chicago Bears. Most of us are hanging out at home (hopefully) and absorbing all of the NFL content we can possibly obtain, since it’s truly the only major sport with anything going on. So, what better to pass the time than draft content for the Bears?
The 2020 NFL Draft is going to happen as scheduled, thankfully. Of course, it is not going to be anywhere close to normal. The league is going to conduct the draft virtually, with 58 prospects being invited to participate from their homes. The general managers, coaches and front office personnel will be communicating via remote technology as well, as they all try to get through the COVID-19 pandemic as best they can.
It is going to be different, but that doesn’t change the fact that the show goes on. This Bears roster has a ton of talent, but also a few holes to shore up in the roster. Ryan Pace is going to have to fix those areas with limited capital in this draft, too.
Most fans know the situation — two second-round picks and not much after that. There are no picks in the first, third or fourth rounds for the Bears. So, naturally, a lot of fans would like to see Pace trade back and acquire more capital by dealing one of their second rounders.
What would an ideal trade-back scenario look like? Who could the Bears select with the extra picks? That’s what I try to tackle here, and to be perfectly honest, this might be my favorite mock draft I have completed, yet. Let’s kick it off with the Bears’ 43rd overall selection before things get fun.
