Another team that’s going to be picking inside the top-10 of the NFL Draft for at least two next two years, the Jacksonville Jaguars have some offensive line talent that should interest the Bears. Guard Andrew Norwell currently in the third year of a five-year deal signed in 2018 is just 29 years old and would provide the Bears with a solution to the left guard position with James Daniels being out.

Here’s the deal though: If the Bears do indeed trade for Norwell, they’d have to do some shuffling on the offensive line next season. Daniels is set to return in 2021 and will likely assume the role of starting left guard once again. That means Norwell would have to move to right guard, a position he hasn’t played in the NFL. A key thing about adding a guy like Norwell is that during his college career at Ohio State, he played left tackle, which serves as a bonus since the Bears could move on from Charles Leno Jr. in 2021.

The biggest obstacle that’s hindering the Bears for trading for Norwell is compensation. With the Jaguars slated to have five picks in the first three rounds in the 2021 NFL Draft, adding an extra third-round pick would be a fair price for both sides. The Bears get a starter who can play multiple positions and the Jaguars get an extra draft pick in the process to add to a team with some young pieces.
