You have heard us talk about it countless times, but the Bears are still missing their long-term starter next to Eddie Jackson. After pulling off the following trade with the Cleveland Browns, the Bears find that guy.

Bears get: Pick no. 26, Pick no. 91

Browns get: Pick no. 20

Instead of picking at their current position, the Bears find a trade partner and move back a few picks while also picking up an extra third rounder in the process. In this instance, there were no quarterbacks left worth grabbing at pick 20. All five first-round talents were gone, so this move made a ton of sense.

Widely looked at as probably the best safety in the draft, TCU’s Trevon Moehrig is the perfect blend of both types. He can play deep or up towards the box. His ball skills are some of the best you’ll see from any safety in the entire draft, but he’s also a physical player who can make a tackle up near the line or even behind it.

Over the past two seasons, Moehrig has come up with 20 total passes defensed and six interceptions. He’s also tallied 109 tackles, with 3.5 coming for a loss. He’s a 6-foot-2 towering specimen who truly does it all.

Drafting Moehrig at 26 would be an absolute steal for the Bears, and they would have one of the better safety duos in all of football — locked down for the coming years, too.
