The Chicago Bears could use this second Anthony Miller trade to their benefit

One team which has navigated their way around the draft better than just about any other team is the Miami Dolphins, who currently have two picks in the first and second rounds. If Miami wanted a third selection in the first round while also adding another receiver to go with Will Fuller and DeVante Parker, this trade makes some sense.

The Bears would give up pick no. 20 overall along with Miller. In return, Chicago would get an early second rounder, a mid second rounder and a third-round pick. At that point, they would own a trio of picks in the second round again, and two selections in the third round.

The Dolphins, meanwhile, would be able to comfortably take a running back like Travis Etienne or Najee Harris while still holding two other picks to help their young quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa.

It may sound crazy at first, but the Bears should definitely entertain the possibility of moving out of the first round, especially if they can stockpile multiple picks. Again, the time is running out for the Bears to land a top quarterback in this draft. It’s just the way the cards are falling right now, and Pace has to come up with a backup plan or two in order to fill all of the Bears’ needs.
