The Bears are not done in the second round, as Pace trades up once again. This time, he does so with the defending champs. Pace executes a deal to get right back up into the last pick of the second round, a pick owned by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Chicago sends Tampa Bay its third rounder, pick number 83, along with a fifth-round pick and sixth-round selection. In total, Pace gives up three picks to select one of the draft’s biggest playmakers.
North Carolina’s Dyami Brown could be labeled a one-trick pony if you only looked at one stat. Over the past two seasons, Brown averaged over 20 yards per reception. Now, that’s a number that would typically beg the question: how many receptions did he account for? Normally, you’d expect a large number like that from a guy who touches the ball only on occasion.
However, Brown caught 106 passes over the past two seasons — for 2,133 yards and 20 total touchdowns. This guy is lightning fast, but he’s also quick. His ability to get behind a defense is top-notch. Brown can track a ball over his shoulder with the best of him. Adding him to a receiving room with Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney gives this Bears offense some potent scoring threats on any given down.
