7. The Chicago Bears should again trade future draft capital to acquire more in this year’s draft
Other teams have made a living off this concept. Worry about future draft capital when the time comes. If a team can continue trading into the future and acquiring for the present, then really, what’s wrong with trading future draft capital?
The only thing that matters is that the Bears have enough draft capital in the present. Each year, they can continue to make moves if need be, in order to acquire more.
This year, the Bears only have two picks in the first four rounds. They are without a first and third rounder. If they can trade a future third-round pick to acquire another fourth rounder and potentially a fifth-round pick in this year’s draft, they should do something along those lines.
Specifically, the Bears should do whatever they can in order to land a safety, wide receiver, cornerback and offensive lineman in the first four rounds. That means, they need two more picks in those top four rounds. They could opt to try and trade one of their more notable names, as we’ve talked about and will continue talking about.
Or, again, they could try and trade future draft capital. The point is, Chicago has to get creative and somehow acquire additional draft picks in the 2022 Draft.
