The Chicago Bears could trade back with the Dallas Cowboys

The Trade

If the Bears use the 48th selection wisely, they may come away with a starting cornerback or another wide receiver. They could also possibly go after a guard, too. With that in mind, here’s how the Bears spend their picks from Dallas.

The Picks

Round 2, Pick 56: WR Christian Watson, North Dakota State

Maybe the biggest draft riser as of late, Christian Watson presents everything you want in a true number one receiver. He has the size and strength, at 6-foot-4 and having put up 18 reps on the bench press at his pro day. But, Watson also has 4.36 speed, which is the most eye-popping part of his testing.

The biggest question when it comes to Watson is whether or not he can translate to the NFL after having dominated collegiate competition. With the way he’s looked in workouts lately, there’s no doubt he’s ready. Watson is the hardest worker in the room and a locker room leader as well. The Bears absolutely knock this pick out of the park.

Round 3, Pick 88: T Max Mitchell, Louisiana

This is where the Bears round out their offensive line, by drafting Louisiana tackle Max Mitchell to come in and give Larry Borom a run for the other tackle spot. Mitchell is a big man, standing 6-foot-6 and weighing nearly 310 pounds. He possesses great athleticism for the position and has a strong, durable frame.

Round 6, Pick 193: S JT Woods, Baylor

The last pick from Dallas goes to the secondary, as the Bears snag Baylor safety JT Woods. He is one of the best athletes in the draft at the safety position, running a 4.36 and having a vertical jump of nearly 40 inches. At 6-foot-2, Woods has great size for the safety position and could end up being a real steal here.
