The Chicago Bears are without a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. To make things worse, they do not have a third or fourth-rounder either. This mock draft proves that Ryan Pace must trade back when on the clock in April.
With the Chicago Bears looking to find some additional help and depth at certain positions, Ryan Pace should highly consider trading back from either the 43rd or 50th overall spots. With two, second-round picks, Pace could potentially trade up into the bottom of the first. The only reason to even consider doing this would be for an offensive tackle or guard you believe is an instant starter and upgrade.
As the mock draft simulator kept chugging along, I watched patiently as names went off the board. My favorite draft target at pick No. 43 is Jalen Reagor. As soon as I saw him taken at pick No. 34, I decided I would hold out hope that a player or two I like would be sitting there at the 43rd selection. Trading up made little sense and the mock draft carried on.
Before I get into the picks and the trades, it should be known that I am not the type of person who would ever draft for need. That’s right, I absolutely hate drafting for need. If you have Aaron Rodgers under center, you can bypass quarterback fairly easily. That said, you can never have too much talent on your roster. The players either make an impact for your team, or you are able to trade them to another team and find a way to replace him.
Most people I talk to say the Chicago Bears do not need to draft a wide receiver early. Well, good for your opinion, but finding a game-changing receiver is something that could help set this offense apart from many others in the league. Remember the year the team had both Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey playing well? Now let us think about Allen Robinson and a receiver opposite of him that compliments his game. I want an offensive game-changer like yesterday.
Alright, let us take a look at how this mock draft went down and how Ryan Pace should be taking notes. I might have to tag a few players and ask them to text the mock to Pace on my behalf.
