The Chicago Bears move back in the first round and find a new offensive tackle

First and foremost, if the Bears do indeed stick with Nick Foles for the 2021 season, they have to address the offensive line. That is priority number one. Even overworking something out with Allen Robinson, which is still immensely important, the Bears have to address the tackle position.

The Bears’ first move is to move back 10 spots with the Buffalo Bills, while also acquiring an additional third-round pick.

Bears receive: Pick 30, Pick 94

Bills receive: Pick 20

With the pick acquired from the Bills, the Bears would draft tackle Jalen Mayfield out of Michigan. Mayfield projects as a starting NFL tackle right out of the gate.

The 6-foot-5, 320-pound monster out of Michigan has only started 15 games coming out of college, but he’s proven time and time again just how talented he is. Mayfield has gone through a gauntlet of Big Ten pass rushers over the last two seasons, including the likes of Chase Young, and he’s held his own for the most part.

There is no question Mayfield will only get better as he gains more experience, but already he’s going to be a Day 1 starter the Bears can count on.
