How could trading back look for the Chicago Bears in the 2021 NFL Draft?

These were just a few examples of how the Chicago Bears can move back in the draft and walk away with different picks but still land some quality talent. If a quarterback drops far enough, I can see them moving up from 20. I would be okay if they move up into the top-10 for Justin Fields. I would also be okay if they move up to 14 (ahead of the Patriots) if it meant drafting Trey Lance or Mac Jones. I don’t see Zach Wilson or Trevor Lawrence being true possibilities.

There are a few other players worth trading up for, but honestly, moving back would be the best option for this team. Too many holes exist and the team is strapped for salary cap space. The best way to remedy that is by landing some serious talent in the upcoming draft. Here is a look back at how these trades played out.

Trade Package No. 1

  • Rashod Bateman
  • Walker Little
  • Kellen Mond
  • Jamar Johnson

Trade Package No. 2

  • Eric Stokes, CB
  • Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR
  • Robert Hainsey, OT
  • Jamie Newman, QB

Trade Package No. 3

  • Greg Newsome, II
  • Tevin Jenkins
  • Kellen Mond
  • Amon-Ra St. Brown

Trade Package No. 4

  • Rashod Bateman
  • Jalen Mayfield
  • Creed Humphrey
  • Feleipe Franks
  • Aaron Banks
