What will it cost the Chicago Bears to trade up with Atlanta or Detroit?

As stated earlier, the owners of the No. 4 pick and the No. 7 pick allegedly are willing to trade down in the draft, however, what’s the price tag for these top-10 picks?

We all saw the assumed price tag for Russell Wilson (even though it didn’t get accepted), but to me, you’re paying for what’s already been proven with Wilson. When you’re trading for draft picks, it gets a little dicier. Yes, the person can have a higher ceiling and all that, but it doesn’t mean anything until they go and do it. The NFL is a “what have you done for me lately?” league, so it’s really important to keep that in mind when making this type of trade.

Here comes the fun.

I decided to play the game Be Ryan Pace on the Pro Football Focus (PFF) Mock Draft Simulator, just to see what a hypothetical trade for the No. 4 and No. 7 pick could look like.


Just because the PFF Mock Draft Simulator accepted these trades do NOT make them 100% possible.
