The Chicago Bears are a bit of a mystery heading into the 2021 NFL Draft. Had the team been in the top five, or even 10, then Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy would obviously be targeting a quarterback — at least I think. That is the funny thing about this team. Pace does whatever he can to mask what the team is wanting to do.

Although we can make some educated guesses, one big guess is that Ryan Pace will move up at some point in the draft. The only thing is, will it be in the first round? It sounds as if the team is definitely looking into all options as rumors are swirling that the Bears are one team calling other teams about potentially moving up on Draft Day.

One team that has recently been in the rumor mill as a team willing to trade back from their spot is the Dallas Cowboys. Rumors are that Jerry Jones is infatuated with the idea of landing Kyle Pitts.

The thing is, the likelihood of Pitts falling to 10th overall is very slim. He is arguably the second-best prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft class. With some of the quarterback-hungry teams, like the Chicago Bears, I guess there is a slim chance.

We will likely see quarterbacks go with the first three picks. Atlanta could take Pitts at four. In fact, as I am using the Pro Football Focus Draft Simulator, that is exactly what happened. The Bengals, Dolphins, Lions, Panthers or Broncos could take him too though.

As soon as Pitts comes off the board, I have a feeling that Dallas will be very active on the phones to try and trade back from 10th overall. This is when Ryan Pace might decide to move up depending on who is available. Remember, there are more than just quarterbacks worth trading up for in this draft.
