The Chicago Bears could trade back with the Washington Commanders

This first deal is a bit mild compared to what the Bears could end up getting for their No. 39 overall selection, but the negotiations probably start here. Remember, last year the Bears traded up to the 39th pick for Teven Jenkins. For Jenkins, the Bears gave up No. 52, No. 83 and No. 204 in exchange for No. 39 and No. 151.

Here, we see the Bears dealing away only the No. 39 pick in exchange for three picks from the Washington Commanders. Washington sends Chicago their picks at No. 47, No. 113 and No. 189 overall.

Moving back just eight spots and snagging a couple of extra picks is a huge win, here. Now, Bears fans would probably prefer to end up with two picks in the top-100 in exchange for the No. 39 selection. But, this is still a fairly good haul.

In this instance, the Bears now have back-to-back picks in the second round at picks 47 and 48.

With those two picks, the Bears could end up with two of the following: North Dakota State wide receiver Christian Watson, Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson, Washington State offensive tackle Abraham Lucas, Wisconsin linebacker Leo Chenal or Kentucky tackle Darian Kinnard.
