The Chicago Bears could trade back with the Kansas City Chiefs

This trade scenario might be the best overall value of them all, as the Bears take advantage of a team that looks ready to make another run at a Super Bowl. The Kansas City Chiefs could find themselves in a position, in the second round, where they see a player falling that could drastically help them in their quest for another title.

Kansas City is a team that has to be feeling the pressure, in a division where the other three teams got significantly better and they just lost a top-5 wide receiver in Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs have plenty of draft capital thanks to that trade, and if they see a guy falling to pick 48 that they have to have, the Bears should take full advantage.

The Bears would deal their No. 48 selection in exchange for picks coming at No. 62, No. 103 and No. 252. We won’t highlight all the possible players available for those three picks, but let’s go back a second and look at who the Chiefs could be targeting.

At pick 48, the Chiefs very well could be looking at a guy like Christian Watson to pair with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Maybe they like Oklahoma linebacker Brian Asamoah who is sitting there. Maybe, a guy like George Pickens is still available as well.

At pick No. 62 for the Bears, they could be looking at selecting guys like South Alabama wide receiver Jalen Tolbert, Clemson wide receiver Justyn Ross, Illinois safety Kerby Joseph, Georgia tackle Jamaree Salyer, or Memphis guard Dylan Parham.
