The Chicago Bears could trade back with the New England Patriots

Lastly, it’s the mother of all trade scenarios. The New England Patriots are never afraid to make a move, and Bill Belichick is a man convicted when he finds someone he has to have. He is not shy when it comes to making trades, and if there’s a guy he likes at pick 39, the Bears could get a haul in return.

In this scenario, the Bears trade that No. 39 selection in exchange for picks 54, 85 and 127. That’s a late-second rounder, a third-rounder, and a fourth-rounder the Bears would get back — tremendous value.

At No. 54 overall, the Bears could be looking at taking any aforementioned player who might have been there at 47 or 48. Other guys who might be available include Auburn cornerback Roger McCreary, Alabama linebacker Christian Harris, USC edge rusher Drake Jackson, Arizona State tackle Kellen Diesch, or Tulsa tackle Tyler Smith.

Later on, at pick 85, the Bears could come away with an absolute steal with someone like Cincinnati wide receiver Alec Pierce, among other guys.

That fourth-round pick is unfamiliar territory for Bears fans, as they don’t have one currently. At No. 127, the Bears could be looking at a multitude of players, but the best ones include cornerbacks Cordale Flott (LSU) and Zyon McCollum (Sam Houston State), Kentucky offensive weapon Wan’Dale Robinson or Oklahoma guard Marquis Hayes.
