The Chicago Bears could trade back with the Houston Texans in Round 2

Maybe, in the end, the Houston Texans do indeed want to add another quarterback to the room with Mills. Let’s say they decide to go with a running back like Kenneth Walker or Breece Hall with their first pick in the second round, coming at no. 37. From there, the Texans have to feel great about how their draft has started. If there’s one of the top five quarterbacks sitting on the board at no. 48, we could see quite the deal go down.

In this trade, the Bears initially move back 20 spots and completely out of the second round, meaning they would have to make that no. 39 selection count. However, the Texans would give up both of their third-rounders and the second pick in the fourth round. All in all, the Bears will pick five times in the first 107 selections of the draft — and that’s pretty good, comparatively speaking.

Chicago would then pick at 39, 68, 71, 80, and 107. Most Bears fans would be elated by that type of draft haul, and then be able to pick twice in the fifth round and once more in the sixth.

If Poles could strike a trade like the one above, the value might end up being tremendous. Just think about giving up pick no. 48 in exchange for wide receiver John Metchie III, guard Dylan Parham, and cornerback Zyon McCollum. It’s pretty safe to say that the majority of Bears fans would do that deal in a heartbeat.

So, what will Poles be up to tonight? Chances are, he could take advantage of a Round 2 run on quarterbacks.
