The Chicago Bears were one of the busiest teams in the 2024 NFL draft during the top ten picks, but now, things may get a bit more quiet. As it stands, the Bears have one pick on day two, and they may be more likely to trade down and gain more picks later in the draft than trade up and add more assets. 

If they do stay 75, who are three players the team must consider?

3. Bralen Trice, Edge, Washington 

The Chicago Bears are going to need to look to defense now. They have built up their offense as well as you possibly can, with Keenan Allen, Gerald Everett, D’Andre Swift, and now Rome Odunze helping out Caleb Williams during his rookie season. 

At edge rusher, they obviously love Montez Sweat. The team also has DeMarcus Walker, who has talent, but he is a rotational player. Jacob Martin is a journeyman who typically will bounce around on the bottom of rosters. Lastly, there is Dominique Robinson, who got worse after his rookie year, and he was a project as a rookie. 

The team could add some edge help. Bralen Trice is a great fit. He is not going to wow you with sacks, but he would fit right into the rotation. Trice has playing strength and can hold up against the run. 

The Bears already drafted one Washington player, why not add to the defense from the same University? The fit makes sense, and the player should be available at the 75th overall pick. They should make this happen.
