Are the Chicago Bears Planning to Trade Up?
General Manager Phil Emery hasn’t ruled out the possibility of the Chicago Bears targeting a team and pulling off a deal to move up in the draft. This is one of the most interesting possibilities of the draft for the Bears as I believe they would want to trade u and select Michael Floyd . We saw it last year with the Atlanta Falcons when they jumped all the way up to draft Julio Jones to pair with Roddy White, and I think the Bears could be in the position to do the same.
As much as people want to talk about how “old” the Bears are defensively, I don’t believe it’s necessary to jump the gun and automatically draft defense. I would say Julius Peppers and Brian Urlacher have at least 2 more good “pro-bowl” quality years left, and will allow the Bears to hold off restocking their once feared defense. It’s their offense that has cost them many a games and as a fan – I’m very excited at the possibilities of seeing a good, solid, football team take the field on Sunday’s this fall.
So who are the Bears looking to trade with? It could be the Miami Dolphins. I believe they want Ryan Tannehill, but I think he would be available later in the first round. He’s the third best QB coming out of the draft this year, and I think it would be a stretch to take him in the top 10, which is why I think they could trade down, add picks later in the draft and next year, and start building a solid foundation. If Miami isn’t the possibility, my next best guess is the Kansas City Chiefs at 11. I would assume this would only go down if Michael Floyd is still on the clock, but I’m only assuming Floyd is their target. The Bears have several needs in this draft and can go a million different ways, so it’s going to be very interesting to see what’s going to happen in 48 hours. I don’t know about you- but I’m excited.
