Pre-Gamin’: Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft (6:00 CT): Bears Picks, Needs, Broadcast Info, Draft Thread, More

Chicago Bears

Not only did the Chicago Bears address their biggest need by trading up and drafting a quarterback in Round 1, they did so while retaining BOTH of their Day 2 picks.

The Bears can continue to add talent in Rounds 2 and 3 with the 52nd and 83rd picks, respectively. And if they’re feeling froggy, the Bears could trade back with either (or both?) picks if the price is right. With as much talent as there is on the board, holding out for a trade-back wouldn’t be the worst idea. And because GM Ryan Pace has made moves back on Day 2 in the two previous drafts in which he has slid up the board, I wouldn’t surprise me to see him do it again.

Here’s to Day 2 of the 2021 NFL Draft!
