The Bears finished the 2019 regular season with a win-loss record of 8-8. While this positions them in the top 20 of the 2020 NFL Draft, Chicago dealt its first-round pick to the Oakland Raiders in 2018 as part of a trade for Khalil Mack. Consequently, the Bears’ first pick in the draft is 43rd overall, which was also acquired in the Mack trade. The team also has its own selection, 50th overall, in the second round. The Bears sent their third- and fourth-round picks to Oakland and New England, respectively, but have three picks in the fifth round in addition to a sixth- and seventh-round pick.
Among other positions, Chicago needs help in the positions of tight end and quarterback. Hunter Bryant would be an ideal fit at tight end and immediately improve the Bears’ passing game. Expected to be a second-round selection, Bryant registered 52 catches for 825 yards and scored three touchdowns this past season at the University of Washington.
Following a drop in performance by second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, it wouldn’t be surprising if Chicago targeted a potential replacement in the later rounds of the draft. Options there include Jalen Hurts, Jake Fromm, and Jordan Love. The 2020 NFL Draft takes place from April 23 to 25.
