ESPN's Todd McShay thinks Bears trade back again if Jalen Carter isn't pick


by - Senior Editor -

The NFL Draft is an exciting time for football fans, and the Chicago Bears are no exception.

The Bears have a lot of needs to address in the draft, and there's been a lot of speculation about what they'll do with their first-round pick.

ESPN's draft analyst Todd McShay thinks the Bears could trade their pick if their top target Georgia defensive lineman Jalen Carter is off the board.

He believes that the Bears could entertain another trade to get more draft picks.

"If Carter isn't there, I could see Chicago entertaining a trade back for even more draft capital," McShay wrote.

McShay also thinks that if the Bears do trade down, they could be targeting defensive lineman help instead of an offensive tackle.

"It needs defensive line help, and dropping back into range for Iowa's Lukas Van Ness, Georgia's Nolan Smith or Pitt's Calijah Kancey makes sense."

In the end, it's hard to say what the Bears will do on draft day. They could stick with their original pick and take the best player available, or they could trade down to accumulate more draft capital.

Either way, the Bears have a lot of work to do to improve their roster and compete in the tough NFC North.
