NFL Rumors: Chicago Bears shopping first-round draft pick


The NFL Draft is right around the corner and that means teams are beginning to think about what they want to do when they go on the clock. For the Chicago Bears, that could mean trading away their first-round pick and moving down in the draft.

General manager Phil Emery hinted that he may make moves in the draft, but didn’t guarantee anything.

Per ESPN:

“It’s always difficult to trade down unless you’re willing to give up a lot of value, and we’re not going to do that,” Emery said. “We’re going to make sure there’s equal value. Unless we just see that that potential pick we’re getting out of the deal is going to be in a significant spot where we can make some good out of it. The depth is good, especially on offense. I’m sitting here at 14, there are going to be some really good offensive playmakers on the board.”

Chicago isn’t a lock to make a move, but given how enamored Emery is with the depth of the draft, there’s a chance that they make a move.
