Possible Chicago Bears trade partners with plenty to offer

Now that Bears GM Ryan Poles is done making the rounds to White Sox, Cubs, Blackhawks and Bulls games, it’s time to show what he can do on his own playing field.

That would be the draft room and on the hotline on draft day.

Poles faces real issues in this draft and without question the greatest is lack of picks, and the second biggest is the huge gap between pick No. 71 in Round 3 and the Pick No. 148 in Round 5.

The trade to move up last year for Justin Fields not only deprived the Bears of their first-round pick, but also a fourth-rounder. The second-rounder acquired for Khalil Mack makes up somewhat for the lack of a first-rounder, but that hole between No. 71 and 148 is devastating.
