Here are three possible trade up targets for the Chicago Bears in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The 2020 NFL Draft is a few short weeks away and most of the free agency excitement is in our rearview mirror now.

The Chicago Bears have made some sizeable moves so far this offseason, the most notable transactions include taking on Nick Foles‘ contract in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the signing of Robert Quinn to a five-year, $70 million contract. Additionally, they’ve brought back linebacker Danny Trevathan on a three-year deal and signed veteran tight end Jimmy Graham to a two-year deal.

In terms of 2020 NFL Draft capital, the Chicago Bears are somewhat limited this year and will have to get creative with what they have which may include a trade back scenario. While I don’t anticipate them making too many moves, here are three potential trade-up targets the Chicago Bears could pursue.

Despite the Graham signing and their plethora of tight ends, the Chicago Bears currently have on their roster, they still need to improve at the position. Graham is getting older, and the players behind him have not played a lot of meaningful snaps.

While the tight end class isn’t as strong as in years past, there are still a few players at the top of the groups’ hierarchy that may warrant a trade up. And although Moss isn’t the most fluid athlete, he displays a good catch radius and sure hands.

Moss’s draft range looks to be anywhere from rounds two-four. The Chicago Bears do not possess a third or fourth-round pick so a trade back scenario could be in play here. However, Chicago could ship a day three pick and another pick in 2021 should they want to trade up into that range to snag Moss.
