*Trade: The Chicago Bears trade 2, 4  to the New England Patriots for 2 . This is pretty much the exact trade from last season, but the picks are later in each round and the Patriots can expect the Bears 2nd round pick to be around the same spot.
2 RB Darrell Henderson [Memphis] 5'8" 208lbs, 4.49 , 22 reps, 33.5", vert, 10'1" broad
Henderson appears to be the ideal back for the Bears. He is an explosive runner, he had 1909 yards with 8.9 YPC in 2018, in 2017 he also averaged 8.9 YPC. He scored 36 TDs in 3 seasons at Memphis. He has the homerun ability that the Bears clearly want, he had runs of 35, 39, 43, 47, 54, 60, 61, 61, 78, and 82. He has produced big plays in the passing game as well. In 2018, he had 19 catches for 295 yards, 15.5 YPC, and 3 TDs, including catches of 20, 26, 43, 62, and 71. In 2017 he averaged almost 10 yards per catch on 24 catches. When it comes to explosive plays Henderson is one of the most productive players in the draft. If the Bears want to get more explosive and generate more big plays from the RB spot then Henderson should be the target. It is not worth risking a lesser offensive jump in 2019, when the Bears are very much going to be competing, to hold onto a 2020 pick.
*Trade: The Chicago Bears trade 3  to the Los Angeles Rams for 3 and 4 . The Bears can move down and recoup their 4th round pick and ensure that they add a volume of picks and developmental players at key spots.
3 TE Josh Oliver [San Jose St] 6'5" 249lbs, 4.63, 22 reps, 34", 9'9 broad
The lack of a 2nd passing game weapon at TE is holding the offense back and when Burton was out it was downright crippling. The Bears can believe that Shaheen will develop, but they cannot rely on that based on what we have seen and his injury history. The Bears need a player who is athletic enough for defense to account for in the passing game and that can threaten the defense enough that they actually cover him. Oliver has the size to compete at the inline TE and the athletic ability to fill in the flex position. He gives the Bears a player who based on athletic ability can threaten the seam and vertically, which will open up things underneath. In 2018, Oliver averages 12.7 YPC and showed that he can generate big plays and YAC, something Shaheen just has not shown that he can do. Best case scenario is that Oliver and Shaheen both play well and perhaps you can save 8 million on the future on Bennett.
4 CB Isaiah Johnson [Houston] 6'2" 208lbs, 4.4 , 36.5" vert, 11'1" broad
Johnson has elite physical tools, but some serious rough edges as a CB after converting from WR in college. The Bears do not need Johnson in 2019, knock on wood, he can hopefully get an entire year with Pagano and Townsend before being entered into the competition in 2020 to replace Prince. At a minimum he should immediately step on to special teams and give the Bears a big athletic gunnner to replace Bellamy.
*Trade: The Chicago Bears trade RB Jordan Howard to the Philadelphia Eagles for 5. With Henderson and Davis on board I do not think that the Bears need to keep Howard any longer. I think a 5th round pick is solid compensation for him.
5 S Darius West [Kentucky] 5'11" 209lbs, 4.39 , 19 reps, 33.5" vert, 9'5" broad
The Bears seem set at safety in 2019, but they need help on special teams and they need to start developing someone for 2020. HHCD is a free agent an unlikely to fit into the Bears budget. Bush will be a free agent and probably looking to start somewhere. The Bears can add West who has a nice athletic, size and play style profile for the SS spot. West had 47 tackles, 3 INTs, and a FF last season, which is pretty good ball production for a SS. He has experience close to the line of scrimmage and has the tools for the Bears to develop. In 2019 West can be a core special teamer, before competing to start in 2020.
5 WR Mecole Hardman [Georgia] 5'10" 187lbs, 4.33 , 17 reps, 36.5" vert, 9'11" broad
The Bears were clearly on a mission to add speed to the offense with Patterson and Hall, but neither of them is more than a gimmick guy or a backup WR. The Bears need to look at developing a player that can be more on offense that has elite speed. The offense struggled vertically in 2018 and some of that is on the QB, but the Bears need to threaten more down the field. Hardman has truly elite speed and can be developed as a sub package guy in 2019 and possible long term replacement for Gabriel.
7 OG Phil Haynes [Wake Forest] 6'4" 322lbs, 33.5" arms, 5.2 , 33 reps, 31" vert, 9'2" broad
The Bears need a starting RG in 2020 as Long's deal is really just a one year deal. The Bears also need to start getting some people who can move people in the power run game, which they struggled at last season. Haynes is a big, long armed, people mover. He is a physically imposing player that thrives in the power run game and in putting people on their backs. Haynes gets a year with Heistand to develop and compete with Coward at RG in 2020.
7 K Matt Gay [Utah] 6' 230lbs.
I know the Bears could wait to UDFA to add a kicker, but my concern is that opens you up to 32 other teams bidding on and recruiting your guy. Gay is the guy I think the Bears should target. He has a big leg, has been accurate in his career, and has kicked in the weather in Utah. He was 84% last season on his FG attempts, with a long of 55. he was 3/5 on 50+ yard FG attempts and 7/10 on 40+ yard attempts and missed 0 kicks from inside of 40 yards. Gay can come in and compete with Redford Jones, the winner is the kicker and the loser goes to the PR squad in case the winner struggles and needs to be replaced.
