Welcome to Day 3 of the NFL Draft, or the day of backups, special teamers, hidden gems, and about a million references to "Tom Brady!".
The Bears spent day one by snagging receiver Kevin White, then spent day two hitting the lines on both sides, snapping up defensive lineman Eddie Goldman and offensive lineman Hroniss Grasu. Where does day three take them?
NFL.com has the Bears still with needs at safety and linebacker, so we could see a defensive draft in today's remaining three picks, or we could see the Bears try to capitalize on some late value. Maybe both.
Today the Bears pick:
- 4th Round: #7 - #106 overall
- 5th Round: #6 - #142 overall (From Jets)
- 6th Round: #7 - #183 overall
The Bears traded their fifth-round pick last year to trade up and pick Brock Vereen. They included this year's 7th-round pick in the trade of Brandon Marshall to pick up the Jets' fifth-rounder.
