Are the Chicago Bears preparing to trade back?

NCAA Football: Virginia Tech at Notre Dame Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Last week we asked you guys to tell us what you want the Chicago Bears to do with the third overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Your first choice was for them to take LSU safety, Jamal Adams, but number two was for them to trade back.

Trading back is often easier said than done, and after looking over the draft order, the latest news and rumors, and the prospects lists, I only see a few options the Bears have in moving back.

In the latest edition of my T Formation Conversation Podcast (Subscribe now on iTunes for free!), I talk about a few trade down scenarios for the Bears, and I also go over the handful of prospects that the Bears have privately met with. It’s this private meeting list that has me thinking general manager Ryan Pace will explore all options to move back in the draft.

If the above embedded audio isn’t working, here’s a tweet with the audio in it.

Since I recorded my show, I came across some info about the Bears possibly having met with Clemson’s Deshaun Watson. He’s a guy that could be in play at three or in a trade back. It’ll all depend how everyone’s boards stack up.

I don’t know about you guys, but I can not wait until the draft.
