Chicago Bears’ general manager Ryan Pace pulled off a couple trades today, and we wanted to recap them both in case you missed them in all the NFL Draft excitement.

His first move happened in the fifth round when he struck a deal with the division rival Minnesota Vikings.

  • The Bears received the Vikings 155th pick (5th Round) and they selected Trevis Gipson, EDGE, Tulasa.
  • The Vikings received the Bears 4th round pick in 2021.

Moving future picks isn’t ideal, but keep in mind the Bears are currently projected to have 4 compensatory picks in 2021, so Pace may feel comfortable that he could use some of those to recoup the lost fourth rounder.

Hi second trade was with the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • The Bears received the Eagles 173rd pick in the 5th round, which they used for Tulane wide receiver Darnell Mooney, and Philly’s 227th pick.
  • The Eagles received picks 196 (6th), 200 (6th), and 233 (7th).

The Bears had a need for a speedy wide out and the ammo to move up to get him. Getting a 7th back was a nice sweetener to get the deal done.

Here’s the full 2020 Chicago Bears draft class.

  • 2nd Round, Pick 11, 43rd overall (From the Raiders): Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame
  • 2nd Round, Pick 18, 50th overall: Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah
  • 5th Round, Pick 155 overall (From Minnesota): Trevis Gipson, EDGE, Tulsa
