Strap in for the last four rounds of the draft today as the Bears entered the day with five selections, one in round five and then two each in rounds six and seven.

But then Bears started their day with a trade up, with division rival Vikings no less, in the fifth round, sending them a 4th rounder in 2021 to get pick 155 in order to select Trevis Gipson, a defensive end from Tulsa. The trade included no 2020 picks so the Bears will have six picks today, unless there are more trades.

According to Brad Biggs, the move included a 2021 pick, because Ryan Pace can’t help himself.

Here’s how Twitter reacted, to both the trade and the the reaction seemed to be mostly positive:
