The latest comp pick projection is not as good as we hoped for the Bears

At one point last offseason it was looking like the Chicago Bears would be in line for four or five compensatory draft picks following the free agency period, but things have changed according to Over The Cap.

Right now the Bears are projected to have two sixth-round comp picks, one for Chase Daniel and one for Nick Williams, who both signed with the Lions.

The comps for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Kevin Pierre-Louis, and Cornelius Lucas are no longer on the table.

These are still just projections, and while OTC usually nails them, there are some new variables that had to be factored into their equations, so things could obviously change.

Including the two comp picks projected, as of right now the Bears are slated to have eight picks in the the 2021 NFL Draft.

They have their own picks in the first, second, third, fifth, and sixth round, plus the two sixth round comp picks, and a seventh from the Adam Shaheen trade by way of the Falcons via the Dolphins.

The specific draft order from the third-round on will be determined once all the compensatory picks are official, and that will take place in the next two months.
