It is officially draft week. We made it. The Chicago Bears and all of their new faces now enter maybe the most crucial week of the offseason. It is time for the 2022 NFL Draft.

For Ryan Poles, this is his first genuine shot at a draft where he’s calling the shots. In his first year as Bears general manager, Poles will show us just what kind of mentality he takes into an NFL Draft.

A lot of folks think Poles will stay true to his thoughts earlier in the offseason when he mentioned he’s always looking to acquire more draft capital. In order to do that, a trade back would be necessary.

The Bears, of course, do not have a first-round pick but do carry a pair of picks in the second round. The thought is, maybe Poles uses one of those picks to move back and stack additional capital.

If the Chicago Bears trade back in the 2022 NFL Draft, the possibility of landing multiple starters is certainly there.

The third and fourth rounds would both be the ideal spot to analyze when looking at a possible trade back for the Bears. With so many needs and just six picks, these two rounds could end up making or breaking the draft for Poles.

If he does trade back and acquire an additional third and/or fourth-round pick, Poles might be looking at a group of guys who could definitely come in and challenge for a starting role.

The Bears’ biggest needs, overall, consist of wide receiver, offensive line and their secondary. Depending on what Poles does early on, any one of these three positions could be addressed with a trade back.

If Poles does acquire an extra third or fourth-round pick, one of these five players would be ideal targets.
