UPDATE (8:19 p.m. ET): The Chicago Bears didn’t trade down in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. They surprisingly moved up and picked a quarterback.
The Bears acquired the No. 2 pick from the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night and gave up several picks, including No. 3 overall, to get it.
The Bears used the No. 2 pick to select North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. The 49ers then selected Stanford defensive end Solomon Thomas.
ORIGINAL STORY: The Tennessee Titans aren’t the only team rumored to be shopping a top-five pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
The Chicago Bears, owners of the No. 3 overall selection, could move down in the first round, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The Bears’ most glaring needs are on defense, and it’s likely that the two top defensive prospects — Texas A&M edge rusher Myles Garrett and LSU safety Jamal Adams — will be off the board by the time Chicago goes on the clock at No. 3.
The Bears could trade down in the first round and accumulate more picks.
