Detailed look at Pace's eight draft trades


Will he or won't he?

Only time will tell whether Ryan Pace will make a trade this weekend, but he's been active in his first four drafts as Bears general manager, completing eight deals, all in the last three years. Here's a detailed look at each of those trades:


Bears trade up for Floyd
The Bears moved up two spots in the first round to select outside linebacker Leonard Floyd, trading the No. 11th pick to the Buccaneers for the No. 9 choice and a fourth-round selection (No. 106). Tampa Bay picked cornerback Vernon Hargreaves at No. 11 and traded the No. 106 choice to the Chiefs, who selected cornerback Eric Murray.

Bears trade down twice and pick Whitehair
The Bears traded down twice in the second round—moving down eight spots and then seven more—before picking center Cody Whitehair at No. 56.

First, they dealt the No. 41 choice to the Bills in exchange for selections in the second (No. 49) and fourth (No. 117) rounds and a fourth-rounder in 2017 (No. 117). The Bears then traded the No. 49 pick to the Seahawks in exchange for choices in the second (No. 56) and fourth (No. 124) rounds. Buffalo selected linebacker Reggie Ragland at No. 41 and Seattle picked defensive tackle Jarran Reed at No. 49. The Bears took safety Deon Bush at No. 124.

Bears trade up for Kwiatkoski
The Bears later traded up one spot in the fourth round to choose linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski at No. 116 in the fourth round. They sent the No. 117 selection and a sixth-rounder (206th) to the Rams. Los Angeles picked receivers Pharoh Cooper at No. 117 and Mike Thomas at No. 206.


Bears trade up for Trubisky
The Bears traded up one spot in the first round to choose quarterback Mitchell Trubisky at No. 2, sending selections in the first (No. 3), third (No. 67) and fourth (No. 111) rounds as well as a 2018 third-round pick (No. 70).

San Francisco chose defensive end Solomon Thomas at No. 3, traded No. 67 to the Saints, who selected running back Alvin Kamara, dealt No. 111 to the Seahawks, who took safety Tedric Thompson. The 49ers picked linebacker Fred Warner at No. 70 in 2018.

Bears trade down and pick Shaheen
The Bears traded down in the second round with the Cardinals from No. 36 to 45 before choosing tight end Adam Shaheen. They also sent a seventh-round selection (No. 221) in the deal in exchange for picks in the fourth (No. 119) and sixth (No. 197) rounds as well as a 2018 fourth-round choice (No. 115). Arizona took safety Budda Baker at No. 36 and traded pick No. 221 to the Raiders, who took safety Shalom Luani.

The Bears drafted running back Tarik Cohen at No. 119 and selected linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe at No. 115 in the fourth round in 2018.

Bears trade up for Jackson
The Bears traded up five spots in the fourth round from No. 117 to 112 to choose safety Eddie Jackson, also sending their No. 197 selection in the sixth round to the Rams. Los Angeles chose receiver Josh Reynolds at No. 117 and traded the No. 197 choice to the Jets, who took cornerback Jeremy Clark.


Bears trade up for Miller
The Bears traded a fourth-round pick (No. 105) and a 2019 second-round choice to the Patriots for a second-round selection (No. 51) that they spent on receiver Anthony Miller. New England traded the 105th pick to the Browns, who chose receiver Antonio Callaway. The second-round selection in this year's draft the Patriots acquired from the Bears is at No. 56.
