The Bears continued reloading for the upcoming season with the the 2020 NFL Draft over the last three days. It was been a busy time for GM Ryan Pace, who kept up some of his usual habits (trades! a pick from a tiny school!) while adding a group of talented prospects to the organization.

Without a first-round pick for the second straight year due to the Khalil Mack trade, the Bears waited until Friday night to get started. They added on both sides of the ball in the second round with Notre Dame tight end Cole Kmet (No. 43 overall) and Utah cornerback Jaylon Johnson (No. 50 overall).

Pace could only wait so long before getting in on the action Saturday, too, as the team traded a 2021 fourth-round pick to the Vikings for the No. 155 overall pick, which it used on Tulsa pass rusher Trevis Gipson. Minutes later, the team scooped up a great name in Georgia Southern cornerback Kindle Vildor.

The offensive line finally got attention in the seventh round with two selections: Colorado’s Arlington Hambright and Tennessee State’s Lachavious Simmons.
