The Bears sent a fourth-round pick to the Saints in exchange for a fifth-round pick. On Saturday, the Bears made a transaction with the New Orleans Saints that involved the fourth and fifth rounds of the draft. The Bears sent the 103rd pick in the fourth round to the Saints in exchange for the 115th and 165th picks in the fifth round. The third day’s selection process begins with the 103rd overall choice.
General manager Ryan Poles of the Bears completed his third trade during this year’s draft. The Tennessee offensive tackler Darnell Wright was the player the Poles selected after they made a trade that sent them backward in the first round. The Bears also received a draft pick that will be used in the fourth round of the following year’s draft as part of their agreement with the Eagles.
Tyrique Stevenson, a cornerback from Miami, was taken by the Bears at No. 56 in the second round after the team traded up on Friday. As part of the transaction, the Bears gave the Jaguars the 61st overall pick and a fifth-round selection (ranked 136th overall).
One of the remaining picks for the Bears is number 133 in the fourth round. This pick came from the Eagles and was obtained by the Bears on October 26 last year in exchange for defensive end Robert Quinn. They acquired the selection from the Ravens on November 1 as part of the Roquan Smith trade. The pick’s number is 148 in the fifth round.
In addition, the Bears held their selection for the seventh round (No. 218) and received a compensation pick for the seventh round (No. 258).
