LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) — The Bears are racking up picks in the latter rounds of this NFL Draft, making a series of trades on Saturday that took them to 10 total picks.
The Bears traded fifth-round picks Nos. 148 and 150 in separate trades. The Bears traded No. 148 to the Bills in exchange for the 168th (fifth-round) and 203rd (sixth-round) picks. Chicago then moved the 150th pick to Houston for the 166th (fifth round) and 207th (sixth round) picks. The Bears now have seven selections to use on Saturday, the third and final day of the draft.
Prior to those trades, the Bears traded their 2023 sixth-round pick to the Chargers in exchange for a pair of seventh-round picks numbered 254 and 255 overall. In doing so, Chicago essentially cuts the line on players it could sign as undrafted free agents after the draft.
The Bears currently have just 64 players on their 90-man roster. They only had six picks going into this draft before making their trade streak.
