So lets get to the bottom of this. What are our biggest needs? Here's mine:

1. RB - 1 more fast, pass catching RB would make for a great backfield
2. DB - you probably can get a really good corner on the third round
3. OL - always can use more OL
4. TE - After Burton there is a big drop - No idea if Sheehan will stay healthy
5. Edge - can always use another Edge
6. Kicker - not interested in drafting one - but they might (should be at the top)

I'd update your #2 need as follows:

2a. CB - you probably can get a really good corner on the third round
2b.   S - Bears are OK this year w/ Ha Ha and Bush as the first safety back up but both those guys are FAs in 2020

And aside from kicker I could see Pace drafting any one of those positions in round 3.

Most of those guys on bearswire are going to go in the 2nd round...Bears are drafting near the bottom of round 3.

Don't get your hopes up.

Not in round 3.  He's not as fast/quick as Jordan Howard and smaller at 5-8 200.  An effective and productive runner but I think he should be there in round 4.

In Pace's press conference he talked about the Bears' depth at HB with Davis, Cohen, Nall and Patterson.  No mention of Mizzell (thank you).

I'm not that confident in Mike Davis so I'm like most thinking Pace might go HB in round 3 - maybe 30% probability.  But I know we need a starter at safety next year and I'm not too comfortable with our depth at CB now behind Fuller and Amukamora.  So I'd put safety at 25% and CB at 25%.  That leaves another 20% for possibly O-line, TE, or edge rusher.

I think Mike Davis is a stud and low millage.

I think Pace and Nagy think so too

And if they are going to trade picks, I believe they will trade down.
