The Bears moved up nine spots in the second round to draft Oregon State DT Stephen Paea.

Chicago traded the No. 62 overall pick and a fourth-round pick (No. 127) for the Redskins' No. 53 overall pick.

The Bears' fourth-rounder that was traded would have went to the Ravens had they pulled off a potential first-round trade yesterday to move up to No. 26 — but that deal famously failed to work out, with the Chiefs jumping ahead of the Ravens when time expired.
