XXXThe waiting game
After making top-10 selections in his first four NFL drafts, Bears general manager Ryan Pace will have his patience tested this year. Barring a trade up, the Bears will sit through the first two rounds of the draft this week without a pick before making a selection late in Round 3 – No. 87 overall – on Friday night. Pace has five picks total – one each in Rounds 3, 4 and 5 and two in Round 7 – and has stressed the need to take full advantage of them. As for whom Pace and his staff are targeting with that third-round pick, it’s tough to say. But a running back appears to be on their wish list, and Dan Wiederer identifies one who could be on their radar.
