XXXThe wait­ing game

Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - CHICAGO SPORTS -

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.
