It did not take long for the first trade of the 2017 NFL Draft to take place. The Chicago Bears moved up from the No. 3 pick, acquiring the No. 2 pick from the San Francisco 49ers. With the No. 2 pick, Chicago selected North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

In exchange, the 49ers acquired Chicago’s third overall pick, a third and fourth round pick in 2017, and a 2018 third rounder.
For the No. 2 pick the #49ers receive from Chicago:
– No. 3 overall pick
– 3rd round in '17 (67)
– 4th round in '17 (111)
– 3rd round in '18

Objectively, that’s a huge haul to move down only one pick. John Lynch has already been active in his first draft as an NFL general manager.
