The Bears fans at the draft in Chicago will have to continue waiting for their team to make a pick. The Bears have moved down again, sending the No. 49 pick to the Seahawks, according to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune (Twitter link).
Chicago will move down to No. 56, and will acquire Seattle’s fourth-round pick (No. 124) as well, tweets Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. On the other side of the deal, the Seahawks have used their newly-acquired 49th overall pick to snag Alabama defensive tackle Jarran Reed.
Reed, one of the best run-stuffers in this year’s class, should help fill the void left when longtime Seahawk Brandon Mebane left for San Diego in free agency. He’ll join Ahtyba Rubin, Jordan Hill and fellow newcomer Sealver Siliga in the Seahawks’ D-tackle rotation.
