The Bears traded up to get the Broncos’ 131st overall selection, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post (via Twitter). In a follow-up tweet, Klis provides details: the Bears sent the Broncos a fifth-rounder this year (No. 156) and a fifth-rounder next year in exchange for Nos. 131 and 246 (seventh round).
With the pick, the Bears tabbed Minnesota’s Brock Vereen, a defensive back with corner/safety versatility and terrific intangibles. Vereen is the brother of Patriots running back Shane Vereen.
