Bears Rumors: Is A Draft Trade With The Eagles On Or Off The Table?

The Chicago Bears are one of the most intriguing teams heading into the 2015 NFL Draft, with many options including a trade on the team's plate with under three weeks to go until the festivities kick off.

One potential scenario could be a swap with the Philadelphia Eagles at #20 that would land Chicago a gaggle of draft picks while allowing Eagles coach Chip Kelly to select his former charge, Oregon QB Marcus Mariota.

However, if Marcus Mariota somehow slips to Chicago at #7, they could very well take him for themselves and groom him behind Jay Cutler as the team's franchise quarterback of the future. Chicago met with Mariota in early April and GM Ryan Pace likes what he sees out of the 2014 Heisman Trophy winner, so it's possible Kelly and the Eagles would have to trade ahead of Chicago in order to secure Mariota.

Whatever the case may be, it's going to be an extremely interesting lead-up to the NFL Draft for the Chicago Bears
