The 2020 NFL draft resumes Friday night with the second and third rounds kicking off at 6 pm. CST, and with the Chicago Bears owning picks 43 and 50, they'll soon be on the clock for the first time.
But will it be at a higher selection? According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bears and Giants are trying to move up.
A couple more teams to keep an eye on: The #Bears and #Giants have made calls about a potential trade-up quickly on tonight. We'll see what transpires, but a good opportunity for action early. https://t.co/ygA2GHDbq6

If Ryan Pace is trying to move into one of the first few picks of Round 2, the next logical question is who's the target?
Several first-round quality players are still on the board, including Penn State edge rusher Yetur Gross-Matos, Houston offensive tackle Joshua Jones, and Georgia running back D'Andre Swift.
But none of those positions are glaring needs right now. If Pace is looking to fill a void early in the round, players like Alabama safety Xaveir McKinney and Utah cornerback Jaylon Johnson make sense.
There's also that guy Jalen Hurts, too.
