Pretty uneventful day in Chicago, huh? The Bears gave up their first-round pick in the Jay Cutler trade, and moments ago they traded out of the first day of the draft altogether.

General manager Jerry Angelo sent the 49th overall pick to Seattle for third- and fifth-round picks on Sunday. (They are the Nos. 68 and 105 overall.) At least one of the receivers that have been linked to the Bears, Georgia's Mohamad Massaquoi, was available at the time of the trade.

The truth is that it's not easy to get an impact player in the middle of the second round. Angelo opted to accumulate more mid-range picks instead. So we'll talk to you tomorrow, Chicago.
