CLEVELAND, OHIO (KELO) — The Chicago Bears made a trade with the New York Giants to select Ohio State quarterback, Justin Fields.

The Bears originally held the #20 pick, but Chicago traded away some draft capital to get #12.

Chicago’s main team needs were quarterback, offensive line, wide receiver, defensive back and edge rusher and the Bears made a splash on Thursday.

Fields was named the 2019 and 2020 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year.
