    Bears could move up for safety help

    The Bears don't have a pick in the first two rounds of this year's draft, but Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune passes along buzz that the team could trade up for safety help.

    Lovie Smith recently visit South Florida safety Nate Allen's Pro Day, and Biggs writes Smith doesn't hit the road looking at prospects just for the sake of a smokescreen.

    Many draft analysts think Allen could go in the first round. There's almost no chance he will be available when the Bears pick in the third.

    Still, trading up for a safety sounds like the ultimate need-based desperation move. The Bears would likely have to mortgage away a pick next year to acquire what should be a cheap position to fill.

    Then again, Smith and G.M. Jerry Angelo's moves this offseason indicate they are less worried about what happens in 2011, and more worried about staying gainfully employed then.

    Could bode well for Jerry.

    Sounds like idle talk to me to keep the fans of a team without a first or second round choice interested. I do not see what they have that they could work with to move up unless they are truly interested in trading TE Greg Olsen.

    This whole off-season has reeked of desperation for the Bears. Lovie better hope he wins this year.
