Bears GM Pace stays away from NFL draft headquarters

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace will conduct his first draft at Halas Hall, far away from the festival atmosphere of the city where the draft is being held for the first time in 51 years.

Pace sees a need for the team to build through draft picks at virtually every position and will be looking for the best available athlete with the seventh overall pick.

The Bears could use a wide receiver to pair with Alshon Jeffery after dealing away Brandon Marshall, and also need more defensive help.
