It’s no secret the Bears are in the market for a wide receiver. Even if they take the plunge on a free agent, I fully expect the Bears to draft a wide receiver. Here’s a draft profile of a potential wide receiver the Bears are considering taking with their first round selection:
Position: Wide Receiver
40 Speed: 4.43
Vertical Jump: 34″
Here’s the scouting report:
Strengths: He is a big, physical receiver in the mold of a Keyshawn Johnson. He is a good route runner who knows how to get open. He has soft hands and has a knack for making the big play. He is also a powerful runner that picks up a lot of yards after the catch.
Weaknesses: Some scouts question his speed and sometimes his effort. He can be a good blocker when he wants to be, but has a tendency to shield defenders rather than drive them out of the play.
Summary: a playmaker and the best wide receiver in the draft. He’s a big-time player that makes big plays in big games. He will definitely be a top-five pick.
Who is this gem? Justin Blackmon? Michael Floyd? Hit the jump to see.
