Bears Must Avoid Another Draft Bust

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

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

Height: 6’3″

Weight: 213

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.

    Been saying this for a while.  There are no sure things in the NFL, but given the volatile nature of his position, one has to assume that the odds of Floyd being a bust are about the same as him being a star.  I’d be hard pressed to draft a receiver in the first round for exactly this reason.  And it’s not disrespecting the offence, just playing smart football.  Case in point:  out of the 10 WR’s selected to this year’s Pro Bowl, only 3 of them were first round picks and 2 of those were selected in the top 20.
