Marquess Wilson seems to be penciled into the #3 wide receiver spot, but you’ll forgive me if I reserve judgment on a 7th round pick who had some character questions in college and had all of two catches for 13 yards last season in very limited duty. He’s been down in South Florida training with Marshall and Jeffery, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready for prime time. He had the size and speed, but needs to add some strength and prove he had what it takes to succeed at the next level.

2013 stats (Carolina Panthers): 7 catches for 55 yards and 1 TD
The Bears added Hixon to the mix this offseason mostly to be a special teams contributor but unlike many of the candidates to be a backup on the Bears, Hixon has some more experience actually paying wide receiver. Could he step in in a pinch and make a few catches? Sure. But could be full one of those top roles? I don’t think so either.
