Chicago Bears: 3 Ways the 2021 NFL Draft can save the franchise
The Chicago Bears could take advantage of some receivers late
It seems that losing Allen Robinson in the offseason is for sure going to happen. He does not seem happy and I cannot imagine him wanting to stay. Will the Chicago Bears really franchise tag Robinson if he does not want to be here any longer?
Ryan Pace and company found a receiver who looks like he could be an impactful player in Darnell Mooney. Mooney was selected in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The 2021 NFL Draft could lead to similar results.
Just like the offensive line, TDN has 11 wide receivers in the top 100 players. Beyond that, another eight wide receivers fall between 100 and 150 in TDN’s rankings. This is where the Chicago Bears could land an impactful player in the third round. At 13th overall, the Chicago Bears will have three picks within the top 100. Unfortunately, the team currently does not have a fourth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Bears could land a guy like Kadarius Toney, Seth Williams, Dazz Newsome or Tylan Wallace in the third round. One of these guys plus a key free-agent acquisition could soften the blow of losing a top receiver like Allen Robinson. If I am the general manager of this team, quarterback and offensive linemen will be key, but wide receiver is another possible option too.
