Round 6 Ι Pick 197: The Chicago Bears select wide receiver Reggie Roberson Jr.
The wide receiver position is one that could look different for the 2021 season. Not only could Allen Robinson be gone, but the Bears really haven’t gotten much out of Javon Wims or Riley Ridley — the latter is more of a mystery than anything, as the Bears have hardly used Ridley at all since drafting him in the fourth round two years ago.
But, it may be time to bring in some fresh faces who are hungry to make a difference, and the opportunity to get a player like Reggie Roberson Jr. in the sixth round is one the Bears cannot pass up.
In just five games this season, Roberson scored five touchdowns and put up a career-high 21.5 yards per reception. He’s got above-average size at 6-feet tall and is a strong athlete. Roberson knows how to use his body to get in front of corners and possesses sure hands.
Roberson is a sneaky athlete who can go up and high-point the football, as shown in the above frame. If someone like Wims is gone next year, it could be because the Bears went the route of a player like Roberson who can do some of the same things Wims had shown in the past.
