Wide Receivers the Chicago Bears should target

My guess is the Bears don’t bring back Allen Robinson. After this season, I doubt he wants to sign an extension here. Additionally, I don’t see a scenario where they can afford to tag him this offseason. Regardless, he likely will walk, and outside of him, the Bears only have one reliable receiver in Darnell Mooney. They need more wide receiver depth via the draft even if they keep him.

Wide Receiver Rankings

  1. DeVonta Smith, Alabama
  2. Ja’Marr Chase, LSU
  3. Jaylen Waddle, Alabama
  4. Rashod Bateman, Minnesota
  5. Terrace Marshall Jr., LSU
  6. Kadarius Toney, Florida
  7. Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC
  8. Rondale Moore, Purdue
  9. Nico Collins, Michigan
  10. Seth Williams, Auburn

Player to Highlight: Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC

While at USC, Amon-Ra St. Brown developed a nice connection with fellow high 2022 NFL Draft prospect Kedon Slovis. St. Brown may be one of the safest prospects in this draft at wide receiver. He can be had in the middle of the second round, which would be perfect for the Bears. He primarily lines up in the slot at USC, but with his great size, athletic ability, contested-catch ability, and toughness, he can line up anywhere on the offense and excel at the NFL level.
