Chicago Bears: Round 2 Ι Pick No. 52

My prediction is Allen Robinson is gone, so the Bears need to find their next main wide receiver target. Getting Terrace Marshall Jr. in the second round is the perfect solution to that issue. Many mocks have him going in the first round, so for him to fall to me is outstanding.

Marshall is a long, well-rounded wide receiver that was often forgotten about at LSU. It’s hard to get much attention when you’re playing alongside NFL star rookie Justin Jefferson and consensus top-ten pick in Ja’Marr Chase. This year though, Chase opted out and Jefferson headed to the NFL allowing everyone to see what he could do.

Marshall was a force in this seven-game season for LSU catching 48 passes for 731 yards and 10 touchdowns. Even in 2019 alongside Chase and Jefferson, he caught 13 touchdown passes. He is a touchdown machine that can excel anywhere on the field. He’s great in every way and has no real weakness to his game outside of some drop concerns that randomly popped up this season and could improve in run-blocking. He will be great at the NFL level and should be an instant starter.

As stated above, Marshall is the Allen Robinson replacement. Robinson is reported to want upwards of $25 million per year and the Bears just can’t afford that. Marshall is a cheap, younger option that can be a force for many years for the Bears. He and Darnell Mooney will be a great young 1-2 punch.
