Chicago Bears 7-Round Mock Draft: Two splash trades fill big needs
By Ryan Heckman
This is where things get incredibly interesting for the Bears. Whether or not Allen Robinson re-signs with the team, they should go after a wide receiver. This is an offense that needs to enter 2021 as an explosive unit, and a second trade like this would get them one heck of a wideout.
Chicago Bears get: 2021 2nd Round Pick (no. 35), 2021 5th Round Pick (no. 132)
Falcons get: CB Kyle Fuller, 2021 6th Round Pick (no. 180)

Terrace Marshall is going to be a very, very good receiver in the NFL for a long time. Remember the LSU offense featuring J’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson from 2019? Marshall was third in the pecking order, but he still managed to catch 46 passes for 671 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Then, in 2020, he followed it up with another double-digit touchdown performance (10) in just seven games. On an LSU team that was a far cry from a season ago, Marshall was a bright spot, catching 48 passes for 731 yards.
The 6-foot-3 specimen has it all. If you want a guy who has the size, speed, route-running and ball skills of a top-end wide receiver, that’s Marshall in a nutshell. He has every physical tool you could ask for and can line up anywhere.
The Bears haven’t had a true no.1, big-bodied wide receiver like Marshall since they had the towering duo of Alayon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall a few years back. Seeing a player like this line up and make plays in Chicago again would be a welcomed sight for fans.
