Chicago Bears 2021 mock draft if team trades for Russell Wilson
By Joseph Herff
Chicago Bears: Round 7, Pick No. 196
The FCS-product has shown for years that he is a dominant wide receiver. He additionally showed it at the Senior Bowl as well, but he is still massively underrated and should do well at the next level.
Cade Johnson, along with multiple other FCS products, showed out at the Senior Bowl. He shows great speed and ability to create separation multiple times at the Senior Bowl dominating Power 5 corners in one-on-ones. Johnson is additionally lethal with the ball in his hands.
He is another smaller wide receiver, but he would give the Bears another deep threat option. He averaged over 18 yards per reception the last two seasons for the Jack Rabbits and showed to be a solid kick-off return man as well. Johnson has the upside to develop into a Darnell Mooney type of wide receiver. He could additionally compete for the starting slot wide receiver role as well.
If Cordarrelle Patterson does not return to the Bears, the Bears need to look elsewhere for return men and Johnson could do that. His quickness, speed, elusiveness, and explosiveness would be extremely desirable for a return man.
