The Chicago Bears find a new toy in the third round

This is where things can get a little messy, because the Bears may end up moving on from Allen Robinson in a tag-and-trade if Ryan Pace can’t figure out a way to get a long-term deal done. Right now, Bears fans should be operating under the assumption that Robinson doesn’t play for the Bears in 2021, even if he is tagged.

So, it’s time to move on. The Bears look to find his replacement in Round 3 by selecting Oklahoma State’s Tylan Wallace.

The 5-foot-11 Wallace is going to be a solid starting possession receiver in the pros. He’s one who will win because of his route running, as well as proving to go up and get those 50-50 balls down the sideline.

Wallace is one of those receivers who finds a lot of solace in winning the tough battles. He possesses excellent hands and can give his quarterback an expanded catch radius, even when it looks like it’s not there.

Over the last three years, Wallace has been a concrete part of the Oklahoma State offense. In total, he’s caught 198 passes for 3,316 yards and 26 touchdowns from 2018-2020.

With Wallace and Mooney on the outside, the Bears would have a young tandem and each of them would work well to complement one another in what they do best.
