Chicago Bears small school wide receiver targets: Isaiah McKoy, Kent State

In years past, Pace has taken some odd routes in the later rounds. Some of his selections simply haven’t made a lick of sense. Last year, for example, he took a pair of offensive linemen in the seventh round who had no business being drafted.

This year, the Bears have a few sixth-rounders to work with and Pace has to use those later picks on guys with much higher upside. One of those players could end up being Kent State’s, Isaiah McKoy.

Like the aforementioned Adams, McKoy stands 6-foot-3 and possesses a towering frame. He is not as big as Adams, though, weighing 185 pounds. Still, the downfield type of threat remains the same between these two, and McKoy could be drafted a little later.

Unfortunately, McKoy played in just four games in 2020, so he didn’t get to put a full season on display. However, in those four games, he still caught 25 passes for 455 yards and five scores — that includes an 18.2 yards per catch average.

According to scouting reports, McKoy is going to need to work on securing the football a little better. Drops have been a question mark with McKoy, but other than that, he has a lot of likable traits. Obviously, his size and ability to win downfield will help him earn a roster spot somewhere. But, ensuring he eliminates drops is going to be his primary focus.
