Players to concern Chicago Bears: Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, Detroit Lions

The clear and obvious answer here is Penei Sewell, but he was one of the most talked-about prospects in the NFL Draft, so I decided to talk about another great addition for the Detroit Lions in Amon-Ra St. Brown. St. Brown was the Lions fourth-round pick in the draft and should immediately start for them.

St. Brown was a prospect that many in the draft community thought should’ve gone at the latest the third round of the draft. Some even saw him at the beginning of the second, but he fell all the way to the Lions in the fourth round. St. Brown can play both out of the slot and split out wide. He isn’t a freak athlete, but he possesses reliable hands and isn’t afraid to take a hit while making a catch.

The Lions’ wide receiver core took a hit with the departure of Kenny Golladay and they truly didn’t reload. They added wide receivers in free agency, but none have been starters for their career thus far such as Breshad Perriman, Tyrell Williams, Kalif Raymond, and Damion Ratley. There is a possibility that St. Brown becomes the main target for new quarterback Jared Goff as there isn’t much competition.

The Bears lost Kyle Fuller, but brought in a draft pick in Thomas Graham Jr. and signed Desmond Trufant to replace him. It will be interesting to see how the Bears’ secondary looks without Fuller, but regardless, the Lions shouldn’t be much competition.
