The Chicago Bears could hope to draft George Pickens in the second round

Darnell Mooney has done a great job this season being the Bears’ top wideout as Allen Robinson has been in and out of the lineup, but can he be a true number one wideout?

All signs point to Robinson heading out of Chicago at the conclusion of this season so it would be in the team’s best interest to sign or draft another impact wideout for Fields. Georgia’s George Pickens could offer that.

Pickens, a former five-star recruit, was highly touted coming out of high school and was expected to be an immediate contributor. In fact, Pickens had the best season of his college career his freshman year with 49 catches for 727 yards and 8 touchdowns in 14 games.

In the last two seasons, Pickens has played a total of 11 games totaling 40 catches for 568 yards and six touchdowns due to injuries. This season, he’s only played in the last three games totaling four catches for 55 yards.

His injury history does present a red flag, but without a first-round pick, the Bears could see Pickens as having the potential to be a first-round talent falling to the second round.

The Chicago Bears need an upgrade at wideout, assuming Robinson departs, if Pickens is able to put it together against Alabama’s tough defense, then it would drastically help his case.
