Chicago Bears wide receiver prospects not covered

The Chicago Bears prospect receivers that are not mentioned today include:

  • David Bell
  • Chris Olave
  • Jalen Tolbert
  • Justyn Ross
  • George Pickens
  • Jahan Dotson
  • Skyy Moore

David Bell is an outstanding route runner. I believe he has a high floor and a lower ceiling. Having that high floor is the thing I like most about David Bell. He reminds me of Cooper Kupp in that you could bring him in and see results right away. I believe in high floors because those players have less to work on at the NFL level.

My only issue with David Bell currently is I don’t think he will be as fast as people think. I think he could be slower than Justyn Ross. If Bell is slow, that will slide his value. However, if Bell is faster than what I have seen, he would fit what the Chicago Bears are looking for in a playmaker. I see a decent amount of Alshon Jeffery in David Bell’s game.

I will once again poop my pants (as I did for Justin Fields) if Chris Olave is available for the taking at pick number 39. I think what Joe Burrow and Jamar Chase did is an anomaly. Much like the 2021 NFL draft (so happy), Chris Olave is one of my top receivers in this class. Olave is a finished version of Ted Ginn Jr.

Having Olave would be like having Darnell Mooney (currently). Imagine if the Chicago Bears had Darnell Mooney. Oh wait, they do. Imagine having two of them? Chris Olave doesn’t just have speed; he can do everything much like Mooney. Anywho, I don’t believe he will be available much like Justin Fields wasn’t available for the 20th overall selection last season.
