The Chicago Bears should reunite Justin Fields with Garrett Wilson, WR

To start off, the Chicago Bears getting Garrett Wilson this upcoming draft is going to be very unlikely. Their first pick as of right now is pick No. 39, towards the top of round two.

However, similarly to how the Bears got Justin Fields, trading into the first round isn’t out of the realm of possibilities. Is it likely? No. Is it possible? Sure is.

Now, in terms of reuniting Fields with Wilson, he wasn’t Fields’ No. 1 target in 2020 when the two suited up together, but what Fields and Wilson combined for is nothing to bat an eye at.

To say Justin Fields and Garrett Wilson didn’t have a connection wouldn’t be true. Now, saying he was Fields’ No. 1 target would be crossing the line.

However, even though Wilson wasn’t Fields’ first target in his final year with the Buckeyes, Garrett Wilson will likely be the first OSU wide receiver taken in the 2022 NFL Draft.

For the Chicago Bears to be able to reunite Fields and Wilson, it’d likely take a trade-up into the first ten-or-so picks of the first round.

Is that worth it for a guy Fields didn’t even target most when together at OSU? Well, Garrett Wilson is close to the top receiver prospect in the draft— if not the top receiver in the draft— so even if not to reunite the two, Justin Fields getting Garrett Wilson to throw to would be nothing to look down at.

Just try not to get your hopes up of that happening. The odds don’t favor Chicago much in that draft selection.

With one down, there are three to go. Who’s next?
