Which WRs should be available to Chicago Bears at pick 39
It appears that whether the Chicago Bears do it with their first or second pick, they will probably be walking away from the second round with a wide receiver. It is their glaring need, and there are always a group of talented wideouts falling into round two.
The Chicago Bears do not have the roster or assets to trade up, so while it is easy to assume that they will take a wide receiver in the second round, it is harder to say who.
Still, we can look historically and see how many wide-outs have been taken in the first round in typical years. Jonathan Wood did this below.
So, an average of 5.3 wide receivers go in the top 40, which means the Bears would likely be taking the sixth-best wideout on an average year.
When you look at average draft positions you can typically count out five wide receivers who are going first round in this draft. In any order, Garrett Wilson, Chris Olave, Jameson Williams, Treylon Burks, and Drake London will be gone by pick 39.
Every other wide receiver could be in play. Still, considering this is a deeper wide receiver and Jahan Dotson often goes in that range, he could be the one that you would have a tough time making the case for falling all the way to 39.
Still, if he becomes the sixth that puts this year slightly above average, but about what you would expect for the top 39 picks.
This puts the following wide receivers into play. According to The Athletic, NFL.com, PFF, and Grinding the Mocks, all of them have the next three wide receivers drafted as George Pickens, Christian Watson, and Skyy Moore.
The order can vary, but it is always those three. After that, you see names such as John Metchie, Jalen Tolbert, Calvin Austin, and Justyn Ross. Still, those names are much more mixed and matched, and always after these three.
So, will the Chicago Bears be deciding between Skyy Moore, George Pickens, and Christian Watson? Which fits best next to Justin Fields?
