5 wide receivers Chicago Bears would have to trade up for
4. Treylon Burks, Arkansas
If any of the top wide receivers were to slide, it may be Treylon Burks. Still, it is so hard to see that happening in a wide receiver needy draft. Treylon Burks has great size, but many thought his speed would be better.
Still, while his 40-yard dash did not set the world on fire, he has been verified as one of the fastest players on the field last season. To be that fast at his size would be something. The thing with Burks is that he is not refined at all.
He did not run many routes and was not asked to do much downfield. When he did, he flashed, but the offense was designed to get him the ball near the line of scrimmage and let him use his size and speed to shrug off defenders. There is a question of how much that can translate before he is just a gadget player.
Still, the traits he brings present a lot of upsides, and as noted his limited reps on the outside and working downfield typically went well. While he may fall outside the top 20, teams like the Green Bay Packers would have no issue using his size on screens as they use to with Davante Adams. Even Jerry Jones would love nothing more than to add an Arkansas wideout.
