Ranking 5 best day 3 WR draft options for Chicago Bears
The Chicago Bears are likely to take a wide receiver with one of their three-day-two picks. However, they are just as likely to take a wide receiver one of their three-day-three picks as well. The reality is that this team is bare at wide out, and they have two holes that could easily make the 53-man roster.
So, no matter what they do beforehand, it will be good to know about the day three wide receivers in the 2021 NFL draft. Who are some of the best options for the Chicago Bears?
5. Jalen Nailor, Michigan State
NFL Comparison: Dyami Brown
Average Mock Draft Position: 206
The Chicago Bears could potentially hope to double up and add Jalen Nailor to a wide receiver they added earlier in the draft. Nailor is expected to be drafted after the Bears’ sixth-round pick, so they could certainly take him at pick 186.
The team already brought Nailior into Halas Hall to get to know him more, and we highlighted how he may fit on the team in his draft profile. It is obvious that some sort of interest is there, and depending on how his day with the Bears went, they could be feeling comfortable with what he brings to the team.
Nailor would probably go higher if it were not for his injuries, but the injuries cannot be discounted either.
Beyond that, he is a speed threat who does not have elite speed. Still, his skill set does fit where Justin Fields throws the ball, and he could come and compete for special team’s work. That would make him worthy in round six.
