Chicago Bears’ This or That, Wide Receiver Edition: Revealed

After looking at Receiver A and B’s similar stats in their best season at college, they both come from the same exact college.

Both receivers were Georgia Bulldogs. However, will both of these Georgia Bulldogs end up drafted by the Chicago Bears?

The Chicago Bears drafted Receiver B in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Wide Receiver A: George Pickens (Georgia ’22)

Wide Receiver B: Javon Wims (Georgia ’17)

Were these the two receivers you were thinking of? I know personally, when I found this out, I was stunned.

However, it just drives home the idea that stats can be misleading. That’s especially true when just looking at receptions, yards, and touchdowns. In college, these stats can get inflated. Just going off the numbers they both put up shouldn’t be the one and only thing looked at.

Chicago Bears fans surely don’t remember Javon Wims fondly, as he caused headaches for many Bears fans in his career on the Chicago Bears.

And before anyone tries saying I think Javon Wims and George Pickens are the same players, that’s far from the truth. However, there are similarities between the two statistically, so I think it’s a fun experiment as to why stats shouldn’t be the only thing looked at when evaluating players.
