After a chaotic Round 1 of the 2022 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears find themselves in a peculiar situation with the needs they have going into Day 2.

Six wide receivers were taken in Round 1, so what’s left for the Chicago Bears?

There were six total receivers taken in the first round, which was surprising. There was a lot of buzz around receivers in this draft, but it wasn’t due to their skill— though there’s certainly skill in this receiver class. That being said, the narrative surrounding the receivers of this draft was more depth than the top-end talent.

Jahan Dotson was the one receiver of the top six that I personally didn’t want on the Chicago Bears from receivers taken in the first round.

Luckily for them, teams that seemed like they’d pick a wide receiver in the first round (i.e. Green Bay and Kansas City) went a different direction.

That being said, there are still at least five remaining players after round one that the Chicago Bears could happily draft in Day 2. Day 2 includes rounds two and three, so most of these names are of players that weren’t as shocking to see left on the board, yet, a couple of the names shocked me a bit.

What are those names? Glad you asked.

Here’s the first player.
