The Chicago Bears should go up and draft wide receiver Christian Watson in Round 2

If the Bears haven’t realized just how desperate teams are going to get for a premier wide receiver, it’s about time they figure that out. Poles has to be looking at the six wide receivers that went in the first round, thinking he absolutely has to come away with one early on Day 2.

Prior to the draft, North Dakota State wide receiver Christian Watson was a rapid riser. He had even made it into the first round of some notable mock drafts, such as those done by NFL media personalities.

Watson has long been coveted by Bears fans, and why wouldn’t he be? The kid is 6-foot-4 and has a long, strong frame that can absolutely fly. It’s incredibly rare you find a wide receiver this big, and this fast. Watson ran a 4.36 at the Combine, and for a guy his size, that is an impeccable time.

As a possible first option, Watson shined in college. He did everything he needed to do at a smaller program — dominate, in a word.

Watson would give Fields that big body on the outside who can also line up in the slot at times if Chicago was to get creative. He’s a big play waiting to happen at any moment. Watson is a field-stretcher and a touchdown-scorer. Not to mention, he’s a locker room leader. This is the type of guy you go up and get on Day 2, even if it costs some extra capital.
