The NFL Draft is exciting for fans and players entering the NFL. It is something new, a breath of fresh air. However, for what is coming in, there is always something going out and getting replaced. These are the harsh realities of the NFL. 

Which players on the Chicago Bears may have seen their status take a dip after draft weekend?

3. The Chicago Bears did not trust Tyler Scott

Entering the draft, Tyler Scott was in a good spot as the Bears' third wide receiver. However, that quickly changed with the ninth overall pick. The big issue is how good Rome Odunze is and will be. The team has D.J. Moore, who is obviously the top receiver on the roster, and then there is Keenan Allen, who will fill in at the slot. 

Chicago drafted Scott to replace Darnell Mooney in the slot, but with a new quarterback and coordinator, he does not have much of a fit. Now, he is the fourth wide receiver, and when you look at the names ahead of him, it is hard to think of a player who should ever lose snaps so that Scott can rotate into the mix. 

Scott is likely to finish two full seasons with under 500 yards receiving. Maybe if Keenan Allen is gone after this year, there is a chance for Scott to find himself a role in his third NFL season, but the path to him being successful on the Bears during his rookie contract just got a lot more narrow.
