The Chicago Bears did a great job of adding key positions in free agency, and they put themselves in a spot where they do not need to make many major additions in the 2024 NFL draft. Now, they can let the board come to them. 

Still, while they are going to be able to take the top player on their board in most cases, the team will also have to look for certain positions as well. Which positions should the Chicago Bears be looking into in the 2024 NFL draft?

4. The Chicago Bears should still draft a wide receiver in the 2024 NFL draft

The Bears did more than most fans could have imagined to add to the wide receiver room this offseason. With the addition of Keenan Allen via trade, the team has their best wide receiver duo since Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey, and it is probably a better duo than that. 

Still, even in this situation, a wide receiver is a need. Behind these two is Tyler Scott, who certainly could be the third option, but last year, he had just 168 yards and was struggling to beat out Velus Jones and Trent Taylor for playing time down the stretch. Speaking of Jones, he is essentially a bust now, but he is competing to be wide receiver four behind Scott. Dante Pettis, Colin Johnson, and Nsimba Webster are the only other names on the roster. 

The Bears need to add a legitimate third wideout; then they could push Scott to the fourth option, Jones would be fifth, and the rest would be right at the end of the roster. Heck, it may be smart to draft an early-round option and a late-round option to push Jones into that fifth or sixth position. Who should they draft?
