Emeka Egbuka. . Pick No. 12. 1. player. Emeka Egbuka. . WR. Emeka Egbuka. 490

A few picks later at no. 12 overall, obtained from the trade with Arizona, the Bears draft the other Ohio State wide receiver, Emeka Egbuka. With all of the focus being on Marvin Harrison Jr., let's not forget about Egbuka, who is a stud, himself.

Getting Egbuka onto this same offense as D.J. Moore makes things very interesting, as both of them are incredible after the catch. Egbuka stands 6-foot-1, 205 pounds and has impressive length which pairs nicely with his straight-line speed.

There really isn't anything Egbuka struggles with, as he is a fantastic route runner and knows how to create space, also finding the open areas to sink into quickly. His footwork allows him to get in and out of breaks in a hurry while also being able to change direction on a dime.

If the Bears find a way to bring back Darnell Mooney, that's one heck of a trio at wide receiver, not to mention the continuing development of Tyler Scott behind those guys. Even if Mooney hits free agency, the youth of Egbuka and Scott alongside Moore should be enough for Justin Fields to have some fun with.

Yes, Fields sticks around in this mock (fingers crossed).
