Sticking to the offense here in the fourth round, the Bears select their second receiver of the draft with Lousiville's Jamari Thrash. Looking at the depth chart next year, it will be Moore and Harrison at the top. But from there, it could be anyone's opportunity to step up.

Darnell Mooney could very well be gone via free agency, leaving Tyler Scott and Velus Jones as the no. 3 and no. 4 options. Sure, Harrison and Moore are excellent at the top. But, the depth isn't exactly strong. That's why Thrash is taken, here, to give the Bears some competition and more potential playmaking ability.

After four years with Georgia State, Thrash transferred to Louisville and enjoyed a productive season in his fifth and final season of collegiate play. With the Cardinals, he caught 63 passes for 858 yards and six scores.

Thrash is a guy who brings elite speed to the position, especially on long, straight-line strides. Like Tyler Scott, Thrash presents the Bears with a deep threat. However, he also excels after the catch. He's a nifty route runner and can get down the field in a hurry with the ball in his hands. At any moment, Thrash has a chance to take one to the house.
