3. Velus Jones Jr., WR

Speaking of dynamic weapons, that's exactly what the Bears thought they had when drafting wide receiver Velus Jones Jr. in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Coming out of Tennessee, Jones had a whole lot of question marks. He was a 25-year-old rookie with only one full season of experience producing as a wide receiver.

Other than that one year with the Volunteers, Jones had been primarily a special teams player, where he excelled in the return game. But, Ryan Poles was convicted over his love for Jones and went with his gut. It turned out to be a huge mistake, especially considering how many good players went after Jones in last year's draft.

In his two years with the Bears, Jones has been mostly a kick returner with limited action on offense. He has been seen dropping passes, fumbling on occasion and looking lost on offense at times. He has given the Bears arguably nothing in his time with the team.

Like St. Brown, Jones should be off this roster next year in favor of more capable weapons. The Bears can find themselves a kick returner. Jones was supposed to be a big help on offense, but that simply hasn't happened.
