Velus Jones Jr.
Through 2 years in Chicago, Jones has failed to solidify a niche on the team. Jones isn't a great receiver, and the team doesn't involve him much in the run game. Is there really a role for him on the team in 2024?
Jones has collected just 11 catches for 127 yards in his career thus far. Jones has rushed 16 times for 152 yards, but doesn't get on the field regularly. In 2023, Jones has managed just 7 carries, as Justin Fields, Khalil Herbert, and D'Onta Foreman take the bulk of the work. Jones has been decent on kick returns, averaging 26.8 yards per return. However, Jones is a positionless player at this point.
The Bears can find more talented gadget players in the draft. Adding receivers who can run routes and make contested catches is more important to this team than a player like Jones.
