Now that the 2024 NFL draft is over there will be little to no moves on the Chicago Bears roster before training camp. So, we can take a good look into what the depth chart will look like heading into the season. 

What does the Bears wide receiver depth chart look like heading into the summer months?

1. D.J. Moore

Despite any online talk, the best wide receiver on the Bears roster remains D.J. Moore. The addition of two talented wide receivers and the change in offense should allow the team to use Moore in areas where he is at his best. Expect him to be used over the middle of the field more, and look for his yards after the catch to increase. 

2. Rome Odunze 

The distinction between the two and three may not be that different with how often the three wide receivers play this season. When they go three wideouts, it will be Rome Odunze on the outside. He will be working down the field more, which will open up the middle of the field for Moore. He will not catch as many passes as Moore and likely will catch fewer than Allen, but this yards per catch will be much higher.

Slot: Keenan Allen 

Keenan Allen will be the primary slot option for the Chicago Bears. While this group looks like a perfect fit on paper we have to remember that Allen is going to be 32 and Odunze is a rookie. 

4. Tyler Scott

Tyler Scott was a loser of draft weekend as he got pushed out of three wide receiver sets for Odunze. The top three are so strong, and backup tight end Gerald Everett will play more than the fourth receiver so it is hard to see Scott producing much this season. 

5. Velus Jones

Velus Jones may have saved his roster spot due to the kick return rules that were put in place recently. 

6. Dante Pettis 

Dante Pettis has a shot to make the roster as the punt returner. 

7. Nsimba Webster 

Webster has been with the team since 2021. He has mostly stuck around the practice squad and that would be his best bet again this year. 

8. Colin Johnson 

The team signed Johnson late last year and kept him a round. He saw the field because of the lack of depth, but Chicago made sure that would not be the case this year. 

9. Odieu Hillare

Hilaire is a rookie UDFA who is unlikely to make the roster.
