The Bears can sign WR D.J. Chark

Keenan Allen and D.J. Moore are about as good a duo as you can get in football, maybe other than Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle or Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. Sure, you can also argue Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua.

But, Allen and Moore are an elite pairing.

However, beyond those two, the Bears' lack of depth is concerning. Tyler Scott is the next man up. Can he take a big jump in Year 2? Is Velus Jones ever going to be something? Chicago needs to add more talent, thus why many fans love the idea of adding Rome Odunze with pick no. 9.

Veteran D.J. Chark is still out there and caught five touchdowns for the Panthers last season. He is someone that brings a whole lot of speed and can be an outside threat, while both Allen and Moore can easily play the slot when needed, as they're pretty versatile.

If the Bears decided to sign Chark and then proceeded to trade back from pick no. 9 in order to recoup some draft capital, that's a series of events many fans could get behind. And, it's not too farfetched to imagine happening. Ryan Poles is always looking how he can improve through making trades, and Chark would give the Bears a ton of flexibility on draft night.
