3 wide receivers the Bears should target (and 1 they shouldn't) in 2024

Chicago could build this offense into a machine next offseason.

You can kiss the postseason goodbye. The Chicago Bears blew another fourth quarter lead this season, losing in Week 15 to the Cleveland Browns after going into the final period up by 10.

The tail end of the game saw wide receiver Darnell Mooney have the game-winning touchdown fall in his lap, but he failed to haul in the Hail Mary tipped his way.

Speaking of Mooney and the wide receiver position, it's a spot that could look a little different next season as the Bears (hopefully) attempt to surround Justin Fields with even more talent. Looking ahead to the 2024 offseason, the Bears should be targeting a few key wide receivers while avoiding one big name.

Target: Marvin Harrison Jr., Ohio State, 2024 NFL Draft prospect

Let me make this as clear as I possibly can: the Bears' best move come April is to stay put at no. 1 and draft Ohio State's Marvin Harrison Jr.

No, they shouldn't trade the pick for a haul. At that point, you risk losing out on the best player in the draft in Harrison. The temptation of a haul for the top pick in the draft is certainly there, but if the Bears want to assure themselves of, again, the best player in this class, they should take Harrison number one.

In case you are still unfamiliar with Harrison, he's a 6-foot-4 replica of his father, an. NFL Hall of Famer. Oh, except for the fact that he looks like he can be even better than his father. He does everything well, and has sub-4.4 speed to go with it all. Harrison, quite honestly, does not have a weakness.

If you pair Harrison with D.J. Moore, you'd be setting Justin Fields up for the most success he's seen yet.
