Target: Malik Nabers, LSU, 2024 NFL Draft prospect

If the Bears go a different route with the no. 1 overall pick, whether it be via trade or drafting a Fields replacement (God forbid) then they should be targeting LSU wide receiver Malik Nabers a few picks later. Nabers will likely go within the top 15, and most would agree he is the second-best wideout in this class.

Nabers is a six-foot receiver who excels as a possession guy, although he does have above average deep speed. He is able to separate very well and possesses a strong frame which he uses after the catch. He also uses his strength to ensure he's open for his quarterback, even when he doesn't appear to be "open."

This season, Nabers posted monster numbers. He ended with 86 receptions for 1,546 yards and 14 touchdowns. Simply put, he knows how to move the chains and, as soon as he hauls in a pass, Nabers' eyes are stricly on the end zone.

The YAC potential between Nabers and Moore could be out of this world. Both are great after the catch and both have sneaky speed with the ball in their hands.
