7. Charlotte WR Grant DuBose is a deep sleeper for Chicago Bears

Grant DuBose is a big-time sleeper who should be available on day three. That is becoming more likely when the Chicago Bears will look to the wide receiver room anyways after their big move this offseason.

DuBose is a fascinating player who really was unknown until two years ago. He was under-recruited, and the college he attended got rid of the football program during COVID. He was working out with a friend and walked onto Charlotte before having two solid seasons, with about 1,600 yards, and 15 touchdowns in the past two years.

His ascension got him an invite to the Senior Bowl, and eventually, the NFL Combine, showing that the rise is real. DuBose did not blow away scouts at the NFL Combine but he showed solid burst. His ability to win in the air and track the ball away from his body is what makes him intriguing. Beyond that, he has a bit of experience as a punt return option, so he can immediately push Dante Pettis. On day three, these are the shots to take.
