SBN: Chicago Bears' Wide Receivers 6th Worst

Devin Hester, Wide Receiver!!!

SB Nation, otherwise known as the Mothership, is ranking all the position groups in the NFL on a team by team basis. Earlier today they dropped the wide receiver rankings, and as you probably could have guessed, you needed to scroll down a bit before you got to the beloved's receiving corps. I figured somewhere near the top of the bottom half was where they'd have Brandon Marshall and company ranked, but they were all the way down at number 27.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised, as without Marshall they probably would have had them dead last. But adding a Pro Bowler and honest to goodness #1 receiver will have a trickle down effect on the entire receiving core. Oops, check that; corps. Sorry Spongie. Sure handed Earl Bennett will benefit from the concern over how to cover Marshall, and ridiculous Devin Hester will no doubt have a little more room to operate.

After the jump a look at what they had to say about Chicago's wide outs.

Adding Brandon Marshall was a solid move to help quarterback Jay Cutler. It's still pretty thin behind Marshall. Chicago took a chance on Alshon Jeffery, who earned the scorn of draft pundits following a poor season at South Carolina and rumors of weight problems. If he plays up to his talent, Chicago's receivers could be a very different group. Beyond those two this is a group thin on talent.

So they don't want to give much credit to the Bears rookie WR, but they give plenty of love to a couple of rookie Bengals that helps them to a top 10 ranking. And the Jags appear to be led by a rookie WR and a guy that has his own set of questions surrounding him.

Take a gander at their list and let us know what you think. I found it interesting to note that their top two teams were the Lions and Packers respectively. Do the Lions really have that great a group? I think Packer fans will have a legit gripe.

For the record, I think the Bears should have been ahead of the Colts, Jaguars, and Seahawks, and a good argument could be made for a few other teams as well.
