In search of Knox 2.0 - Who should Emery pick?

After the harsh, but necessary release of Johnny Knox by the Bears, it is even more evident Chicago needs to add a receiver who has some of the same qualities as Knox.

Think sub 4.4 speed, someone who can get behind the safeties, who can play slot as well as outside and who can maybe contribute in the return game. I know the guys listed, are mostly not as fast as Knox, but play very fast and have considerable other qualities.

Now there’s already been a lot of draft talk here at WCG, still I wanted to make a list of possible candidates. Some of them have been talked about, some have not, I might have let someone off who you think needs to be on here. If so, feel free to share so I can add them.

Should the Bears add a playmaker in the first 2 rounds, or should they address other positions and come back in the 4th to add a receiver, with the risk the top talent is gone?
