With Cameron Meredith allowed to go play football with Drew Brees in New Orleans, the Chicago Bears may be looking for his replacement in the 2018 NFL Draft. Had Meredith returned, he would have likely been the third option among the wide outs, but as it stands now, Chicago’s receiving corps is untested and thin behind the newly signed Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel.
Luckily for the Bears, this draft has a number of prospects that could fall all over the draft board depending on what teams are looking for. I doubt the Bears will attack the position at number eight overall, but anywhere else is wide open. If the Bears trade back off of eight, further back into the first, them maybe a wide out would be atop their draft board.
In my latest T Formation Conversation podcast (Subscribe now on iTunes for free!) I was joined by the always insightful EJ Snyder and he gave me some names to keep an eye on in the draft that the Bears could target.
Here are just a few of the receiving prospects we discussed.
D.J. Moore, Maryland
Anthony Miller, Memphis
Equanimeous St. Brown, Notre Dame
Simmie Cobbs, Indiana
DaeSean Hamilton, Penn State
Allen Lazard, Iowa State
