4. Javon Wims passes the eye test

To this day, Georgia Bulldog fans and college football nerds alike cannot believe that Javon Wims fell to the seventh round of this year’s draft. Anyone who watched him in college remembers him making big catch after big catch — and on the biggest stages, too.

In his first NFL game action, Wims did not disappoint. The former Bulldog caught seven passes for 89 yards. Watching Wims on just a few snaps, you could tell he was the real deal.

In my mind, Wims looks 100 percent more confident and ready for this level of competition than White. In fact, I shot out a tweet last night stating that I’d take Wims in a heartbeat over White at this point.

I would much rather have a guy who runs routes confidently and goes up and makes the difficult grabs than someone who runs tentatively and gives sporadic performances in camp. White has had some good moments in camp, but he’s also looked incredibly stiff and hesitant at times.

Wims, on the other hand, looks completely ready to go as a professional football player. There is absolutely no way he should not make this roster, especially being the biggest wideout the Bears have. He’s got great hands and already looks assertive on the field, but it helps that he’s also 6-foot-4, giving his quarterbacks the big bodied target they may be lacking elsewhere.

This kid should make the football team — period. Wims belongs on the Bears. He belongs in the NFL, and the Hall of Fame Game proved it.
