The Chicago Bears might feel that they need one more wide receiver for 2021.

The 2021 top wide receiver class is very SEC heavy. Ja’Marr Chase of LSU might be a top-ten pick. Jaylen Waddle and Devonta Smith of Alabama are not going to be far behind him. If you look for the fourth guy in the draft at the position, it is the guy who lined up opposite of Chase in Terrace Marshall Jr. Those are likely going to be the four wide receivers taken in the first round and they reign from the same two schools.

Marshall had a good year for the Tigers in 2020. He only played in seven games but he managed to have 731 yards on 48 receptions. He averaged 15.2 yards per reception which is really nice. That is the type of season playing for a school like LSU that gets you drafted in the first round. He was also there when LSU won the National Championship in early 2020 to cap off a really good 2019 season.

So why would the Bears want to draft a wide receiver? They franchise tagged Allen Robinson but we don’t know how long he will be there. Darnell Mooney was a really nice find but he would be perfect as a number three. Anthony Miller was a disaster of a draft pick so replacing him with Terrace Marshall Jr would be awesome. If the Bears added a guy like this, the weapons for Andy Dalton might be enough to at least look competent.
