4. WR Terrace Marshall Jr., LSU

Chicago has a solid wide receiver duo with Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney for 2021. However, what the Bears don’t have is a good option in the slot. Anthony Miller appears to be on his way out, which means the Bears need to consider Terrace Marshall Jr.

Over the last two seasons, Marshall Jr. has had to live in the shadows of Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson, however, he burst onto the scene in 2020 with 48 receptions for 731 yards, and 10 touchdowns.

Throughout his time at LSU, Marshall Jr. established himself as a highly productive player that could become a key part of any offense. Finishing his college career with 106 receptions for 1594 receiving yards while averaging 15 yards per reception, his skill set should translate very well to the next level.

Marshall Jr. does have experience playing on the outside and in the slot, something that would allow head coach Matt Nagy to get creative in terms of scheming matchups on offense. With ideal size (6-foot-3, 200 pounds), the LSU product has the physicality and route-running ability to become a prime option in the Bears offense.
