Players the Chicago Bears could draft with Khalil Mack pick: WR Jalen Tolbert, South Alabama

One of the other wide receivers who may be there at pick 48 is South Alabama’s Jalen Tolbert — maybe the best deep threat in this class.

Over his four years in college, Tolbert averaged a ridiculous 17.3 yards per reception — including two seasons finishing at 19.3 and 18.0. At 6-foot-3, 190 pounds, Tolbert possesses great size for the position. This allows him to function well as an outside receiver but also have great potential for a run-after-catch type as well.

Tolbert’s hands are borderline elite, with his ability to adjust to the ball in the air. With his speed, he’s able to get behind a defense in a hurry. But, again, he has the size and strength to become difficult to tackle after the catch, allowing him to make huge plays out of the blue.

Last year, Tolbert caught 82 passes for 1,474 yards and eight touchdowns. He could give the Bears someone with flexibility, able to line up outside or in the slot at times. Because of his speed, strength and overall skill set, Tolbert should end up being a very good wideout at the next level.
