5. Michael Pittman Jr., Indianapolis Colts

Many Bears fans aren’t exactly enamored with Michael Pittman Jr., but I don’t believe we have seen the best of him yet as a pro. The Colts have been in quarterback purgatory for a few years now, and even Indianapolis hasn’t been able to unlock Pittman’s true potential.

But, with the possibility of Indianapolis trading up to the number one pick, some think Pittman could be involved in a potential deal.

If the Colts were willing to trade Pittman in a deal involving the number one pick, then Chicago should absolutely listen. Assuming they get a haul of picks, plus Pittman, this would be a win.

At 6-foot-4, Pittman is a monster of a man and hard to bring down in space. His catch radius is huge and he’s proven he can be at least a great number two receiver, but some think he can be a number one.

It could end up being a bit of a risk to bank on Pittman being the number one guy, but he’s an upgrade to what the Bears currently have. He’s gone for 2,510 yards and 11 touchdowns in his first three seasons with the Colts.
