2. Find a WR2 to Pair with D.J. Moore

D.J. Moore ended up being well worth the trade that Poles pulled off when he shipped off the number one pick to Carolina. The Bears were able to land a true WR1 and now the number one overall pick this season due to Carolina having the worst record in the league.

While D.J. Moore exploded for career highs (96 receptions, 1,364 yards and eight touchdowns), there was little to no production elsewhere on the team from the wide receiver position.

Darnell Mooney was viewed to continue to develop and there were high hopes for him going into a contract year. Well, instead, he had his worst year of his career only tallying 31 receptions for 414 yards and a single touchdown.

It is highly unlikely the Bears decide to re-sign Mooney as his contract is up. Add in the Chase Claypool experiment and wide receiver is arguably the biggest need for this team this offseason regardless of who is playing quarterback.
