Keenan Allen, WR - A-

Arguably the best move of the Bears' offseason thus far was the trade for Keenan Allen. The Bears sent their fourth-round pick to the Chargers in exchange for the 6x time Pro Bowler. Allen brings over 900 receptions and 10,530 career yards receiving to the Bears who desperately needed another player to compliment D.J. Moore. He instantly becomes the most decorated receiver in Bears' history.

Allen is 31 and the best years of his career are likely behind him at this point. However, he had the best year of his career last season with 108 receptions for 1,243 yards and seven touchdowns in just 13 games. He also only had six drops on 145 targets, per PFF. Allen is a young QB's best friend in that he is an elite route runner and creates separation for easier throws. He can also easily make contested catches with his 6' 2 frame. Allen may not run past anyone anymore with his age, but he will win single coverage battles with no problem.

Whether it is Justin Fields or Caleb Williams under center for the Bears next season, Allen is one of the best options you can add to an offense that already has Moore. These two should complement each other very well and make life on the QB much easier.
