Biggs: Deep WR Draft Class Perfect For Bears

(WSCR) If the Bears are looking to bring in a big target for Jay Cutler to throw to, this is the year to do it.

This year’s wide receiver draft class is one of the deepest in recent memory, and some NFL mock drafts have the Bears selecting the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Michael Floyd out of Notre Dame with the 19th-overall pick.

“When you’re in need of a position, you certainly want it to be stocked with depth,” Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune and National Football Post told The Mully and Hanley Show. “That’s what the wide receiver position is right now. I’m not saying there is going to be four Pro Bowlers in this draft class, but right now, it looks like you’re going to have some guys to choose from, not just as No. 19, but in round two and round three.”

The Bears have four picks in the first three rounds, thanks to the pick they acquired from Carolina in exchange for tight end Greg Olsen — something that could prove to be beneficial for the Bears.

“This is a situation where, if the Bears like a couple of guys, they certainly have the means to go out there and use multiple picks on the position, if there are guys there that they really covet,” Biggs said.

    I’m actually concerned that the depth of the WR class will translate into the Bears’ feeling that much more comfortable taking a WR in the second or third round. Granted, Emery is new so who knows, but I just wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t take a WR in the first round (not saying that they should necessarily either).

    I would like to see Floyd still there at 19, but actually I feel a FA WR is the best route as we need an experienced Top WR now and a Top Free Agent has no if’s, wheras a draft choice is always a risk. I am talking about a Top WR FA not another Williams type though, and that would free us up to take a DE with that No. 19 pick and a WR in the second rd. since this draft is WR laden or vice versa, Buy a Top DE and still go with the WR at 19, but I feel we need experience in Free Agency as our Def. is getting old and won’t carry us any farther after next year. This is an important draft for Emery and buying a Top Free Agent would sure help him gain status in his first draft
