To say the offseason has been underwhelming thus far would not be a reach in the least bit. The Chicago Bears have not done a whole lot to try and help Justin Fields take the second-year leap.

However, that can all change in the blink of an eye. General manager Ryan Poles and his crew have a history of work in the NFL Draft and fans should fully expect the Bears to make a splash.

The Bears have two clear needs on the offensive side of the ball, between offensive line and wide receiver. If Fields is going to take a big step in 2022, those needs have to be met.

At the wide receiver position, Fields has Darnell Mooney entering Year 3 and has formed quite the bond with him. But, Mooney needs a running mate — could it come in the form of a first-round trade?

There are a handful of wide receivers the Chicago Bears should trade up for in the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Bears currently do not own a first-round pick this year, of course due to their trading for Fields a year ago. But, they do have a pair of second rounders and a third-round pick to work with.

Future draft capital may be toyed with if Poles has his eyes set on a can’t-miss prospect as well, and future draft capital can always be re-acquired — just as we’re talking about right now.

Guys like Garrett Wilson and Drake London are currently projected to go inside the first half of the first round, so count those guys out in terms of the Bears moving up. But, three other receivers, in particular, make a lot of sense for Chicago to go up and get.
