Bears GM Ryan Poles has a crazy quote about drafting this wide receiverVincent Pariseon May 3, 2022 at 11:00 am

The Chicago Bears did not draft a wide receiver or an offensive lineman in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft (they did not have a first-round pick). Instead, they had more of a best player available mentality and shored up their defensive secondary.

As a result, there were some people very upset with the draft despite the fact that the players that they took in the second round are very good. They will be very happy when they see Kyler Gordon and Jaquan Briskey play one day.

In the third round, however, the Chicago Bears finally drafted a wide receiver. They took Velus Jones Jr. out of the University of Tennessee. After the draft, Ryan Poles had a very important quote on why that decision was made:

“We watched tape together this past weekend and Jones was on the list. We watched players and I want to be able to communicate with my quarterback so he understands from me where we are going. “

This is a very important quote from the new general manager. He makes it clear that he values Justin Fields’ opinion on stuff. That is the way that it should be since the quarterback is essential to winning in the National Football League.

Justin Fields is someone that can change the fortunes of this franchise if he reaches his true potential in the NFL. Giving him good receivers is something that can help him reach that ceiling that we know he can reach.

Velus Jones Jr. is going to be a great fit with the Chicago Bears going forward.

Bears third-round pick Velus Jones Jr. said of new teammate Justin Fields: “He doesn’t have a ceiling on him. A true talent. I can’t wait to receive balls from him.”

Fields had Velus Jones Jr. on his list with Ryan Poles. It is good to know that the love is reciprocated by Velus. He was quoted saying that he is excited to be on the same turf as Fields. Hopefully, he is right about the things that he thinks about his new quarterback.

This should be good (if Velus Jones Jr. turns out to be great) for the rest of the weapons on the team as well. Darnell Mooney is going to be the wide receiver that leads the way in 2022 which could really help Velus. Cole Kmet and David Montgomery should really help this offense as well.

Developing Justin Fields is the biggest key for this team. Landing a wide receiver that he is happy with is a big win for the Bears. He is the one that is going to be leading the way going forward so making him happy (and feeling good) is incredibly important.
