This offseason, there has been no more scrutinized group on the Chicago Bears roster than at wide receiver.

Ryan Poles took over a roster that is, without a doubt, amidst a rebuild. He inherited just a couple of notable wide receivers still under contract: Darnell Mooney and Dazz Newsome.

But, the Bears’ free agents included Allen Robinson, Jakeem Grant, Damiere Byrd and Marquise Goodwin — all of whom did indeed leave Chicago. Replacing Robinson as the number one option seemed like the clear-cut priority in that group.

But, the Bears didn’t exactly go out and make a splash.

Predicting the Chicago Bears’ depth at wide receiver is a bit murky at this point.

The Bears were thought to be in the market for a second round wide receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft. But, even after not totally addressing the position in free agency, the Bears did not go wide receiver in that round which they held two picks.

As fans know, Poles and the Bears didn’t even go offense with either picks. Instead, it was a young, dynamic duo in the secondary. While addressing that weakness with two excellent players was a big win, the Bears were still in a tough spot at wideout.

Following the draft, the Bears signed veterans Dante Pettis and Tajae Sharpe to go with the other veterans they had signed in Equanimeous St. Brown and David Moore.

With several lower-tier names and a couple of mid-tier players, how will the depth chart shake out? The following prediction is based on the Bears keeping a total of six wide receivers. Let’s dive in.
