Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

There are certainly other needs for the team: LT/LG, CB and future replacements for their aging DE/LB’s. If Kirkpatrick were available, he’d be a Bear because he fits their base Cover-2 Zone perfectly. They need an eventual replacement at DE but I see projects rather than playmakers on the board. Jonathan Martin(OT) was the only consideration other than Wright. It would come down to Lovie and Tice deciding if he can do it better than Webb in their new system and if they want to sink another first round pick into the OL to make it three in a row (didn’t have 1st or 2nd picks in 09 or 10).

Even with the signing of Marshall and their RB solidified, they need another weapon. Currently filling the role is Bennett, Hester and an unused TE (in Martz’s old system). Wright would be able to step in immediately, line up anywhere, and give Cutler another legit homerun threat. For four years in college, Baylor looked for anyway possible to get the ball into his hands (WR/TE/RB). Look for the Bears to do the same his rookie season to keep defenses guessing (think Percy Harvin with better deep skills). Marshall/Wright/Forte is scary for any defense.

Kendall Wright Highlights:

Joe Goodberry's Instant Analysis:

Bears decide to load up at WR with Kendall Wright lining up opposite newly acquired Brandon Marshall. Ideal situation for both players as Wright should help alleviate coverage from Marshall and provide Jay Cutler with another target. Great fit.
