Though some may argue that the Bears have their third wide receiver on the sorer already in Marquess Wilson but Wilson hasn’t shown anything, yet. Add the fact that Brandon Marshall is entering the last year of his contract and Alshon Jeffery has only two years left on his and it would be no surprise if the Bears took a wide receiver in the NFL draft if the right guy falls. Enter ex-Colorado wide receiver Paul Richardson, a potential third rounder.
Richarson is lanky 6’0 3/8”, 175 lb and ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper says of Richardson “if he can fill out that frame and get a little stronger, could be an interesting guy”. This makes him Bears general manager Phil Emery’s interesting kind of guy. Emery has a background as a strength and conditioning coach likes to take prospects who have the right frame but appear to need work in the weight room in the draft, including former first round pick Shea McClellin and second round wide receiver Jeffery.
Richardson may be a guy to keep an eye on especially if he falls into the mid-rounds.
