Draft Watch: Late First-Round Receivers For Bears

With a late round draft pick in the first round the Chicago Bears are going to have to wait and see who is available at the 30th pick. So instead of targeting a few specific players, the Bears will target clusters of players.

It's likely the Bears will focus on improving their offensive line and wide receivers before they look to address other team needs. With this week's Senior Bowl practices wrapping up, the Bears should have good scouting reports on some of the top receivers in the senior class.

The top two receivers, Julio Jones and A.J. Green, won't be available when the Bears pick. Mike Wilkening, Senior Editor of Pro Football Weekly, joined the Mully and Hanley Show to talk about a group of receivers the Bears could target.

Wilkening On Titus Young, Boise State:

"I think has a had a real nice week. He's a guy that I think has helped himself. [He's] really explosive. He's stepped up and had a good week."

Young's 2010 Stats: REC 71, YDS 1,215, TD 9

Wilkening On Vincent Brown, San Diego State:

"I don't know if he's a first round guy, per say. Run after the catch ability. Very good hands. He's a guy taht has flashed this week

Brown's 2010 Stats: REC 69, YDS 1,352, TD 10

Wilkening On Ronald Johnson, USC:

"I think he's had a nice week. Real smooth route runner. A very good run after the catch guy."

Johnson's 2010 Stats: REC 64, YDS 692, TD 8

Wilkening On Leonard Hankerson, Miami (FL):

"Kind of a big, physical receiver. I think he plays fast. He's a guy that really stands out, a big target. You look for flashes [at the Senior Bowl]. And he's a guy that has flashed. I think he looks, to me, like a pro guy that's going to make it at the next level."

Hankerson's 2010 Stats: REC 72, YDS 1,156, TD 13
