After trading Brandon Marshall away this offseason, the Chicago Bears needed to add more weapons to the outside to go along with Alshon Jeffrey.
Assuming he will be catching balls from Jay Cutler, the addition of White was much needed and the combination of him and Jeffrey will be dangerous to opposing defenses. With all of that being said, that Chicago defense was horrid last year. New head coach John Fox will have his hands full fixing that squad, so that is why this selection won’t get an A- grade. It has nothing to do with White, instead everything to do with the needs of that defense.
However, it’s hard to pass up a talent like White. Safe pick for the Bears.
