If he's #4, then the Bears paid Patterson 5M to be a KR in a league that's minimizing that as fast as possible?


This team has plenty of speed and the WR's are plenty fast.

Give me guys that run routes, move the chains and have decent speed all day long vs speed burners with poor routes and average hands all day long.

If you are stuck on 40 times he ran 4.46 and 4.52 at his pro day. Plenty fast.


Where are you finding that?
Draft Scout is normally incredibly comprehensive and they have no Pro Day metrics for him.

During Georgia's Pro Day, wide receiver Riley Ridley chose not to test, instead choosing to stand pat on his numbers at the NFL Scouting Combine. Three weeks ago, the 6-foot-1 200-pound wide receiver ran an official 40-yard dash time of 4.58 sessions, turned in a vertical leap of 30.5 inches, and ran the 20-yard shuttle in 4.28. Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Ridley said that he had no plans to test again.

"I did not consider running the 40," Ridley said. "I felt what I put out at the combine is what I put out and I was happy about it.

Sorry was looking at projected. They had it in the same article talking about the combine 40 I was reading but I didn't gather it was projected..

That's what I was thinking. A bit of a head scratcher, although if somebody gets hurt in camp, then it's the obvious cover up.

Maybe Wims finally makes the long awaited move to TE?


This.


If he can learn to block he seems freakishly big for a WR.


Imagine Biscuit in the shotgun formation with 3 wide and Wims as a TE with Montgomery in the backfield. Who covers Wims? Have fun defending that.

This offense is going to be scary.

Is he big enough to play TE? I just saw 6'4 220 unless he's bulked up.

I don’t know if he can play TE, I just hope Ridley didn’t cost Wims a roster spot.

I'm guessing he can probably be on PS again or just be like Kevin White last year and healthy scratch every week

This pick makes sense to me because, statistically, he's the type of receiver Mitch likes. Smaller with nice routes.

In his year as starter at North Carolina, his go to was Ryan Switzer. 5'8" 180lbs.

His rookie year, his go to was Kendall Wright. 5'10" 185lbs.(Granted, that year he was the only wideout to play all 16 games)

This past year, 5'8" 160lbs Turbo Garbriel led wideouts in catches. Only Tarik had more than him.

It was not a position I thought we needed to focus on, so it left me scratching my head. I like what I see on tape, and I love a big guy with wide catch radius that runs good routes. In the end a team is always benefited by a good possession WR like that. When he gets to contribute is murky to me.

Of those of you mentioning the possibility of Wims moving to TE, is he physically capable of handling a move like that in your opinions?

This pick puzzled me too. I understand he was the "best on the board by far" according to Pace. But it seems like with our depth at WR and our lack of picks it might have been prudent to trade down for a couple of extra picks and get some safety, TE, or OL help instead.

Looking at the remainder of R4 and all of R5, I can honestly say there wasn't a player available that was a better value than Ridley. Maybe Deionte Thompson. But there wasn't an offensive lineman I would have taken. As far as TE goes, Raymond was my highest rated TE at that point and the Bears got him as a UDFA.

This really was a BPA situation. Most had Ridley as a mid 2nd to early 3rd.
