Best NFL wide receiver trios: Where do the Bears stand?


Best NFL wide receiver trios: Where do the Bears stand? originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

No NFL offense is as different from last season as the Chicago Bears. Just a few years after fielding arguably the league's least productive wide receiver unit, Keenan Allen, DJ Moore and Rome Odunze are all ready to take the field for the Bears. And any of them could be considered WR1s on other teams.

By assembling an elite group of WRs this offseason, the Bears have skyrocketed in the rankings of which team has the best receiving unit in 2024. So much so that some experts believe the Bears' Big Three are the best in the league.

“With the Bears' decision to make a move at quarterback and select USC's Caleb Williams No. 1 overall, general manager Ryan Poles ensured his next signal-caller was well-equipped with the tools necessary to succeed,” wrote Bleacher Report's Brent Sobleski.

Sobleski rated the league's best WR trios as follows:

  1. Chicago Bears

  2. Seattle Seahawks

  3. Miami Dolphins

  4. Houston Texans

  5. Minnesota Vikings

Last year's WR1 for the Bears was Moore, who eclipsed 1,300 receiving yards and was essentially the Bears' only real threat on offense.

But now he has competition. Before the draft, the Bears traded for Allen, a six-time Pro Bowl receiver, to give their future rookie quarterback another reliable option.

To round out the triple, the Poles selected Odunze from Washington at No. 9 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft.

According to Josh Schrock, Bears insider reporter for NBC Sports Chicago, this may be the first time in history that the Bears are entering a season with the best WR trio in the league.
