Bears GM Ryan Poles Builds Strong WR Corps to Support Caleb Williams as Franchise QB

Bears GM Ryan Poles has assembled a rugged WR corps that should help Caleb Williams hit the ground running as a franchise quarterback. The No. 1 overall pick will toss to a three-headed monster at wideout with the collective size, strength, route-running ability and ball skills to help him put up a 4,000-yard season in Year 1. DJ Moore, Keenan Allen and Rome Odunze display complementary superpowers that fit together like Voltron.

Unlike Voltron, though, there is nothing robotic about the games of Moore, Allen and Odunze, who each possess different skills as playmakers that will test opposing defensive backfields. As a catch-and-run specialist with big-play potential, Moore is at his best catching the ball on the move on underneath routes. He ranked 11th in in the NFL in yards after the catch (539) while accounting for the sixth-most receiving first downs (64) and logging the fourth 1,000-yard season of his career.

Allen remains an unstoppable force on the perimeter as a premier route runner with a crafty game. The veteran dazzles as a creative possession receiver with a bag of tricks that keeps defenders guessing on critical downs. He has topped the 100-catch mark in five of the last seven seasons and averaged six touchdowns per season during that span.

As the seasoned pros impart their knowledge and wisdom on Odunze, the rookie with a polished game could quickly emerge as a dominant WR3 with the potential to make his mark as a chameleon (serving as a chain mover or big-play specialist) on the perimeter based on matchups. Add in Cole Kmet, who caught 81.1 percent of the balls thrown his way (73 receptions on 90 targets) for a career-high 719 yards with six TDs last season, and it’s clear Williams will be working with a pass-catching crew most rookie QBs could only dream of.
