The Chicago Bears enter the 2020 NFL Draft with a vast array of offensive problems to solve. One of those issues is at wide receiver, where the Bears need more help for Mitchell Trubisky or Nick Foles, whichever they decide to go with at the starting quarterback in 2020.

Currently, the Bears have two second-round draft choices after trading away their first-round choice in the Khalil Mack deal. One would imagine at least one of those choices, at No. 43 and No. 50 overall, would be spent on a wide receiver.

Here are three potential wide receivers that the Bears can take in the second round.

1. Chase Claypool

Chase Claypool was a dominant force for Notre Dame last year, tallying 1,037 yards and 13 touchdowns. That season significantly raised his draft stock, and he now projects as an early second-round pick. The 6-foot-4-inch receiver has great pass-catching and route-running skills. He projects as an elite possession receiver who can play outside and in the slot. Claypool also contributes on special teams. With the Bears in desperate need of a No. 2 receiver, Claypool can make an immediate impact.

2. Denzel Mims

Denzel Mims may not be available when the Bears are picking at No. 43, but he's certainly worth grabbing if he is. Mims had a great career at Baylor, topping 1,000 yards twice. His unique combination of finesse and catching ability make him a potential superstar. Mims has a lower floor than the top-tier receiver prospects that are ahead of him, but the Bears would be in perfect position to take a chance on a potential No. 1 receiver in the second round.

3. Jalen Reagor

Jalen Reagor is a "burner" in every sense of the word. His 2018 season at TCU was better than 2019, but he was stuck with an awful quarterback play. Reagor ran a 4.47 40-yard dash and was a standout return specialist in college. The Bears could use more speed across their roster, and Reagor can provide that in spades. While he doesn't quite have the consistency of some of the other wide receivers in the draft, he could be a great fit for the Bears at No. 50 overall in that offense.
