Top Wide Receiver Prospect Makes Strong Pitch to Play for Bears
It's not always easy to recruit players when you just posted the worst record in the NFL, but the Chicago Bears don't seem to have that problem.
Despite going 3-14 last year, the Bears have already impressed multiple high-profile prospects during the NFL Combine this week, including a wide receiver who sounds like he really wants to play for them.
WR Quentin Johnston said he would love to get the chance to play with Chicago QB Justin Fields. He also said that, if drafted, he'll immediately get to work and soak up as much as he can.
"I'm going in like a sponge," he said.
That's encouraging for the Bears to hear, especially since they need a wideout to give Fields a legitimate receiving threat. The TCU product would fit the bill nicely after racking up 1,062 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns last year for the Horned Frogs.
Even if Chicago ultimately passes on him, it seems like Johnston has the right mentality and is willing to do whatever it takes to improve as a player, which would make him a good fit wherever he ends up.
