With the NFL Draft and height of free agency in the rearview mirror, it is time to start looking ahead to the start of the 2021 season. The Bears made sure to address the wide receiver position by bringing back their No. 1 target Allen Robinson via the franchise tag.

Chicago enters the 2021 season looking to make the playoffs for the third time in the last four years. The offense will need to step up in order for that to happen and it starts with the pass-catchers.

Here's a look at the Bears' updated WR depth chart for 2021.

Bears WR Depth Chart 2021

1. Allen Robinson II

Allen Robinson has become one of the most reliable wide receivers in the NFL over the last few seasons. He hauled in a career-high 102 catches last season for 1,250 yards and 6 touchdowns. Robinson seems like a lock to see 150+ targets again this season as the Bears' top option in the passing attack.

2. Darnell Mooney

One player that exceeded expectations last year was Darnell Mooney. Mooney posted 632 receiving yards on 61 receptions and scored 4 touchdowns as a rookie. He regularly got open deep down the field using his crisp route-running abilities. It wouldn't be surprising to see him take on a larger role as he continues to develop his skills at the NFL level.

3. Anthony Miller

Anthony Miller has been a part of trade rumors for the last few months, but he remains one of the top candidates for the Bears' slot receiver position this year. He has a total of 1,564 receiving yards on 134 receptions over his first three NFL seasons. Miller will look to make a strong starting case in training camp.

4. Damiere Byrd

The Bears didn't make a major splash in free agency this offseason, but the team did sign WR Damiere Byrd to a one-year contract. Byrd spent last season with the New England Patriots and ended the year with 604 yards on 47 receptions. He is a perfect depth player to have on the roster and could stela playing time away from Miller.

5. Marquise Goodwin

6. Riley Ridley

7. Dazz Newsome

The Bears spent a sixth-round draft pick on former UNC wideout Dazz Newsome. The former Tar Heel finished his college career with 188 receptions, 2,435 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns across 43 games played. He has an outside shot to make the roster if he can showcase his talent in training camp.

8. Javon Wims

9. Chris Lacy
