You and every defensive coordinator in the NFL are well aware of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery . Perhaps you're less familiar with Marquess Wilson, a tall, strong, explosive, 21-year-old receiver who the Bears want as their No. 3 wideout to start this season. According to Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago, it sounds like that is going to happen barring something unforeseen
Wright wrote today that the No. 3 job is Wilson's to lose, and he won't lose it unless he "falters significantly in camp and in the preseason ...."
You might remember Marshall praising Wilson for his work during OTAs back in April. His re-draft value is only as a late-round stash. He should have his moments since Bears should be throwing it a lot this season -- and defenses will be doing whatever they can to not let Marshall and Jeffery beat them -- but Chicago already has four or five pairs of hands in front of Wilson in the pecking order for targets. Wilson is a future stock, someone dynasty leaguers should be eager to get their hands on. Although Marshall just signed a three-year extension through 2017, he is entering his age-30 season. Wilson could be his heir apparent and really take off in a couple of years.
