2012 NFL Mock Draft: Todd McShay of ESPN Projects Baylor WR Kendall Wright To Bears

The Chicago Bears and new general manager Phil Emery are no doubt focused on finding an impact player in the 2012 NFL Draft, and Todd McShay of ESPN believes the Bears will target a wide receiver in the first round for the first time since 2001 -- when they selected disappointing WR David Terrell at No. 8 overall. This time around McShay believes Emery use the No. 19 pick to provide Jay Cutler with Baylor Bears wide receiver Kendall Wright, a "versatile speedster who can threaten defenses vertically and is dangerous after the catch."
