Chicago Bears WR Velus Jones was praised by offensive coordinator Luke Getsy for his work in meetings. Getsy also noted that Jones is ready for the NFL. ''He's a physically mature dude. I mean he can handle this league, you can see that already. Then the speed just jumped at you on the tape. When that guy gets the ball in his hands, he looks like 4.3 on the field. Not many guys can do that.''
Huddle Up: With the Bears' wide-open situation at wide receiver going into 2022, there's a path for Jones to carve out a role for himself. However, until we see that happen he isn't a viable option in season-long leagues and is merely a bench stash in dynasty formats.

Tennessee WR Velus Jones was selected by the Chicago Bears with the 71st overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: The Bears don't have a lot of firepower in their receiving corps, but while Jones could deliver an occasional splash play, he is unlikely to deliver consistent production any time soon.
