Bears select speedy WR with No. 173 pick


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears traded back into the fifth round and selected Tulane receiver Darnell Mooney with the 173th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Mooney is an athletic and speedy receiver that can fly around the field. At the NFL combine, he ran an impressive 4.38 40-yard dash.

In 2019, he caught 48 passes and had five touchdowns.

NFL Draft analyst Dane Brugler had the following take on Mooney.

"Mooney is tougher than he looks, but he must better control his dynamic athleticism to make it in the NFL as a consistent weapon."
