The Chicago Bears’ trade for former 2019 first-round pick N’Keal Harry wasn’t enough to fix their questionable wide receiver situation. Still, it at least added another talented player to a position group plagued by more questions than answers.
One thing that’s certain is that the Bears’ running game — yes, the running game — got better after the trade.
Harry’s ability as a run blocker will give him an advantage over players like Equanimeous St. Brown on the depth chart. The Chicago Bears will lean heavily on running backs David Montgomery and Khalil Herbert in 2022. And with quarterback Justin Fields’ ability as a runner, having receivers like Harry blocking downfield will help the offense unlock its ground attack.
