Last season the Chicago Bears wide receivers showed a lot of potential. Johnny Knox was a fifth round pick out of Abilene Christian and Devin Aromasohodu spent a couple seasons on the Indianapolis Colts practice squad.They both excelled when they had a chance and this season their expected to do big things.
Now the two receivers will be a big part of the offense. Devin Aromashodu appeared in 10 games last season making 24 catches for 298 yards and four touchdowns. Aromashodu didn’t get playing time until week 14 against Green Bay. Aromashodu put up big numbers that game. In, Week 16 against Minnesota, Aromashodu showed great potential by reeling in seven passes for 150 yards and the game winning touchdown in overtime.
The 26 year old Aromashodu, often goes by the name of D.A. or the “other Devin”, but this season he might become the best receiver named Devin for the Bears. FFToolbox.com ranks Devin Aromashodu as the highest Bears wide receiver at #34, they call Aromashodu a super sleeper which means he is a high risk or potential pick.
Johnny Knox on the other hand appeared in 15 games for the Bears. Knox actually took the spot of Devin Aromashodu during week one and showed his potential against Green Bay right from the start of the season. Knox caught 45 passes for 527 yards and five touchdowns. Knox also returned a kick for a touchdown and he showed great speed on kick returns that was he was named to the Pro Bowl.
A lot more is expected from Johnny Knox in his sophomore season.

The 24 year old Knox is ranked 49th on FFToolbox.com’s wide receiver list. Devin Hester is ranked 53rd behind both Devin Aromashodu and Johnny Knox.
