Every team expects a lot out of their top picks in the NFL draft, but they won't be the only rookies who contribute in Year 1. There will be first-year players who emerge as valuable starters or key role players at some point this season.

The NFL Wire network went team by team and selected one rookie who could be a pleasant surprise in 2022, highlighting players on an upward trajectory.
For the Chicago Bears, they listed a very explosive wide receiver.
Bears: WR Velus Jones Jr.
While second rounders cornerback Kyler Gordon and safety Jaquan Brisker are poised to make an immediate impact as rookies, it's third-round receiver Velus Jones Jr. who could wind up surprising everyone. Outside of Darnell Mooney, the Bears don't have a proven commodity at receiver, which gives Jones an opportunity to make a strong impression. With his blazing 4.31 speed and run-after-the-catch ability, Jones has the potential to become a dangerous weapon in Luke Getsy's offense and give quarterback Justin Fields a dynamic option in the passing game. – Alyssa Barbieri, Bears Wire
