Let me take you back in time a little... The Bears traded on draft day in 2018 to move up and select Anthony Miller, they dealt away the 105th pick that year to the New England Patriots. This was a fourth-round pick, but it wasn't the only part of the deal. They also gave away the 56th pick of the 2019 draft, their future second-round pick. New England traded away that pick to Kansas City and at No. 56 in 2019 the Chiefs selected speed demon wide receiver, Mecole Hardman.

Miller was never able to quite live up to the hype and he never surpassed the 700-yard mark in his three seasons in Chicago.
However, here is a very interesting piece of information that was released by Dan Pompei of The Athletic.
«Not much was expected of Mooney as a rookie, as Robinson and Anthony Miller, a second-round pick the year before, were supposed to be the producers. But as miller drifted through meetings, Mooney kept raising his hand and asking pertinent questions. He started playing split end and took it upon himself to learn all three receiver spots. His diligence was rewarded with nine starts and 61 receptions, a Bears rookie record. What's more, he won the respect of teammates, as they voted him the winner of the Piccolo award.»

This is not surprising! We know just how amazing Darnell Monney's work ethic is. It's nice to hear another clear example of this.
