Bears Expect Big Things From Devin Hester

In the third of nine position previews in advance of training camp, Darryl Drake discusses Bears wide receivers with senior writer Larry Mayer:

LM: Some outside the organization have criticized the Bears receivers. Mike Martz thinks that they’ll be a team strength. How do you feel about the receivers as a group?
DD: We’ve still got a ways to go, but we’re working hard on getting there. It is a talented group. Devin Hester has gotten better, and as he continues to grow, the sky’s the limit for him. I’ve been real pleased with Devin Aromashodu. He has done a tremendous job. He has really given is something extra there. He needs to continue to do that and continue to mature and grow. It’s the same with Johnny Knox. What we’re looking for out of all of them is consistency. We need consistency in knowing their assignments, being where they’re supposed to be and catching the football.

LM: Do you have any doubts that Hester can be an elite receiver?
DD: There’s no doubt in my mind that he can be. There’s no doubt in my mind that Aromashodu and Knox can be as well.
