Shaheen is making the tricky transition from Division II college football to the NFL, but he’s a second-round pick. And high picks are expected to contribute immediately.
Shaheen has only one reception, a 2-yard touchdown catch, in eight games. That needs to change in a hurry, the story said. All the physical traits are there. Shaheen is 6-foot-5, 270 pounds, and perfectly built to catch passes inside the red zone. Granted, the Bears offense doesn’t reach the red zone all that often, but they should use Shaheen more when they do.
