The 2015 NFL Draft saw two top receivers taken very early on and the two were expected to begin a battle as rookies.
The Oakland Raiders used their fourth overall pick on Amari Cooper, who has had one hell of a rookie campaign, winning two Rookie of the Week awards already this season.
The receiver expected to challenge Cooper as the best of the 2015 draft class was Kevin White, who was selected by the Chicago Bears at number seven. He has had a completely different time of things to Cooper, but is finally set to return to practice for the Soldier Field franchise.

According to a tweet from Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears will be bringing the exciting prospect back onto the practice field after injury.
White was placed on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list by Chicago after having surgery to repair a stress fracture that the receiver suffered in his left leg during the offseason.
Bringing White back to practice today lets the Bears decide whether they want to officially add him to the 53-man roster. If White wasn't at practice today then he would automatically go on Injured Reserve and be lost for the season. Now, the Bears have a 21-day period to decide if the youngster can play.
Big Things Expected
White was expected to come in straight away and be a pretty big part of a Bears offense that was missing Brandon Marshall, who was traded to the New York Jets in something of a shock move.
The former West Virginia standout would have been used greatly had he been fit, with both Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal both struggling badly from injuries throughout the entire 2015 season.
