How did the Chicago Bears 2017 draft class fare in year one?

The Chicago Bears rookie class will always be defined by Mitchell Trubisky. However, after year one, there is a decent vibe around the entire class, and with a new coaching staff, a lot of the talent could be in play.

Mitchell Trubisky

The big news is that Trubisky has a new head coach who is geared towards quarterbacks. He also has an offensive coordinator who ran a college offense. The Bears are getting progressive with Mitchell Trubisky. They are going to use his mobility to set up easier passing decisions for him, and are going to help him get the ball out of his hands quick. It is exciting to think what could happen next year with Trubisky.

Adam Shaheen

Adam Shaheen led the team in receiving touchdowns, albeit with just three. He was fourth on the depth chart in playing time at tight end though. He has a similar frame to Travis Kelce and could find a similar role coming into next year in a Matt Nagy offense.

Tarik Cohen

If Shaheen can be Travis Kelce, Tarik Cohen may already be Tyreek Hill. The dynamic ability with the ball in his hands is already there. Now, he has an offensive coordinator who is not afraid to put the ball in his hands. It could be a breakout year for Cohen more than any other Bears due to this new addition of offensive mind.

Jordan Morgan

Morgan missed the entire season after being placed on the Injured Reserve during training camp. While it is tough to fret his loss this year, the team is going to start needing him soon. They have decisions to make on Kyle Long, and Josh Sitton is not getting younger. If there is any year to be injured, it was last year. However, if it is a trend, it is going to be an issue and a miss on an otherwise strong class on offense.
