Ranking the Room: NFC North Wide Receivers
Where would the Chicago Bears receiver corps rank amongst the NFC North teams?
With the dead period of time where not much player movement is had, it is a good time to look through the depth charts of each team and find where the Chicago Bears hold up against the other teams in the NFC North. This series has ranked the quarterback rooms and running back rooms heading into the 2018 season. This edition will look at wide receivers.
4. Packers: Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Geronimo Allison, DeAngelo Yancey, J’Mon Moore, Equanimeous St. Brown
The Chicago Bears dominated the last spot in these rankings last year. However, with their upgraded offseason, the Packers now see themselves in consideration. This is not so much about Davante Adams. Adams has progressed every season and is becoming the relied on target in the offense.
Cobb is still steady, but each of his last two seasons saw declines in production. From there, it gets very skeptical in this receiving corps. Allison is a UDFA who has stepped in at times due to injuries at the position. He caught 23 passes last season but is not much of an impact player. Yancey hardly played as a rookie, and while he can stretch the field, there are questions as to whether or not he is a one-trick pony.
From there, J’Mon Moore and St. Brown are both later round rookies. Both have height and could be used for goal-line situations. However, Moore has a limited route tree, and St. Brown struggles to use his size. Both will be learning as rookies more than contributing. Overall Adams helps hold the group up, but the rest of the receivers drag him down to the bottom of the division.
