How do the Chicago Bears cornerbacks stack up against the rest of the NFC North?

With the long break between OTAs and training camp, it is a good time to reflect on the status of the Chicago Bears roster. There will be little roster movement from this point moving forward so comparisons to their rivals can be done. Today we will compare the Chicago Bears cornerbacks to the rest of the NFC North.

4. Green Bay Packers: Kevin King, Jaire Alexander, Josh Jackson, Tramon Williams, Quenton Rollins, Davon House

The Green Bay Packers have a lot of upside here, but none of it has played out on the field quite yet. In Kevin King, Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson, they are hoping to get three top 50 picks on the field together from the past two drafts. That includes Alexander going in the first round and both Jackson and King having first round projections.

Still, this means relying on two rookies. In the future, this could be a group. Today, Jaire Alexander took a step back from a stellar sophomore season in 2017 and Josh Jackson is limited in terms of experience. King got limited time on the field last season and showed ups, but also proved that he is still a young player who cannot be trusted on paper yet.

Davon House and Tramon Williams are older veterans who are poised to help the young group grow. However, in the best case, neither is getting on the field often. Rollins was a former second-round pick who is looking like a miss at this stage of his career. The big three present upside, but it is all future projection rather than on-field play.
