2. Incoming tight ends

The tight end is a vital component of the Chicago Bears offseason. In a perfect world, Cole Kmet, Jimmy Graham, and Demetrius Harris combine to play every meaningful snap in some combination.

In all likelihood, the team runs two tight end sets roughly 18-20% more than the season before. Harris will have a small role and has experience with Matt Nagy, so his transition will not bring concern.

For Graham, Matt Nagy has noted that he feels he was used in the wrong role and will be used differently. That involves a transition that would have been nice to have during this OTA session.

For Cole Kmet, it is always hard for rookie tight ends to adjust to the NFL. Now, it is even more amplified. These are two key components that were not in the offense last year and now have to adjust to new roles and big jumps without any offseason.
