The Chicago Bears finished 2019 with a .500 record, but the team has upgraded these five positions heading into 2020.
When the Chicago Bears went into the 2019 season, some ego may have kept them from succeeding the same way as they did in 2018. With most of the players returning from the prior year, most (including myself) figured the team would dominate once again. Unfortunately, the 2019 season exposed some cracks in the armor.
Right now, the team has question marks, but that does not mean they have major holes. When we look at the starting roster, only cornerback stands out as a possible hole on defense, but even that position could be better than most think. At least when it comes to the starters on the depth chart. Inside linebacker and safety are a big concern when it comes to depth though.
On the offensive side of the ball, running back depth is an issue. If David Montgomery goes down, do you think Tarik Cohen and Ryan Nall are the answer? Personally, I do not. Outside of the backfield, the offensive line is a big question mark too.
When it comes to the 2020 season, the Chicago Bears have come out swinging with what little firepower they had. The team landed the top tight end prospect in the draft with its first pick in the second-round and a projected first-round talent at cornerback with its second pick in the second round. Free agency was tough with limited cap space, but Ryan Pace worked some magic and brought in the right time of guys. These four positions have seen an upgrade for 2020.
