The Chicago Bears’ wide receiver core struggled in 2019. They look to bounce back in 2020 with a similar depth chart.
There will be plenty of battles for various wide receiver positions on the Chicago Bears before the 2020 NFL season. The Bears have a deep core of solid wide receivers that could be fighting to even stay on the team.
There are obviously a few players who are shoe-ins to make the roster such as Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller, but the overall depth chart could fall in any way. It all just depends on how Matt Nagy wants to run his offense and what core of wide receivers he wants in there.
It even depends on how Nagy feels about certain players. Is Riley Ridley just a slot receiver, or can he play anywhere? The same goes for Miller, can he play anywhere? In this article, I’m going to put on my hat (or a visor if I’m Nagy) and with my knowledge decided who I want to keep on the roster and who I want to cut when the roster gets slimmed down after preseason.
This wide receiver core in Chicago has the potential to be one of the best and deepest wide receiver cores in the NFL. It is all about maximizing their skills and playing them in the right positions along with them maturing more and more. Everyone in their wide receiver core is under the age of 26 (outside of Ted Ginn). They still need to learn more and pick things up if they want to be a great core.
