Who are the 32nd and 31st most valuable players on the 2020 Chicago Bears?
As we inch closer towards training camp, we continue our ranking of the top Chicago Bears on 2020 roster. We are looking at them through a lens of value in the 2020 season only. We have gone from 90 all the way down to the top 32 players. Who just cracked the top 32?
32. Deon Bush
As the years have gone by, we have learned exactly what the Chicago Bears think of Deon Bush. When Adrian Amos left, they added HaHa Clinton-Dix, and when he left, they added Tashaun Gipson. They never left it in the hands-on Deon Bush.
To be fair, he ranks 32nd because as a third safety, he presents value. We do not know how the Gipson addition will go, and the backup to Eddie Jackson has value. Beyond that, Deon Bush is trusted on special teams and will be an important member of the team.
Last Year: 31
31. Darnell Mooney
Some people are going to call this too high, but this is the type of impact that Mooney can have if he hits the ground running. Mooney tore up at Tulane and showed to be an NFL athlete on tape. Beyond that, he profiles as a direct Taylor Gabriel, or a player who compared to Travis Benjamin on the field.
The Bears drafted Riley Ridley at a higher draft slot, but many noted this draft class was much deeper. Beyond that, the Bears traded up for Mooney, spending more overall to take him. Mooney has to beat out Ted Ginn, but in drafting Ginn and signing Mooney it shows the Bears are looking to replace Gabriel, and keep Ridley and Wims in their depth roles. If Mooney can beat Ginn out by the end of the year, this ranking will feel low. Look out for Mooney.
