Who are the top 30 valuable players on the Chicago Bears 2020 roster?
30. Trevis Gipson
Trevis Gipson is just a fifth-round pick and may have a higher floor in the NFL than he does ceiling. However, the Chicago Bears traded a future pick for him, so he better finds a way to make an impact for them.
Behind Khalil Mack and Robert Quinn, the argument should be made that Trevis Gipson needs to take those third rotational edge snaps in 2020. Gipson is at his best setting the edge and playing strong against the run. He can do a lot of his work on early downs, easing the workload of Robert Quinn.
Quinn is a vicious pass rusher but needs to be put on a pitch count to maximize his pass-rush effectiveness. This should make Gipson a valued asset sooner than later.
29. Kevin Toliver
2018 Rank: 47
Kevin Toliver is another player we have watched climb up our year-by-year rankings. From a fringe roster player to a depth asset, and now into the top 30. When the Bears drafted Jaylon Johnson in round two it was with the intentions he would start. However, he is a rookie in a weird offseason. If Johnson is not ready, the Bears have watched Toliver develop by getting him on the field late into the last two seasons.
Toliver has played well and shown progress in every step of his career. The Bears should feel confident knowing that he is the backup corner on the outside. If he does find himself starting, the Bears should feel as though they have a capable player as well.
