Who are the 20th and 19th most valuable players on the 2020 Chicago Bears roster?
We have made it all the way through to the final 20. After ranking the roster from 90-21, we have hit the prime players who will have a serious influence on how this upcoming season will go. With that in mind, who are the 20th and 19th ranked players on our list?
20. Tashaun Gipson
The Bears signed two players who cracked the top 30 on their most valuable list after the 2020 NFL draft. I am not sure if that is a good or bad thing, but it does appear that they were able to find a starting safety across Eddie Jackson post-draft in Tashaun Gipson.
The signing was needed as we. Although the Bears have depth at safety, they do not have much talent. Deon Bush, DeAndre Houston-Carson, Jordan Lucas, and Sherrick McManis were all in line to compete for the starting safety spot, but none would leave the Bears as comfortable as Gipson.
19. Mitch Trubisky
2018 Ranking: Number 4
Admittedly, this was the hardest player to rank on the entire list. While some will argue his past rankings were too high, the fact is that the team went as he went. As the fourth most valuable in 2018, he had some downs, but his ups led to elite play from the Bears. Last year, the team went as he went as well, although it was not the direction he wanted.
Some will say Mitch Trubisky is too high, and that the week one starter is still a top ten asset. Others will say he should no longer be a top 20 player if he is not a starter. The reality is he is likely to start at least a few games at some point this season. The Bears will need him to play well, although the moves they made this offseason suggest that he no longer is deserving of his top five ranking from years past.
