Who are the top 18 players on the Chicago Bears 2020 roster?
We are counting down the days until the Chicago Bears kick off 2020 while counting down the most valuable players on the 2020 roster. This roster ranking has looked solely at the 2020 season, and which players are the most valuable to the Bears upcoming success.
We have just cracked open the 20, and are now looking into the number 18 and 17 overall players on our list.
18. Jimmy Graham
Jimmy Graham was a big signing. He is being paid like a top ten tight end, and the Bears likely value him in the same respect. We have known since Matt Nagy was hired that he values tight ends. He went out and added Trey Burton to Adam Shaheen and Dion Sims early into his tenure. Of course, Shaheen is the only name still here, and he was well outside the top 50 of this list.
Still, in 2020 Nagy gets a do-over, and he chose Graham. The Bears have safety nets in Cole Kmet, Demetrius Harris, and even Jesper Horsted, who flashed in the preseason. Still, if these three can compliment Graham, the tight end group can finally be what we have been waiting to see.
17. Bobby Massie
As the fan’s disgust for Bobby Massie grows, his value to the roster continues to grow by the year. On the surface, it is hard to justify a move up for Massie. He missed time last season and now comes in over the age of 30.
On the other hand, the Bears saw what happened without him in 2019. The right side of the line fell apart. They cannot have that again. Rashaad Coward and Alex Bars may be the backup right tackles, and neither has played an NFL snap at that position. Whether fans want to admit it or not, the Bears are heavily reliant on Bobby Massie bouncing back and having a good year. If he doesn’t, the ripple effects will show at many positions.
