Chicago Bears offensive trenches

Cole Kmet is the sole tight end on the roster for the 2023 season, making the 2020 2nd-round pick fill a crucial role in Nagy’s offense that has seen the likes of Trey Burton, Jimmy Graham and Demetrius Harris brought in to fill the role. Finding a tight end that can double as an H-back and “Y” tight end, someone capable of blocking on the end of the line, is the type of versatile athlete Nagy desires for his RPO-driven offense.

Pace put a true emphasis on strengthening the trenches by drafting Oklahoma State tackle Teven Jenkins and Missouri tackle Larry Borom to infuse youth into an aging group. UDFA Sam Mustipher proved last season that he is more than capable of being the center of the future after Cody Whitehair and James Daniels played “tag” at center.

Both Whitehair and Daniels are slotted to play either guard positions, leaving Jenkins, Borom, Germain Ifedi and Arlington Hambright to round out the depth on a younger, mauler-dominant offensive line. Watch out for 2021 UDFA Daruean Parker of Mississippi State to make an impact as well. Ifedi will not likely be here in 2023 though, so expect a few additional changes.
