Chicago Bears: 4 players whose stock dropped after two weeks of camp
Although unfair, Teven Jenkins’ stock has dropped for the Chicago Bears
This one might not be exactly true among the coaching staff and the organization, but Teven Jenkins missing all of training camp to this point is concerning. I am not saying that Jenkins was a bad pick or that he could be on his way out the door. That would be a ridiculous thought. I am not even ready to say that he is the next Chris Williams or Kevin White despite that being the fear of many fans right now. Unfortunately for Jenkins, his stock has dropped just from not being there.
I should point out that this is a different situation than the Germain Ifedi one. Ifedi is seeing his stock drop a little, but as a veteran who has played in the league for years, missing time in training camp is not as big of a deal as a rookie who is shifting from his more natural position as a right tackle to taking on the Chicago Bears blindside.
Matt Nagy has been trying to tell us not to be concerned because he is not. The problem I have with that is any offensive line needs to find and build on chemistry. Outside of the interior, this Chicago Bears offensive line has two new bookends. Not to mention, any rookie needs reps to start getting acclimated to game speed. I am here to tell you, we should all be very concerned. Ryan Pace better be looking into an insurance policy should Jenkins not be able to get healthy.
