Chicago Bears Players Whose Stock Fell: Kindle Vildor

This is another shocking one to see I am sure. Just like Damien Williams, I do not believe that Kindle Vildor’s play on Saturday will affect his depth chart positioning. However, we should keep an eye on him early in the season.

I had Duke Shelley on this list last week and a big part of that was because Shelley had too much space between him and the wide receiver at times, allowing for easy receptions. He stuffed the stat sheet with tackles, but that doesn’t tell the whole story. Well, Vildor seemed to be that guy too often this week. He only had three tackles (granted on limited snaps), but he looked slow and out of place too often. Hopefully, we can chalk this up to “high school Harry defensive play“.

Artie Burns on the other hand has looked solid in his limited action and I think he can push Kindle Vildor for starting reps. Don’t forget, Burns was slotted to start the season as the CB2 last year before going down with an ACL injury. I don’t believe he would have held onto the job because Jaylen Johnson is too talented, but now that Kyle Fuller is gone, he definitely could fill that role.

Many people reading this will not like to hear this take, but Kindle Vildor is too inconsistent for me and we saw this again versus the Bills. He shows flashes constantly but then gives up a big play. He has the potential, but can he harness it is the question.
