2. What do the Chicago Bears think of Tyler Scott after one year?

Tyler Scott had a non-descript rookie season. On one side, that was expected. Scott was supposed to be a fourth wide receiver at best, and he was supposed to be shifting from a primary outside option to a slot receiver. Then, this year, he would slide in for Darnell Mooney. 

Most of that happened, but there is a stronger feeling that the Bears should just keep Scott as depth and upgrade both starting wide receiver spots as well. That is because Scott did get opportunities and did not do well. Chase Claypool got traded, Equanimeous St. Brown got hurt, and Velus Jones was a bust. Still, Scott made little impact and at times was losing snaps to Trent Taylor. 

The Bears could think that Scott was playing outside after they asked him to learn the slot all year. Darnell Mooney did not get hurt, and that is who he is replacing. Or they could be thinking that he was an outside threat, so how can they trust him in the slot if he cannot win anywhere? 

The Bears need a starter in the slot. Do they sign one in free agency or draft one, or is that starter Tyler Scott? We will find out soon enough just how confident they are after a down rookie season.
