Chicago Bears wide receiver DJ Moore wasted no time in developing a connection with new teammate and quarterback Caleb Williams.

Moore has been working out with Williams for much of the past month and he's already seeing the major difference with the new starting quarterback for the Bears as opposed to Justin Fields. While speaking with Kay Adams this week, Moore highlighted Williams' anticipation as what sets him apart from other quarterbacks he has played with.

Caleb Williams' strength is Justin Fields' biggest weakness.

One of the biggest limitations that Fields had during his three-year run as the Bears' starting quarterback is that he did not throw with anticipation. Given the talent that Fields had at Ohio State while in college, throwing with anticipation was never something he had to do considering the separation that Buckeyes' wide receivers created while the offensive line allowed Fields the time to see the play develop.

At the NFL level, what separates good college quarterbacks apart from good quarterbacks at the NFL level is the ability to anticipate the play develop. Admittedly, the lack of development from Fields in that respect is not entirely on the 2021 first-round pick. The Bears had a bottom-of-the-barrel wide receiver unit combined with an offensive line that was a revolving door during Fields' rookie season.

Having said that, as the talent improved around Fields, there wasn't a step forward for Fields in terms of his development as a passing quarterback.

Bears fans will see the first glimpse of that anticipation from Williams this weekend at Halas Hall. Williams, along with the rest of the Bears' 2024 NFL Draft class, including wide receiver Rome Odunze, will be on the field this weekend for the team's rookie mini-camp.
