Chicago Bears Round 2: Jaquan Brisker
For all of the positive growth from Kylelr Gordon, we have seen a lot of negative regression from Jaquan Brisker. His rookie season was much better than what he is doing right now.
To start, injuries have impacted him. He had to leave four games in the first five weeks with different issues. Then, he missed weeks eight and nine. All of the while, he has hardly been practicing since the summer.
Brisker has had issues since. He missed a tackle and gave up a 45-yard reception to Michael Strachan in week 10, his first game back. He had a few bad tackling reps against Las Vegas and had big gains allowed to TJ Hockenson, Antonio Gibson, and Samaje Perine when he was on the field.
The missed tackles have popped up recently, but the blown coverage assignments have lingered all year. PFF grades are not everything, but they have him at 57.9 grade, which is down from 67. Also, he is down from 65 in coverage to 49.3. That is about right, as his coverage is dragging his overall play down.
Jaquan Brisker Grade: D+
