Chicago Bears Depth Chart 2018 Bears Depth Chart

9-4, 1st NFC North

vs GB

6:00 pm UTC, 12/16

The tides are turning in Chicago, and the Bears have one of the biggest turnovers in football heading into 2018. One of the bigger offseason acquisitions was Chicago landing Allen Robinson, giving them something they have lacked since the Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall days, which is a true WR1. While he is coming off a severe injury, there is a lot of promise for Robinson here. Chicago also signed Taylor Gabriel, who was used as a speed threat in Atlanta the prior season. Chicago also drafted Anthony Miller after drafting some more important needs. Miller won’t make a huge impact in year one with how Chicago will run their offense, but is someone to keep an eye on. The Bears did not stop there, adding Trey Burton who was stuck behind Zach Ertz in Philly. There is potential for Burton to be a breakout tight end this season, but targets still are a question. Mitchell Trubisky has some new weapons to jumpstart his NFL career. We expect Chicago to still run the ball a decent amount, as Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen both have their sole purpose in the offense. Cohen broke out as a receiving back, while Howard continues to be a guy they trust for high volume.

Chicago Bears 2018 Depth Chart Analysis

The Chicago Bears are one of the most iconic franchises in the NFL, but they have failed to make the playoffs for seven straight seasons. The Bears may have only won five games in 2017, but they gave their fans some hope for the future. The teams looks like they are on the right track thanks to the hiring of a new coach, several key free agent acquisitions and the development of a potential franchise quarterback. The Chicago Bears will enter the 2018 season with a new head coach after hiring Matt Nagy in the offseason. This will be Nagy's first head coaching job after spending the last two seasons as the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs. Despite his lack of experience, there is a lot to like about the Nagy hiring. His uptempo spread offense turned Alex Smith into one of the most effective quarterbacks in the league. Matt Nagy's quick strike offense is the exact opposite of the slow smash mouth tactics employed by John Fox. The new offense will allow the Bears to get the most out of quarterback Mitch Trubisky and Tarik Cohen.

Mitch Trubisky showed a lot of promise last season with one of the worst wide receiver corps in the NFL. He was often forced to dump passes to running backs or scramble because the receivers could not get open. That will definitely not be a problem in 2018 thanks to the signings of Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel. Robinson is a physical receiver that can get open at any time. Gabriel may be the fastest player in the league, so he will be a huge deep threat. Both of these players said they signed with the Bears to get the chance to play with Trubisky in Matt Nagy's system. The Bears will also have a new starting tight end in 2018. Zach Miller has been the centerpiece of the offense the last few years, but his career is likely over after suffering a gruesome injury last year. Trey Burton will have no problem replacing Miller's production. Burton was a dynamic part of the Philadelphia offense, and he will finally get a chance to play every snap. .

.

Chicago did not make many changes to their defense in the offseason, but the unit should still be improved over last year. The biggest addition to the defense is Roquan Smith. The inside linebacker was drafted out of Georgia with the 8th overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. Smith's speed and football intelligence make him a tackling machine. This will be a huge upgrade over Pernell McPhee. Since they did not lose any big contributors, the Chicago defense should continue to frustrate offenses in 2018. The Chicago Bears are going to be vastly improved in 2018, but it will still be hard for them to make the playoffs in the stacked NFC. If Mitch Trubisky and the other young stars continue to improve, then the Bears will be happy with eight wins in 2018.
