Running Back: David Montgomery, Khalil Herbert
Wide Receivers: Darnell Mooney, Byron Pringle, Velus Jones Jr.
Tight End: Cole Kmet
The clear No. 4 skill position group in the NFC North, the Chicago Bears have a lot of work to do in order to surround second-year quarterback Justin Fields with talent. The only additions worth mentioning from this past offseason for this team were the signing of Pringle and Jones, a third-round pick out of Tennessee.
At running back they have Montgomery, who has been a consistently good producer for them. He is a good blend of power, vision, and speed out of the backfield, and ws often times under-used by Matt Nagy–especially in the passing game. He is backed up by Khalil Herbert, who proved effective when he got chances as a rookie last year.
The aforementioned receiver room is anchored by the emerging Mooney, who is starting to look like one of the more promising receivers in the league and is now the clear No. 1 guy with the departure of Allen Robinson. Bears fans hope he can produce like a No. 1 receiver. At tight end the Bears have Kmet, who had a dismal rookie year in 2021 but carries plenty of promise.
Ultimately, there isn’t a lot to celebrate with the skill position group the Bears have. They are the clear worst in the NFC North, and possibly one of the bottom handful of skill groups in the entire league if they were fully ranked out.
