Darnell Mooney's Explosiveness Has Coaches Excited

Chicago Bears rookie wide receiver Darnell Mooney has not been able to work out with the coaching staff this offseason, but that hasn't curtailed receivers coach Mike Furrey's excitement about the rookie. Hes going to probably be one of the most explosive guys that we have in our room in regard to matching his speed with his agility, Furrey said. The Bears selected the Tulane prospect in the fifth round and are hoping that the learning curve will not be too steep in 2020. The Bears offense struggled mightily last season, especially in the category of big-time explosive plays. Mooney will be tasked with learning the ropes from veteran speedster Ted Ginn Jr. as the Bears try and recapture what made their offense so dynamic in 2018.

Allen Robinson II's Leadership Making An Impact

Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson II continues to show his leadership skills during this unprecedented offseason. Robinson has been very vocal during the team's Zoom meetings, according to Bears receivers coach Mike Furrey, and has been getting on players to stay focused. Furrey told reporters that Robinson is one of the most professional players that Ive ever been around in my playing and coaching career. The veteran receiver also has been an advocate for social justice and continues to set a strong example for a group of Bears receivers that features plenty of youth. Robinson caught 98 passes last season for 1,147 yards and seven touchdowns for a Bears offense that was anemic. The seventh-year receiver will be a top-10 selection among wide receivers in upcoming fantasy drafts this year, especially if quarterback Nick Foles takes over for Mitchell Trubisky.

Anthony Miller Hoping To Improve Preparation

Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller is working with the team's coaching staff to improve his preparation before games. Miller got off to a slow start in 2019 after offseason shoulder surgery, producing only four receptions through his first four games. But the third-year receiver ended strong, finishing up the season with 52 catches for 656 yards and two scores. Miller has a wealth of talent on the field, but Bears receivers coach Mike Furrey indicates that it is his preparation that is separating him from NFL stardom. "In the middle of the season, I believe Anthony really started having an idea and understanding what it takes not just how to step inside the four-inch line and go play football, but how to start developing himself as a professional through a process leading up to a game, Furrey said. Miller will have plenty of boom/bust potential heading into 2020.

Bears Coaches Have High Hopes For Riley Ridley

Chicago Bears wide receiver Riley Ridley has plenty to prove after a non-descript rookie season in 2019. But receivers coach Mike Furrey has high hopes for the second-year wideout, telling reporters, "I think the biggest growth were going to see with anybody in our room is going to be Ridley." Ridley, whose brother Calvin plays for the Falcons, did not see the field until Thanksgiving of last year and caught only six passes for 69 yards in five games on the active roster. But the young receiver has an NFL frame and his route-running was touted coming out of college. The transition to the NFL was steep for Ridley last season but the Bears coaching staff is banking on the second-year receiver making some noise in 2020.

Ted Ginn Jr. Has Faith In Mitchell Trubisky

Chicago Bears wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. is "excited to move back to the Midwest" as one of the new additions to the Bears offense. Ginn told Good Morning Football that he believes that quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will be the starter and has enjoyed his conversations with head coach Matt Nagy thus far. Ginn is a veteran but still has the speed to blow the top off an opposing defense, a dynamic the Bears sorely missed last season. Chicago's offense was one of the most frustrating units in football last season and will be under the microscope from the first snap of training camp when teams reconvene. Ginn's boom-or-bust ways as a deep threat doesn't give him much fantasy appeal in most fantasy leagues, but his presence as a deep threat should be good news for Allen Robinson.
