U’ tight ends Bears could target
Posted On 04/08/2021 05:08:02 by wisepowder

Barring a late-offseason move, the Bears will be keeping tight end Jimmy Graham around for the 2021 season.To get more news about bears Womens jerseys, you can visit bearsbuy official website.

Considering the $7 million that could have been saved by dumping Graham, many thought his release would be a foregone conclusion. As trade rumors around his friend Russell Wilson picked up and cornerback Kyle Fuller got released, though, it became clear that Graham likely wasn’t going anywhere.Though they have their two primary tight ends locked in with Graham and 2020 second-round pick Cole Kmet, the Bears are currently lacking in depth at the position.

 



Their three other tight ends on the roster — J.P. Holtz, Jesper Horsted and Darion Clark — have a combined 15 receptions at the NFL level. Plus, with Graham turning 35 in November and entering the last year of his two-year deal, the Bears don’t have a succession plan in place for the former All-Pro.

Let’s be real here: the Bears have much bigger needs than adding a developmental tight end. However, it is a need that exists and one that not enough people are thinking about. If Chicago gets good value on Day 3 in this month’s draft, it might be beneficial for them to go after a tight end.Widely viewed as a top-5 tight end in the 2021 draft and the third-ranked tight end on my board, Brevin Jordan likely isn’t an incredibly realistic option for the Bears. However, a less-than-ideal Pro Day showing could see him fall farther than expected.

 



Jordan’s measurement at 6-foot-2 1⁄2 is no surprise, but what is surprising is his underwhelming athletic testing. He came away with a below-average 4.62 20-yard shuttle and while his 4.69 40-yard dash would’ve placed fourth among last year’s tight ends at the 2020 Combine, it fell short of how he played on tape.

All that to say this, though, Jordan’s tape is really, really good. He’s a crisp route runner who brings good footwork and a sharp understanding of exploiting a defense’s weak spots in both man and coverage. He accelerates well off the snap and doesn’t have any wasted movements as a route runner. His ball skills and body control are impressive, and he showcases good effort as a blocker. He may tumble a little bit if teams overreact to his Pro Day outing, and if he ends up in the early Day 3 range, the Bears would be wise to consider taking a shot on him.
Tommy Tremble doesn’t have a breakout collegiate season to his name, having fewer than 20 catches in every season he played. What he lacks in production, he more than makes up for in upside and quality tape. Tremble is an athletic prospect who fires well off the snap and has the raw speed needed to stretch a defense vertically across the middle of the field. He shows off great fluidity on film and is able to flip his hips seamlessly when running routes. With elite speed and explosion numbers according to Kent Lee Platte’s RAS system, Tremble’s Pro Day matched his strengths on tape.

He’s smaller at 6-foot-3 and 241 pounds, and he doesn’t bring significant physicality at the catch point or at the point of attack as a run blocker. While he doesn’t project as a Day 1 starter, the Bears wouldn’t need him to be. He could go as high as the third round, but if he’s available by the time Chicago picks in Round 5 — or in Round 4 if they acquire a pick there — he could be great value. Bringing Tremble in as a “move” tight end to complement his former collegiate teammate could be a smart move if the value is right.
