Starters: Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery
Backups: Earl Bennett, Marquess Wilson, Eric Weems, Joseph Anderson and Devin Hester
Chicago struck gold when it landed Brandon Marshall for two third-round picks last year. Marshall is the offense's top playmaker and most consistent presence. He has a great relationship with Jay Cutler that only figures to improve with another offseason.
The Bears brought in Alshon Jeffery to complement Marshall on the outside. His season development was slowed a bit by injuries, but Jeffery showed a ton of promise. He boasts the size and leaping ability to make plays down the field. Jeffery just needs to develop as a route runner in order to make a bigger impact.
This unit does lack speed and someone capable of working out of the slot. Earl Bennett continues his hot-and-cold play and can’t be counted on moving forward. This is why the Bears brought in Marquess Wilson via the draft.
Wilson has some off-the-field concerns but is a highly talented player with a ton of upside. There is a good chance that he makes a strong push for the slot-receiver job.
