NFC Notes: Bears, Packers, Vikings

     

Bears

  • NFL Media’s Charley Casserly writes Bears second-round TE Cole Kmet is expected to be an immediate impact player as a rookie, as Chicago likes his potential as a blocker and inside receiver due to his size. 
  • The Bears also think second-round CB Jaylon Johnson can compete to start as the team’s No. 2 outside corner as a rookie. He’ll be pushed by free-agent signing Artie Burns and Kevin Toliver
  • The biggest Bears position battle is of course at quarterback, but Casserly says other prominent battles include Rashaad Coward vs Germain Ifedi at right guard and Bilal Nichols vs Roy Robertson-Harris at defensive end. 
  • Chicago will also look to sort out a pecking order between veteran addition Ted Ginn and former second-round pick Anthony Miller for the No. 2 receiver job. 2019 fourth-round pick Riley Ridley and Javon Wims will also push for roles. 

Packers

Vikings

  • Joel Corry of CBS Sports notes that Vikings franchise S Anthony Harris would be “virtually powerless” to stop a trade because he signed his franchise tender in May.
  • Corry adds any long-term deal Harris signs would likely make him the highest-paid defensive back in Vikings history.
