"Chicago Bears' OTAs got underway this week and we've got plenty to talk about.
The QB battle between Andy Dalton and Justin Fields is obviously at the top of everybody's list but it's also interesting to think about who they'll be throwing too.
Many believe Darnell Mooney is ready to take a big step in his sophomore year after breaking the Bears' franchise record for rookie receptions and listening to head coach Matt Nagy he should have no problem picking up where left off.
When talking about Mooney, Nagy compared him to some pretty big names.
«He has a rare element of speed combined with route running, hands and passion and commitment,» Nagy said. «So you take all that and you say, ‘My gosh! We got this guy in the fifth round? Are you kidding me?' You know what I mean?
«I've been around Tyreek Hill. … I've been around a young DeSean Jackson in Philadelphia. I'm just going to tell you right now that this guy is the complete package. You know? And compares right there with … he's going to have the ability in time to be comparable to those. It would be unfair to say that he is those guys now. But he has a very high ceiling and that's exciting as a coach.»
Big statement by Nagy, what do you think of his comments?"
