There were some surprises in terms of the best and worst players, both on offense and defense. Here’s how PFF rated the bears:

Top 3 attack

  • OL Lahavious Simmons – 90.6
  • TE Cole Kmet – 90.2
  • WR Isaiah Coulter – 83.8

Reserve offensive lineman Lahavious Simmons earned the highest grade on offense with a 90.6. Simmons received high marks in both pass blocking (82.1) and run blocking (86.3). Tight end Cole Kmet made his preseason debut and showed his potential in the passing game with two catches for 31 yards. Kmet’s chemistry with quarterback Justin Fields was on display, and it’s clear these two will be a couple to watch. Kmet scored well on passing (90.1) and pass blocking (70.2), but was penalized on running blocking (60.0). Wide receiver Isaiah Coulter led the Bears with three catches for 39 yards, which explains his solid 82.1 passing grade. But Coulter received a blocking score of 61.8 runs.

  • TE Jake Tonges – 47.3
  • WR Dazz Newsome – 48.8
  • RB Darrynton Evans – 51.2

Oddly enough, the two players who hit offensive touchdowns were among the lowest-rated Bears. Tight end/fullback Jake Tonges, who caught a 2-yard pass from quarterback Trevor Siemian, received the lowest grade at 47.3. Tonges caught the lone pass that was thrown his way but received a passing grade of 55.6. He received a solid pass blocking score of 76.0. But his run blocking struggled at 42.8. Running back Darrynton Evans had another solid outing with eight rushes for 39 yards and a touchdown, but received a 57.4 rush grade. He caught two passes for 7 yards where he earned a passing score of 38.4. He received a solid 75.2 pass blocking grade. Wide receiver Dazz Newsome rounded out the bottom three with a score of 48.8. He caught a pass for 14 yards and received a passing grade of 53.3 and a run blocking grade of 35.7.

  • CB Jaylon Jones – 81.0
  • LB Joe Thomas – 78.3
  • DE Sam Kamara – 77.1

Cornerback Jaylon Jones led defense with an 81.0 grade, where he posted strong marks in coverage (80.6), tackling (78.0), and running defense (71.4). His worst grade was in the pass rush (56.8). Jones totaled 3 tackles and 1 pass breakout. Linebacker Joe Thomas continues to push for game time at the strong linebacker with another solid performance. Thomas was tied for a team-high of 7 tackles, including 1 tackle-for-loss. Thomas received an 88.6 mark in coverage but struggled with run defense (42.1), tackling (54.5), and pass rush (60.0). Defensive end Sam Kamara had 2 tackles, including 1 for a loss and 1 sack. He received solid marks in run defense (83.2), tackling (71.7), and pass rush (64.6).

Defense of the lower 3

  • DE Trevis Gipson – 26.2
  • DE Robert Quinn – 46.4
  • CB Kyler Gordon – 47.0

Three key starters on Chicago’s defense ended up among the lowest-scoring players. Rookie cornerback Kyler Gordon made his preseason debut at Nickel cornerback, showing his speed, dedication and potential on the key position in Matt Eberflus’ defense. But PFF didn’t think that highly of him. Gordon received a dismal overall score of 47.0, including poor marks in Tackling (26.7), Run Defense (41.3), Pass Rush (55.7), and Coverage (57.8). Defensive ends Robert Quinn and Trevis Gipson received the worst marks, with Gipson receiving a lazy 26.2. Gipson scored low marks in Run Defense (27.8), Pass Rush (58.1), and Coverage (60.0). Quinn was demoted in Run Defense (55.4), Pass Rush (54.7), and Coverage (60.0).
