Anthony Miller looking like the real deal early on


General manager Ryan Pace made it an emphasis to upgrade the wide receivers around his young quarterback. Allen Robinson was the first domino to drop, inking the former Jacksonville Jaguars wideout to a four-year contract. Pace followed with former Atlanta Falcon Taylor Gabriel to add some speed to a group.

The X-factor addition though came in the draft with the Bears using a second-round pick to select former Memphis standout, Anthony Miller. Miller’s skillset is one of the more intriguing of all the receivers on the depth chart. At 5-foot-11, Miller doesn’t play like his listed size. He’s an aggressive wideout when going up for the football.

His route running is also ahead of the c­­urve. In camp, he’s already showing the ability to set up cornerbacks and create separation. Spectators have come away very impressed. The general consensus is that the Pace found a gem.

I jumped out of the window some weeks back and made a bold prediction that Miller will be the best wide receiver on the team in two years. If Miller keeps up his strong play throughout camp and preseason, I might have to expedite that timeline. Good days are ahead for this passing offense.
