3. Jordan Howard
While Jordan Howard’s future with the Bears is unclear, if he is on the Bears in for the 2019 season, he definitely has a chance to make the 2020 Pro Bowl.
Despite having a down year in 2018, Howard still managed to rush for 935 yards and score nine rushing touchdowns. In a year where he saw his workload decrease due to not being a perfect scheme fit, Howard’s numbers were still impressive when one looks at them in-depth.
What makes 2019 an interesting year for the entire Bears offense is the fact that everyone will be in their second year in the same system. What this means is that the entire Bears offense is due to take a major step forward.
Essentially, this also means that Jordan Howard could see an increased role in the offense. Despite being on a timeshare with Tarik Cohen, Howard will still be the running back the Bears will use to grind the clock out late in games.
Being a power runner, Howard doesn’t have the best hands to catch the football, but he is still effective when it comes to picking up the blitz and protecting the quarterback.
For Howard to get back to the Pro Bowl, he’ll need to perform at a high level and prove that he can, in fact, be a major contributor to the Bears offense. If Howard can remain consistent and post career numbers in 2019, then he should earn his first Pro Bowl berth since his rookie season.
