The Chicago Bears had a pretty disappointing 2019 campaign, but there's plenty of reason to believe they'll turn it around in 2020. That hope starts with new quarterback Nick Foles, who might be able to provide a more-stable hand than Mitchell Trubisky.

But there's one surprise name on the offense that could be poised for a breakout season in 2020.

The team's wide receiver coach, Mike Furrey, seems to be a big believer in second-year wide receiver Riley Ridley's work ethic and talent. Ridley had something of a pedestrian rookie season, tallying 6 catches for 69 yards through five games played.

But this is an encouraging sign for the 2019 fourth-round pick. Notably, Riley's older brother Calvin Ridley also appears poised for a huge 2020 campaign with the Atlanta Falcons.

If Ridley can beat out Ted Ginn Jr. for WR3 duties this season, he could be a legitimate breakout candidate.
