Bears Training Camp: Matt Nagy Has High Praise For Darnell Mooney's Route-Running

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (CBS) -- The quarterbacks are getting a lot of the attention at Bears camp, and rightfully so - but it's the top two pass catchers that have really been standing out.

Allen Robinson and second-year man Darnell Mooney have looked great out on the Halas Hall practice fields.

It was Mooney who got some especially high praise Sunday from his head coach, Matt Nagy.

"Mooney, right now, is on fire with his route-running. He's running some routes right now that I haven't seen – him and A-Rob running his routes," Nagy said. "That's not to take away from these other guys. They're all doing great. But Mooney and A-Rob have been here. They're understanding the details of route-running. Now they're putting their own little flavors on things."

"Last year, I was more just being in the right place at the right time. This year, I'm more comfortable just taking my time; being more at pace; and being there really just to win the route – and then the quarterback hitting me," Mooney said.
