The second-year running back figures to be all over the field — running inside and outside, coming out of the backfield on pass plays, pass-protecting and lining up as a wide receiver. Ideally, he’ll be a threat, a decoy and a dynamic weapon who helps keep opponents on their heels and allows the Bears’ offense to zig when the defense zags.

It’s a lot to ask of a player coming off his rookie season. But Cohen’s playmaking ability and versatility make him an ideal weapon in Nagy’s offense. The Bears aren’t babying him. They’re doing all they can to maximize him and fully coach him up so when opponents respond — as they did last year with success — the Bears will be able to respond right back.

“It’s a great thing that he has a lot to learn because that means we’re trying to get him the ball in so many different ways in this offense,” Trubisky said Wednesday before veteran minicamp practice. “But Tarik’s a really smart player; that’s the great thing about him.

‘‘Not only is he dynamic with the ball, but he understands the offense and knows how to open up his other teammates, whether it’s just doing his job or making a block or running a specific route without the ball.

“But we all know what he can do with the ball in his hands, and for him to be a smart player who understands the offense, we can pretty much line him up at any position — and he could argue he could play my spot right now, too.”

I feel like I fit very well into the offense. I’m doing a little bit of everything — outside receiver, in the slot and at running back as well as special teams. I feel like this is the offense for me.”
