The Chicago Bears have released their first depth chart of 2017. There aren’t many surprises.
This is an unofficial depth chart, but a depth chart nonetheless. The quarterback position remains the same with Mike Glennon at one, Mark Sanchez at two, and Mitchell Trubisky at three. I expect that to change by the start of the regular season. Trubisky has been very impressive in camp, it’s time to see if he can produce when it counts. For the time being, that will be in preseason football.
Dion Sims is listed ahead of Zach Miller at the tight end position, with rookie Adam Shaheen third. Cameron Meredith and Kevin White were the top two wide receivers. Jordan Howard was obviously listed as the starting running back, with Jeremy Langford number two and rookie Tarik Cohen behind him. If Langford cannot stay healthy look for the Cohen to be the number two behind Howard by the start of the regular season.
In the secondary, the four starters are Quintin Demps, Adrian Amos, Prince Amukamara, and Marcus Cooper. Mitch Unrein is listed ahead of Jonathan Bullard for now at defensive end, but that is another battle to watch throughout the remainder of camp.
Thursday cannot come soon enough.
