Offensive Line

Left Tackle: Charles Leno, Bradley Sowell, Matt McCants

  • Sowell’s ability to play tackle and guard will win him a spot on the Bears.

Left guard: Eric Kush, James Daniels, Jordan Morgan

  • Apparently, nothing is going to be given to Daniels. This coaching staff is going to make him earn a starting spot. Kush is a very capable player who can play both guard spots and center. However, I feel like Daniels will top the depth chart heading into week one of the regular season and Kush will be the ultimate swing man.

Center: Cody Whitehair, Hroniss Grasu, James Daniels

  • Daniels has had some reps at center in practice, since that was the position he played in college at Iowa. Grasu’s career has been a roller coaster ride to this point, but maybe his former college coach and current offensive coordinator, Mark Helfrich, can start to bring out some more consistency in him to turn him into a reliable backup.

Right Guard: Kyle Long, Earl Watford, Will Pericak

Kyle Long has been active at training camp, but at the same time the coaching staff has been taking it slowly with him by giving him some scheduled maintenance days. Watford should see plenty of time in the preseason as the coaching staff looks to make sure Long is ready to go week one. Morgan should beat out Pericak, but whether Morgan would be active on gamedays depends on how many offensive linemen Nagy wants to carry.

Right Tackle: Bobby Massie, Rashaad Coward, Brandon Greene

  • Massie is an underrated right tackle and will certainly be the starter. Coward has impressed me in his transition from the defensive line to the offensive line. He’s been holding his own in training camp and is likely going to be Massie’s backup.
