If you’re like me, it doesn’t matter who is on the field Thursday night — you’re anxious. You’re excited. You’re chomping at the bit to see that navy and orange on the field for the first time. Regardless of the outcome, there are plenty of players to pay attention to in this game.

The Bears just wrapped up their second week of training camp and released their first unofficial depth chart during summer practices. There are plenty of areas which are no surprise. However, when you look a little deeper, some parts of this depth chart stick out.

To this point, there are some intriguing position battles heating up. Let’s dive into five of them which have all the fans talking, and see if we can make any sense of them at the moment.
