Out of all three phases, the secondary is the most complete and arguably the deepest of them all. Both at cornerback and safety, the Bears have Pro Bowl talent. Fortunately, some of the backups have stepped up big time throughout camp to prove depth at the position.

Starting Cornerbacks: Kyle Fuller, Prince Amukamara

Fuller looks poised for an even bigger breakout year in 2018. Last season, he emerged with almost a swagger about him that we hadn’t seen in years past. He played with a multitude of confidence, which is something all of the great corners have in this league. Now, he’ll look to build on it with an even bigger 2018.

Amukamara quietly had a very good 2017. The biggest knock on him was not being able to intercept the ball more than he did — as has been the knock on him his whole career. Other than that, he played a solid season last year, and one more year in this system, next to the same guys should do him wonders.

Others: Bryce Callahan, Cre’von LeBlanc, Michael Joseph, Kevin Toliver, Doran Grant

Callahan is obviously the starting slot corner, but beyond him, we might have some notable cuts. Out of this group, you don’t see Marcus Cooper or Sherrick McManis. That’s because Joseph, Toliver and Grant have all shown up in camp and in their first preseason action. I think these guys want it more and are better equipped than Cooper or McManis at this point. But, we’ll see.

Starting Safeties: Eddie Jackson, Adrian Amos

The safety position boasts a surefire tandem for years to come in both Amos and Jackson. The two of them possess unique qualities which make them such a fantastic duo and, assuming health, they should be around for quite some time in Chicago.

Others: Deon Bush, Deiondre’ Hall

Who knew the Bears could actually see some depth at the safety position? Both Bush and Hall have had outstanding camps and looked real competent in the early preseason action. Bush may be playing himself into a contract on another team if he’s not careful. That’s going to be something to watch for in the next few weeks, if he continues to show out.
