The Chicago Bears are set with their starters, but which players could drastically change the rest of the depth chart this summer?

Every great team knows that it takes much more than one player to win games, but for the Chicago Bears, it was just one guy who made all of the difference in their 2018 season. Obviously, Khalil Mack did a heck of a lot more than one player typically does for an entire franchise, making him a special case.

To win a championship, though, it is going to take more than just Mack. It is going to take more than having a handful of Pro Bowl players and a smart, yet unconventional, head coach.

To win a Super Bowl, it takes depth. It takes all 53 men on the roster. More often than not, you see a team win the Super Bowl starting different players at multiple positions in comparison to their opening day roster.

Injuries happen. Slumps happen. Some players may enjoy successes, while others experience a bad game or two — or more. That’s why the game of football is so exciting. On a week-to-week basis, there are always guys who step up when you least expect them to in order for their team to win the game.

The Bears are fortunate to have their starters pretty much set going into this next season. But, it’s the guys behind those starters who will make or break their chances at a Super Bowl. Solidifying the depth chart is going to be key for Matt Nagy and his staff over the summer.

As we prepare for training camp, there are many players who could shake things up for the Bears. But, I want to focus on just four. These are my top four players who could truly have an impact on the depth chart at their respective positions.
