Projecting the Bears Offensive Linemen: Webb’s Roster Spot in Jeopardy

Bubble (4) 

Here’s the most interesting group.  If you believe the Bears will keep 8 offensive linemen and the Locks and Solid guys are in, then you have two spots open among this group.

Jonathan Scott - I put him on the bubble because his bad knee could put him at risk of possible getting cut or put on IR if it continues to linger. He’s probably the most likely bubble guy to make the squad if healthy.  That just puts more pressure for one spot left between the rest of the class.

J’Marcus Webb – Webb’s status has never been in doubt like this before.  It’s put up or tweet up time.

Eben Britton – perhaps the most versatile offensive lineman. Jack of all trades, master of none. Will need to perform well in preseason games to lock down a spot

Edwin Williams – the most experienced backup interior lineman will be fighting for his life over the last couple of preseason games.

PJ Lonergan, Taylor Boggs, Corey Brandon are all facing a major uphill climb to make a roster spot.  Maybe one of these guys can crack the practice squad?

What do you think?  Which of the bubble guys can break through for a spot?  Are the locks really locks?  How do you see the eight offensive line spot filling out?  Let’s see your comments.

    Well if Emery cuts Webb…I will stop doubting his objectivity (not that I really ever did, but was looking for consistency in leadership/decision making from him). People sometimes lie to themselves or put so much into a player, it creates a barrier to taking a certain distasteful action such as cutting a player…I think that is where Tice was because I could see the attributes, but never the play or consistency on the field. What makes any Bear fan believe after four years that will change?
