Cornerbacks (6): Kyle Fuller, Alan Ball, Terrance Mitchell, Sherrick McMannis, Tracy Porter and Demontre Hurst

The Bears are not exactly loaded with talent and experience at the cornerback position. Fuller is the clear number one, and while he was great at times as a rookie last season, the former first round pick is far from a sure thing.

Following the release of veteran Tim Jennings, journeyman Alan Ball appears to be the favorite to start at the position opposite of Fuller. Mitchell and McMannis are both young, intriguing players who have shown up in a big way this preseason. Mitchell seems to have the upper hand to be the primary nickel corner right now, but McMannis should get plenty of opportunity to prove himself as well.

Porter is a nice veteran to have around, and he will clearly figure into the plans as well. However, he has struggled with injuries throughout the preseason, so it is hard to see how he fits in right now. Hurst is a talented player with some nice upside. His ability to player corner, nickel and safety would be of huge benefit to this team.

This is another position where the Bears should be looking at players who are cut from other rosters.
