Ranking Chicago Bears roster: 40-31


Who makes the cut for the top 40 Chicago Bears on the 90-man roster?

40. Deiondre Hall

Hall has some off of the field issues and may be moving from cornerback to safety. Still, from a skill set and investment standpoint, the Bears would really love to see him take a step forward and at least consistently find himself on the active roster.

39. Deon Bush

Bush is a classic deep middle safety. However, he showed lapses in coverage and did not look comfortable as a rookie. The Bears could really use a step forward from Bush in year two.

38. Harold Jones-Quartey

Jones-Quartey led all safeties in tackles last season and played the second-most snaps among safeties, behind Adrian Amos. However, he is a liability in

coverage and will have to fight to earn a roster spot this summer.

37. Eddie Jackson

Jackson fell in the draft due to a broken leg. Still, he should be ready to go by training camp and has chances to earn a punt return job as well as a starting safety job by the end of the year.

36. Cre’Veon LeBlanc

LeBlanc’s 2016 was a lot better than almost anyone will give him credit for. He can slide inside and outside and has the most experience in the defensive system of the top four cornerbacks on the roster.

35. Charles Leno

Leno is weakest started on the offensive line. Still, given the Bears depth at the position, he is going to be a lot more valuable than some of the other deeper positions. Unfortunately, the Bears cannot afford to lose Leno.

34. Hroniss Grasu

Grasu had a solid rookie year and lost his starting job thanks to an ACL injury. Now, he provides the depth to make the interior unit arguably the deepest in the league.

33. Zach Miller

When Miller is on the field he provides a safe and reliable tight end pass catching target. However, it has been his inability to stay on the field that makes him a potential cut and forced the Bears to draft and sign a tight end this offseason.

32. Victor Cruz

Cruz is coming off of the worst season of his career. After tearing his patellar tendon his prime is likely over, but the Bears will hope to get a reliable short passing threat from the salsa dancer.

31. Benny Cunningham

The Bears went out and got Cunningham knowing they had a role carved out for him. He will likely find his way onto the team as the third down and pass catching back.
