How would you rank the Chicago Bears 90-man roster heading into training camp

Ranking 90-86  85-81  80-76 75-71 70-66   65-61 60-56

With the long wait between OTAs and training camp it is a good chance to assess the entire Chicago Bears roster. Where does everyone stand in terms of expectations? This series will rank the Chicago Bears roster based on how valuable they are to the success moving forward. It is an arbitrary ranking that should give a general idea of what the players floor and ceiling may be.

Today, we look at players 55-51.

55. Deiondre’ Hall

Deiondre’ Hall is in a similar spot to DeAndre Houston-Carson. Both are entering year three and neither has proven much in their first two seasons. Hall played cornerback and safety in his rookie season. While he did not see the field much, he showed some promise and showed special teams value.

However, in the summer of his second offseason, a hamstring injury disrupted everything. Hall spent the first portion of his season working back from the injury and the second portion of his season getting acclimated to the defense again. So after a year essentially lost, Hall is now entering an interesting stage in his career with the Bears.

Hall is listed as a cornerback on the depth chart. That may not be the best news for Hall. The team is a bit thinner at safety, and at safety, he would likely be competing with Houston-Carson for a roster spot. Hall has more pedigree, a bit more invested and has size and athleticism on Houston-Carson.

It would give him the nod as the two enter camp. However, at cornerback, he has the three starters, Cre’Von LeBlanc, Marcus Cooper and more to compete with. Hall has practice squad eligibility, which would likely be the route if the team saw him as a cornerback and not a safety.
