What are five things that stand out when looking at the Chicago Bears first depth chart?

Every year there is a big debate over the first batch of depth charts that are released. Then a preseason game comes by and everything changes by the next game. The Chicago Bears have more in place this year than years past. Still, when looking at the first depth chart released by the team, do remember that things can change. Fast. With that said, here is a glimpse at the first depth chart.

With those released, what are five positions worth looking into this summer?

5. Safety

It feels as though every time I check the depth chart, Deiondre’ Hall is somewhere else. All offseason I speculated that he would be getting chances at safety. Early reports were that Hall would be moving back to cornerback. Reports came out that he took reps at cornerback in camp. However, on the depth chart, he is a safety.

Safety is the more natural path for him to make the roster. It makes sense. Again, while there is no need to panic, it is worth noting that Deiondre’ Hall is also ahead of DeAndre Houston-Carson on the depth chart. If only four safeties stay,  is it Hall?

Lastly, we see Jonathon Mincy, a CFL player who we saw as a cornerback listed as the third-string safety ahead of Nick Orr, a UDFA from TCU.
