3. Charles Leno Jr.
This may be hard to fathom, but Charles Leno Jr. continues to make the case as a really good tackle in this league.
Week after week Leno has been going up against some real playmakers, whether that be Green Bay’s Muhammad Wilkerson or Arizona’s Chandler Jones, Leno Jr. has held his own. The offensive line only allowed four pressures this week which is remarkable, and a lot of that has to do with the consistency from their left tackle.
Leno’s contract extension came as a bit of a surprise to some, but the guy has looked every part of a competent blindside protector. Besides one sack that came after the team was already far behind, Leno Jr. made Buccaneers’ featured pass rusher, Jason Pierre-Paul an almost non-factor.
If the offensive line continues to protect Trubisky in a similar fashion to how they did on Sunday, this Bears’ offense is going to progress at a much faster rate. Charles Leno Jr. will have to continue to dominate his matchups to give his team the best opportunity to do so.
