Now that the dust of the NFL draft has settled, what does the Chicago Bears 53-man roster look like?
The Chicago Bears were not one of the more busy teams in the NFL this past weekend. However, they did add some quality talent, and may have brought home the best UDFA haul of any team.
With the team finishing their draft and UDFA signings there will not be many changes to the roster in the coming months leading up until training camp. The team may do some fine-tuning, but now are looking into potential camp battles.
With that in mind, what does the 53-man roster look like, and what are some roster battles to keep an eye on.
Quarterback- (2) Mitch Trubisky, Chase Daniel
Tyler Bray gets released once again, as he hangs out on standby waiting for an injury to sign on again.
Running back- (5) Tarik Cohen, David Montgomery, Mike Davis, Kerrith Whyte, Ryan Nall
Kerrith Whyte should get the nod over Taquan Mizzell on special teams value. Ryan Nall gets in as the pseudo fullback.
Wide Receiver- (7) Allen Robinson. Anthony Miller, Taylor Gabriel, Riley Ridley, Cordarrelle Patterson, Javon Wims, Emanuel Hall
Being stingy with Bray and Nall enables the Bears to keep their deep wide receiver group. As long as Emanuel Hall shows maturity this offseason, he is going to make the team.
Tight End- (3) Trey Burton, Adam Shaheen, Ben Braunecker
The Chicago Bears have three tight ends on their roster. They may add a camp body or two, but will not do much more with the roster.
Offensive line- (8) Charles Leno, Cody Whitehair, James Daniels, Kyle Long, Bobby Massie, Rashad Coward, Alex Bars, Ted Larsen
Alex Bars gets the nod over Bradley Sowell, and even Larsen should be on the watch with multiple UDFA options on the line.
Defensive line- (6) Akiem Hicks, Eddie Goldman, Bilal Nichols, Jonathan Bullard, Roy Robertson-Harris, Abdullah Anderson
After a season on the practice squad Anderson is ready to step up to the plate.
Edge- (5) Leonard Floyd, Khalil Mack, Aaron Lynch, Kylie Fitts, Isaiah Irving
Fitts and Irving were the winners of the weekend, and both get onto the 53-man roster.

Inside LB- (4) Danny Trevathan, Roquan Smith, Joel Iyigebuniwe, Nick Kwiatkoski
Josh Woods is likely to spend another year on the practice squad, and there is little depth behind him.
Cornerbacks -(6) Prince Amukamara, Kyle Fuller, Buster Skrine, Kevin Toliver, Sherrick McManis, Duke Shelley
The debate will be whether or not they can stash seventh round pick Stephen Denmark on their practice squad.
Safety- (4) Eddie Jackson, HaHa Clinton-Dix, Deon Bush, DeAndre Houston-Carson
Special teams -(3) Patrick Scales, Pat O’Donnell, Chris Blewitt
For the first time the kicker decision actually matters. For the sake of the puns, Blewitt.
