Chicago Bears: 2020 Roster prediction before final cuts on Saturday

Another quick Chicago Bears 53-man roster prediction.

The Chicago Bears fans and media have an idea of 36 players that will, for sure, make the team. The 36th player might interchange a bit, but it is generally accepted that Deandre Houston-Carson and Barkevious Mingo will both make the team.

After that, it is pretty much a guessing game based on which players stood out enough and what room needs help. With this prediction, I don’t try to make rooms even; I simply guess what Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace would do. In the past, coach Nagy has shared how he does not mind holding more players in odd positions groups if their talent is worth it.

Something to note about the Chicago Bears defensive backs is that after the injuries to Tre Roberson and Artie Burns, Kindle Vildor made this 53-man roster, otherwise he’d probably had been on the practice squad. Since the new rules allow 48 players to be dressed but the extra player has to be an offensive lineman, I have the Chicago Bears keeping 10 offensive linemen. With all that said, here is the list I have.
