We are now counting down the weeks until the Chicago Bears head to training camp. While OTAs did not establish anything, the initial depth chart is set so that the team will know who gets reps with who entering camp.

With that in mind, what does the Chicago Bears group of offensive tackles look like?

Germain Ifedi

Many believe that the Chicago Bears improved their offensive line this offseason. That is very fair in long-term projection, but at this point, last season Germain Ifedi was looked as their third tackle at best and was a right guard. Now, he is locked into starting right tackle duties. He has now become the clear-cut biggest question on the line.

Teven Jenkins

The Chicago Bears are not going to hand Teven Jenkins the starting job, but even before training camp starts it is hard not to put him as one of the top two tackles. His winning the left tackle job is basically just him staying healthy and proving he knows the playbook.

Elijah Wilkinson

Wilkinson has been taking snaps at left tackle this offseason after starting on the right side last season. He is the break glass in case of emergency option if Jenkins finds himself behind the curve.

Larry Borom

Essentially the way to view this situation is that Wilkinson will be behind Jenkins on the left side while Borom will be behind Ifedi on the right. In an ideal situation, they would find Borom and Jenkins starting by the end of the year, though.

Badara Traore

Traore has some experience at right tackle, which is good considering the options are a right guard from last year, and a day three rookie.

Tyrone Wheatley Jr.

The Chicago Bears signed Wheatley after a tryout during OTAs. He likely will just fill depth, but they had to see something considering they moved on from Gunnar Vogel for him.
