The Chicago Bears coaching staff has shifted away from OTAs, and we are now focused on training camp. The Bears will not have a set depth chart for the first day of camp, but they will have their first official depth chart that will set the order of rotations and who runs with what groups.

With that in mind, we will take a look at the edge rusher depth chart and look into who will be getting chances to move up and down the roster this summer.

1. Khalil Mack

Mack does not need much talk. Some fans do not think he has lived up to his hype, but he has averaged 10 sacks per year in his Chicago career.

2. Robert Quinn

Quinn had a dude of a season in 2020. We can forgive 2020 for everyone, but the question now is what his role will be in a new defense.

3. Jeremiah Attachou

The Bears signed Attachou to replace Barkevious Mingo. The Bears are thinking they have an upgrade who has more versatility.

4. Trevis Gipson

The Chicago Bears traded a fifth-round pick in this past draft to get Trevis Gipson into their system early. After a year of development, where does he stand?

5. James Vaughters

Vaughters was ahead of Gipson last year so this may be wish casting, but reporters have agreed that the coaching staff is giving Gipson his chances to break out into the fourth or even third pass rusher role.

6. Charles Snowden

Snowden is a UDFA from UVA. He is long and lanky, but his body type and skill set fit what Sean Desai wants from a versatility standpoint.

dark. Next. Expectations for Cole Kmet in year 2

7. Ledarius Mack

The younger brother of Khalil stuck around, and his tweeter frame helps with Sean Desai. Still, Snowden had much more prospect pedigree coming out of college, and Mack is mainly living off of the name. We have yet to see an actual play that warrants anything more than the practice squad.
