We’ve already covered every single player on the roster with our summer series “Countdown to Camp,” but which players do we expect to actually make the team once training camp and the preseason comes to a close? With the Chicago Bears kicking off training camp this week, the Chicago Bears have plenty of questions to answer — especially on the backend of the roster. We decided to go through the current roster and narrow down who we predict to make the final roster.

That sounds like a fun thought exercise to go through before Bears Camp begins next week.

In this podcast episode, the full panel of The Chicago Audible each takes their turn attempting to correctly guess the Bears 53-man roster when it’s all said and done.

Which players will still be around for the Chicago Bears at the end of the month?

Take a listen as the guys go position-by-position, and predict who they have making the team. They also take some time to explain which of these players are their “pre-camp locks,” which players they have barely make it in on the bubble, some darkhorse candidates, and who may end up being a surprise cut at the end of the day.

Plus the guys explain which of the players they have not making the team ending up on the Bears’ practice squad.

So who’s in, who’s out, and which players will find themselves on the team come Week 1?

As always, the guys at The Chicago Audible, have you covered.
