1. Kindle Vildor over Desmond Trufant

One of the biggest questions of the offseason was what the Chicago Bears would do about the cornerback spot after letting Kyle Fuller go. They signed Desmond Trufant, but he has a long history of injuries. They drafted Kindle Vildor, but not until day three. Who has the edge?

It turns out that the youth is winning out right now. To be fair to Trufant, he missed the first few weeks with an injury. At the same time, injuries are why Trufant isn’t trusted at his age. If this is a reoccurring theme, then Vildor will have to hold down the top spot.

Next. 5 players who should flash in joint practices. dark

If not, it does open the possibility that next week Trufant is ahead of Vildor. Still, this does show Vildor that the ball is in his court. If he performs well in the preseason, he will not get bumped and get the first shot. That would be significant and something to watch as we get closer to week one.
