Chicago Bears: Predicting the offensive depth chart for Week 1
Chicago Bears Depth Chart: Interior Offensive Line
At least the interior of the offensive line is decent, right?
Center: Sam Mustipher
This is a great development. Seeing Sam Mustipher work his way up the depth chart is a great sight to see. This is not just great from a development standpoint, but it is also allows Cody Whitehair to move back to guard. Mustipher will have a few hiccups at times I am sure, but he has proven he can handle the position well enough to start.
LG1: Cody Whitehair
Allowing Cody Whitehair to move to left guard is fantastic. Whitehair and James Daniels are the two best linemen on this team — that includes both tackle positions. Whitehair was a very solid center, but he is a Pro Bowl offensive guard in my opinion. Hopefully the interior of the offensive line can make up for the outside.
RG1: James Daniels
We should be excited for James Daniels to return. He was having a fantastic season last year before going down with a pectoral injury. Daniels missed more than half the year, but if he can return to form than the Chicago Bears will owe him plenty of money soon as he is playing on the final year of his rookie contract.
OG2: Alex Bars
I love the versaitility of Alex Bars. Bars has a very similar story to Sam Mustipher. Both came from Notre Dame and both were undrafted free agents. They both have worked their way up the depth chart and although Bars isn’t starting, he is an invaluable depth piece.
OG3: Arlington Hambright
Just another depth piece and I literally have no feelings about Alrington Hambright making the final roster or not. He’s just a guy.
