2. Will we see the Chicago Bears rookie lineman more in week two?
As we noted, the Chicago Bears' defensive line was not getting much push. The team made two picks in the second round on defensive players, who are supposed to be the future of this team. The Bears slow playing them into the mix is not a big surprise.
However, after the line struggles, it may be time to see if one of these young guys has a spark. The Chicago Bears played Dexter for 23 snaps and Pickens for 12. Meanwhile Justin Jones played 39, and Billings played 33. The team would like to see that get closer to a four-man rotation.
Billings played fine, and his role as the nose tackle will be tough to replace. However, Dexter has more athletic potential than Justin Jones, and while he is more raw, he needs experience on the field. The Chicago Bears should get him out there a bit more in the coming weeks. They need to get something out of these two higher draft picks.
