With the NFL draft in the rearview mirror, there will not be many transactions by the Chicago Bears before the team heads to training camp. So, what does the depth chart look like as the team enters the summer months? Today, we will look at linebackers

MIKE Tremaine Edmunds

Tremaine Edmunds will handle the MIKE duties and will control the middle of the defense. Edmunds got off to a slow start last season, but like the majority of the players on the 2023 roster, he got better as the year went on. The expectation is that he will improve again in year two. 

WILL TJ Edwards

Most fans would say that Edwards had a better year than Edmunds. They have slightly different responsibilities with Edwards being more in the run-and-chase role while Edmunds has to hold down the middle of the field. 

Edwards was excellent against the run but struggled in man coverage against some of the better running backs in the NFL. That must improve this year. 

SAM Jack Sanborn 

Jack Sanborn is the rare case of a UDFA who excels in his rookie year and then sees the team actively try to replace him in the second season. He played just 81 more snaps in year two despite being active and healthy for every game, which was not the case as a rookie. 

4. Noah Sewell 

The Bears drafted Sewell last year to fill the depth of the room. He stayed active due to the special team's capabilities. 

5. Amen Ogbongbemiga 

Amen Ogbongbemiga has found a stable career by being active on multiple phases of special teams. He signed with Chicago to bring that value. 

6. Micah Baskerville 

Baskerville was a UDFA who stuck around last year. While he is end of the roster depth, he has that special team ability that gives him a good chance to make the roster. 

7. Carl Jones 

Carl Jones is a rookie UDFA from UCLA who will hope to make the practice squad.
