Grading Chicago Bears Left Guard

Cody Whitehair: 541 snaps

Primary matchups: TJ Slaton, Kenny Clark, Devonte Wyatt, Logan Hall, Mike Greene, Neil Farrell, Derrick Nnadi, Zach Allen, Jonathan Harris, Jerry Tillery, Bilal Nichols, Austin Johnson, Bryan Breese, DeShawn Williams, LaBryan Ray

It has been a bumpy road for Cody Whitehair, who is easily having the worst year of his career. He started two games at center in weeks five and six but has been back at guard for the last four weeks. 

He is coming off of two of the better performances of his season, but it is fair that Bryan Breese and DeShawn Williams are not the toughest competition he has seen. The issue is that while he has not allowed many pressures recently, he is still too slow to make any real impact out in space in the run game, and everything he can bring is limited overall. 

The other thing you can say is that he is reliable. Fighting through is injury is part of why his decline came so fast, but he does not miss snaps, which is what this team needs.
