Gandy is the most likely candidate to remain in the starting lineup, as he will compete with Qasim Mitchell at left tackle. It appears that Mitchell has the inside track at this point because he's a natural tackle, while Gandy is more suited to play guard. When healthy Marc Colombo is definitely the most talented of the trio, but it's too early to say if he'll be ready for training camp.
The Bears will not sign any more big names in free agency, so the draft and competition within the team will dictate what happens between now and the start of the season.
Mike Green did not partake in team drills because the team didn't want to rush him back from a groin injury that forced him to miss time last season. Bobby Gray took the majority of the first team snaps at strong safety. Todd Johnson, who missed all of last season with a broken jaw, knocked Marty Booker out of practice with a borderline cheap shot.
While Bryan Robinson and Alfonso Boone are penciled in as the defensive tackles, this is a definite area of weakness. Look for Angelo to address the interior of the defensive line if not with the 14th selection in the draft then at least on the first day. Lovie Smith still craves a third defensive end he could rotate with Michael Haynes and Alex Brown.
The theme of the draft will likely be defensive minded considering all five of the major off-season acquisitions have been on the other side of the ball.
