Starter: Rex Grossman
Backups: Chad Hutchinson, Kyle Orton
Starter: Cedric Benson
Backups: Thomas Jones, Adrian Peterson
Fullback: The injuries are concerning, but if Bryan Johnson is healthy for Week 1 that's will be good enough to open up holes for the ground attack. Jason McKie would have challenged Johnson, if not for a torn pectoral muscle that could land him on Injured Reserve.
Starter: Bryan Johnson
Backup: Marc Edwards
Wide Receiver: Muhsin Muhammad has his job locked up, while the honor to start opposite of him remains up in the air. Justin Gage and Bernard Berrian will battle in Bourbonnais with the speedier option coming out on top. The Bears have a lot of young talent available, which may land Airese Currie on IR, if his foot doesn't heal quickly.
Starter: Desmond Clark
Backups: Dustin Lyman, John Gilmore
Offensive Line: The unit is better than a year ago and thus deeper. Former starters are now backups and the unit that surrendered 66 sacks a year ago will be a distant memory.
Defensive Line: The Bears are looking for more sacks from the front four. Alex Brown and Adewale Ogunleye are capable of each reaching double-digits. All signs point to Tommie Harris becoming a Pro Bowl caliber defensive tackle. While Terry Johnson could challenge Ian Scott for a starting role, it will not come without a fight.
Cornerback: The depth at the top three is solid, but an injury could quickly turn this unit into a question mark. Jerry Azumah and Charles Tillman are healthy after both fighting injuries last season. Nathan Vasher led the team in interceptions as a rookie and steps into the nickel role.
Safeties: The two Mike's give the Bears stability in the secondary. Mike Green moves to free safety and needs to pickup his interception totals to justify staying on the field. Mike Brown has the aggressive nature in his play to be an elite strong safety. There is also starting experience behind Green and Brown, which makes this position among the deepest on the team.
Specialists: Doug Brien takes over for Paul Edinger and is expected to be an upgrade over what the team has had from the kicking game the past two seasons. Brad Maynard and Patrick Mannelly are both among the best at their positions.
Kicker: Doug Brien
Punter: Brad Maynard
Long snapper: Patrick Mannelly
There are not going to be a lot of surprises this training camp, but among the veterans on the bubble are T Marc Colombo and WR Eddie Berlin. Defensively seventh round pick LB Rod Wilson may end up on the practice squad. After two years with the team as an undrafted free agent, Cameron Worrell appears to be on the outside looking in.
