Is the receiving corps as good as it looked throughout minicamp?
It remains to be seen if a go-to guy can emerge and threaten the 1,000-yard barrier, but, if given the choice, Martz would rather have a veteran backup quarterback behind Jay Cutler than another weapon in the passing game.
Are we any closer to knowing who will be where at D-end?
Prepare for Peppers getting plenty of action at either spot in OTAs, just as he did in minicamp, but if he starts to break the huddle more often on one side than the other, we may have our answer.
Will there just as much movement along the interior O-line?
On the other hand, the more Beekman snaps the football between his legs in Kreutz's stead during OTAs, less likely he is to be the starter at left guard and a veteran like Shaffer – or a youngster like Louis – may be the new leader in the clubhouse prior to training camp.
When will the coaching staff give up on Manning at safety?
Yes, he offers a tremendous combination of speed and power and should be a perfect safety in this system, but the coaches need to realize that one plus one is not equaling two with Manning.
Which of the rookies plans to step up and be noticed?
Since none of the rookies really took the bull by the horns in minicamp, it's time to see if any of them can force the issue in OTAs.
