1. There are going to be more big plays in the passing game
Despite all that speed, Hester and Johnny Knox averaged only 13.3 and 11.7 yards per catch in 2009, respectively, putting both of them outside the top 50 in the league among wideouts that caught at least 10 passes.
2. It's too early to make any conclusions about the tight ends
Clark admitted following OTAs that he has no idea what is in store for the tight ends once Manumaleuna returns to practice, so while now it looks like Martz's aerial assault includes the tight end, that could change once we get to training camp.
3. Nobody has distinguished himself at left guard just yet
Should the Bears give the job to either Louis or Asiata, which is indeed possible, that means a second-year seventh-round pick (Louis) or a second-year undrafted free agent (Asiata) will line up between a six-time Pro Bowl selection (Kreutz) and a former first rounder (Williams).
4. Hester might be the third best wide receiver on this team
It will be interesting to see who ends up being the No. 4 wideout behind Hester, Knox and Aromashodu, as 2009 starter Earl Bennett has struggled – Rashied Davis and Juaquin Iglesias, on the other hand, were strong in OTAs.
5. Don't look for another veteran QB to be added to the mix
Both Cutler and Hanie need all the reps they can get in training camp to get ready for Martz's offense in live-bullet situations, which means sixth-round pick Dan LeFevour will probably be the only other signal caller making the trip to Bourbonnais.
