Is Jon Bostic going to start at one of the two linebacker spots along with Lance Briggs? -- @KLynch721 from Twitter
Since January, I’ve said D.J. Williams is the man to beat out at middle linebacker and that is where Bostic is listed as a co-starter with the veteran Williams. I still would give the edge to Williams at this point but even if Bostic doesn’t start in the base package, it certainly looks like he will have a prominent role in the nickel defense.
Haven't heard much of Ka'Deem Carey at camp so far and he is listed fourth on the first depth chart. Any concern he doesn't make team? -- @tbo41fan from Twitter
It’s not unheard of for teams to cut fourth-round draft picks before the start of the season, but it doesn’t happen very often. The backup running back position is mighty fluid as we enter preseason. A lot could happen at that position. It was interesting to see Shaun Draughn listed second behind Matt Forte. Draughn has good size and he catches the ball well out of the backfield and that probably has caught the attention of the coaching staff.
I am concerned the Bears are going to miss Devin Hester more than they think. Are you? -- @LincolnStFan from Twitter
It’s really impossible to draw many conclusions on the return game until the preseason games begin. So, I don’t know if you can be more concerned right now than you were, say, in April. The Bears didn’t want to pay Hester $3 million a season to be a return man. Let’s see what Chris Williams can do in the punt game and how the coaching staff goes about looking at different options on kickoffs.
