The Chicago Bear Sophmores in 2013

Shea McClellin, DE
Shea has the most to prove. Only 2.5 sacks and 14 tackles in 2012. While Julius Peppers grabs all the attention, no matter where he lines up, McClellin should have one man to beat.  The main concern for the first rounder is he isn’t even a projected starter. Corey Wooten has been grabbing headlines and if Shea doesn’t impress soon, this competition will be over.  Sure, Shea will still be in the rotation, but that isn’t why he was drafted in the first round.

 

Alshon Jeffrey, WR
Twenty-four receptions and just over 350 yards is hardly the season the Bears expected in 2012. A new offense with better ball distribution and a healthy season will boost this giraffes numbers in 2013.  With Brandon Marshall taking a lot of attention, expect Alshon to have a solid season.  Camp has been an early indicator of Alshons success and although his combine speed wasn’t spectacular, he was able to get behind the defense in 2012.

 

Brandin Hardin, Safety
A serious neck injury ended Brandin Hardin’s first season in Chicago. Expected to add good depth to safety, behind Major Wright and Chris Conte in 2013, it will be interesting to watch him play in the preseason.

 

Rodriguez, TE
Evan Rodriguez was a potential talent and a third round pick. Unfortunately, frequent bouts with law enforcement led to his release this summer.

 

Isaiah Frey, CB
There isn’t much competition at cornerback for the Chicago bears. Pro bowl players Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman are at the top of the depth chart and barring injury that won’t change.
Greg McCoy, CB
Waived by bears.
