So with day two of padded practices in the books, let's take a look at what's happened.

So, impressions. Shea against James Brown could either be a bad thing (McClellin can't beat an UDFA tackle) or a good thing (Brown might provide a competent tackle). I wouldn't worry too much about McClellin though at this point, we knew he was going to be a bit of a developmental project yet able to contribute in pass-rushing situations, so it's all part of his learning process. But if Brown continues playing like this, he may carve out a spot for himself, at least as a swing tackle. I wouldn't pencil him into the starting left tackle spot, though, and certainly not based off the early preseason - between Webb and Williams, they'll exercise their options first until nothing is left.

It's fair to see why the cornerbacks might be struggling early on here, as Brandon Marshall is unlike anything they've seen in camp in, well... yeah. But also, a lot of people are keeping eyes on the Bears' new passing game, including the receivers. Interesting that nothing was made of Evan Rodriguez in the passing game today versus everything we heard yesterday.

What did you find interesting about today's practice?
