NightLink: Final Thoughts From Bourbonnais

New, comments

Brad Biggs wrote a great article on some of his thoughts from camp, focusing on some of the players who don't get the coverage that others do.  I'll include some of the highlights, but make sure mosey on over and read the full article.

Devin Aromashodu: Wide receiver flashed some ability at times during camp but the Bears have a catch-22 when it comes to getting him action with the first team in preseason. They're only doing so much with three-wide packages and building chemistry between Jay Cutler and starters Devin Hester and Earl Bennett is much more important.

Josh Beekman: Would be remiss in not mentioning that the arrow is pointing up for him. Probably projects as a center though because of his size.

Earl Bennett: Quietly had a solid camp. We'll see how that translates.

Alex Brown: The focus is on Tommie Harris and Mark Anderson returning to form but Brown might be better with Rod Marinelli on board. He did well rushing on Orlando Pace in camp.

Desmond Clark: Guy gets craftier as he gets older and still is smooth enough to run the seam route.

Rashied Davis: Got more work with the ones over the final week of camp.

Marcus Freeman: Will be looking for him in the second half on Saturday night. Didn't see a lot in training camp but it takes time for rookies to fit in, even on the practice field.

Corey Graham: If the cornerbacks come back healthy and there isn't a spot for him on defense, he ought to be a mainstay on special teams.

Marcus Harrison: Wouldn't be surprising to see him get action with the ones vs. the Giants. The defense needs him to provide a consistent interior push.

Hunter Hillenmeyer: Went mostly unnoticed but he played well at Buffalo and might be in a better position now that he's back in the middle.

Johnny Knox: Did not look interested in going across the middle where the big boys are in the Buffalo game. Keep an eye on that.

Lance Louis: Was worked a lot at left tackle but I am convinced that was out of need. You don't see any left tackles in the league that are 6-3. He's athletic but will have to find a home inside at guard.

D.J. Moore: As one coach said, the smaller cornerback is learning how to work. He's always going to have to work against being listed at 5-9 (generous listing?).

Frank Omiyale: Did pretty well vs. Tommie Harris in one-on-one drills this past week.
