Bears Depth Chart: Chicago Sets First Unofficial Depth Chart

Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago passed along the first unofficial depth chart of the 2012 NFL season on Monday. The lineup featured a few surprises, including at left tackle where OT J'Marcus Webb will take the starting role and OL Chris Williams, a former first-round draft pick, will start the preseason in a reserve role. Meanwhile, rookie OL James Brown, a Chicago native and undrafted free agent, assumes the third-string spot.
