    Chicago Bears: Full Position Breakdown and Depth Chart Analysis at Running Back

    The Chicago Bears will be wrapping up their voluntary OTAs later this week before a mandatory minicamp that will take place June 17-19.

    Throughout this offseason, the Bears coaching staff has begun the process of determining what the depth chart is going to look like at each position heading into training camp and eventually the regular season.
    While the Bears have one of the best running backs in the league in Matt Forte, the battle for the likely two spots behind him on the depth chart is going to be one of the more intriguing battles this offseason.
    The team drafted Ka'Deem Carey in the fourth round last month, and he will compete with veterans Michael Ford and Shaun Draughn for the backup spot behind Forte, while undrafted free agent Jordan Lynch is trying to prove that he can successfully make the transition from college quarterback to NFL running back.

    Here is our full position breakdown and depth chart analysis at running back for the Chicago Bears.

    You have to link to the slide show to review it all and it's not really all that in depth but it lays out the way they stack up going into camp;

    #5; Jordan Lynch
    #4; Shaun Draughn
    #3; Michael Ford
    #2; Ka'deem Carey
    #1; Matt Forte

    Looks like Lynch has some heavy lifting ahead of him f he expects to make the final cut. I'd have to believe that has has a pretty good chance to getting past Draughn but from there the climb gets tougher. His best bet may to become a real demon on STeams and convince them to keep him on the roster mostly for that right now. I'm hoping he can make it because of his attitude as much as his talent.
