What do you think will be the best position battle in training camp?
Harwood Heights, Illinois
Larry Mayer- The Bears are deep at receiver and the competition for reps will be intense in training camp and the preseason. But three or four of the wideouts will likely become regular contributors on offense. In terms of a position where only one player is on the field, I’d say that the battle for the nickel back job between veteran Buster Skrine and rookie sixth-round draft pick Duke Shelley will be an intriguing one to watch when the pads come on in Bourbonnais. Both players have impressed me with their tight coverage and ability to break up passes in OTA practices.
I know this is the battle I wil be watching closely. As Shelley is my Pet Cat, I will be pulling for him to win this battle, straight up. Duke vs. Buster, sounds like a 1980's boxing card!
