But he will by midseason.
The Chicago Bears are going to give Major Wright every chance to secure his spot, so chances are he will open the year as the starter.
That being said, I think most of us can agree that Wright simply just isn't working out. He makes too many mistakes and is constantly injured.
Hardin will be the answer, but it will take a little bit of time, especially since Wright has experience in the defense that gives him an advantage going into camp.
Add that with the fact that Hardin is going to be playing safety as opposed to his collegiate position of cornerback and you have to award the kid some time to adjust.
Rest assured though, Hardin will be the starter by, at the latest, midseason.
Prediction: Hardin will take over at Wright's safety spot, across from Chris Conte before Week 6.
