One of the biggest questions going into training camp is who will be the starting left tackle for the Bears this season.
Chris Williams is a former first-round pick from 2008, but he has struggled to distinguish himself at left tackle.
J'Marcus Webb was a seventh-round pick in 2010, but he too has struggled.
While the battle is far from over, Webb has emerged as the early leader. He has received the bulk of the snaps with the starters this week, while Williams has spent some time at right tackle.
While Webb is the early favorite, even he cautioned about reading too much into it. Via ESPN:
"It’s definitely not over. It’s Day 4 in pads, and it’s definitely not over," Webb said. "Coach (Mike) Tice just wants to see improvement every single day. I’m not sure (whether Williams will work with the starters again at left tackle). That’s up to Tice and how he feels about it. I’ve just got to take it for what it is and keep grinding."
It will be interesting to see if Webb can hold onto the job through the preseason games. For now, the job of left tackle is Webb's to lose.
