I know that the Bears don't have the best offensive line in football. Hell, on paper, they may have one of the worst ones. However, with the right coaching and one or two other additions, they might be alright!

One player that we don't have to worry about on the line is G Cody Whitehair. He was selected in the second round, with the 56th overall pick by the Bears in the 2016 NFL draft. Whitehair started at left guard during the preseason. He was then moved to the starting center position after the team signed veteran guard Josh Sitton. He went on to start all 16 games at center and was named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team.
In 2018, Whitehair played every offensive snap and was named to the Pro Bowl, becoming the first Bears center since Olin Kreutz to play in the all-star game. He was the only Bears player on either side of the ball to participate in every down.
However, Bears writer Jacob infante made a list of superlatives concerning the Bears team and he listed Whitehair as the Bears' most overrated player.
I'm not saying I completely disagree but I feel like the easy answer was clearly Safety Eddie Jackson. I don't think Whitehair gets so much credit from the media while a lot of people outside the Bears circle are still thinking that Jackson is a top safety, which he is not.
