Not everyone. I didn't want it. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

The Bears finished the season with the league’s second-best pass blocking efficiency of any offensive line, and this was yet another team without a real weak link. Rookie James Daniels ended up earning their lowest grade at 62.3 overall, but Charles Leno Jr., Bobby Massie, and Cody Whitehair were all over 70.0.

If it ain't broke don't fix it. Plus Daniels held up great against Donald so he may be in his Natural position.

I can't believe Daniels graded average. I know it was one game but he shut Donald down.

Actually listening to Nagy I don't think anything is being floated. A reporter had a pre-determined he wanted to write. They may very will switch. It is worth trying, but I'll believe it when they actually swap with the 1st team in training camp. Having watched these guys up close in training camp I remain unconvinced that Whithair would actually be better in the NFL as an undersized guard than he is at center. And I have seen nothing in NFL games that shows that either.

Undersized? He's the same size as Daniels. He's the same size as Zack Martin. He's bigger than the Bears' left tackle.

Whitehair is two pounds lighter than Leno, wab, LOL

But more to the point: he and Leno and Daniels and Long are all within ten pounds of each other. There's every indication that's the size the Bears want on the OL.


Cody Whitehair - 6'4 310

Charles Leno - 6'3 306

Yeah, I'll eat crow on that, I was still looking at draft profiles.

Your larger point — that Whitehair is not at all undersized — stands.

James Daniels is going to play center, #Bears coach Matt Nagy said. That puts Cody Whitehair at left guard

The Bears OL is going to take another big step forward this year.

Happy with it, I think they’re both in their more natural positions.

Sounds like he's been snapping the ball cleanly, so that's a +

I know this isn't hugely surprising but I think it will have a pretty big difference. From Trubisky getting the ball a little cleaner to Whitehair being able to concentrate on just being a beast to Daniels utilising every last bit of his mobility.

Very happy to hear this.
