With the expected demotion of Rex Grossman, the Bears are likely to field a starting offensive lineup at Detroit on Sunday with just two players from GM Jerry Angelo's six draft classes.
RB Cedric Benson and WR Bernard Berrian are the only starters to come on board via the draft.
C Olin Kreutz was drafted by the previous regime, and the rest of the bunch was signed in some form of free agency or brought onboard as a waiver claim -- FB Jason McKie.
Angelo's drafts have consistently done well on defense, even through the middle and late rounds, but help on the offensive side of the ball is missing. The Bears had arguably the finest draft class in the league last season with the production it got from S Danieal Manning, DE Mark Anderson and returner Devin Hester.
Contributions from the 2007 class will be slim until TE Greg Olsen gets more involved, although look for CB Trumaine McBride to potentially get some time with the nickel package if Ricky Manning Jr. is forced into a starting role for Nathan Vasher. McBride or Brandon McGowan figure to be the backup nickel.
