RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Paea made some positive progress in his second season as a space clogger in the middle of the defensive line. While his light tackle and sack totals make him far from a viable IDP option, he should allow the rest of his linemates to remain productive.
After essentially being red-shirted last season, look for Paea to make a much bigger impact. He's snaps increased every game in the second half of the year, and with the Bears being big proponents of rotating tackles during the game, a break out season could be in the making.
The Bears traded up in the second round to select the bench press monster, in hopes that he could contribute right away. He may not start, but Paea will be a great addition to the Bears' defensive tackle rotation in 2011.
