RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brock Vereen.
Vereen suited up in all 16 games for the Bears last season as a rookie fourth-round draft pick, collecting 39 tackles and one interception. He didnít see high snap totals on defense until late in the season, and was often prone to showing a lack of physicality as a tackler. Those issues arenít atypical for a first-year player, and the Bearsí new coaching staff remains confident that Vereenís speed and ranginess will allow him to develop into a difference maker on defense. Vereen will battle incumbent Ryan Mundy for the starting strong safety job in training camp, but even if he fails to come away with the job, the 23-year-old is poised to see his snap count increase in his second season.
A fourth-round draft pick out of Minnesota, Vereen will merit consideration for a starting safety job after handling a good portion of the first-team reps during OTAs and minicamp. Both Chris Conte and the since non-tendered Major Wright were disappointments at the position in 2013, so with a strong camp, it wouldn't be a surprise if Vereen started from Week 1. He'll need to beat out Conte, M.D. Jennings, Adrian Wilson and Ryan Mundy for one of the two spots.
