Last season the Chicago Bears initially scored two pro bowlers in Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall. Three more were added as replacements: Kyle Long, Tim Jennings and Alshon Jeffery. Who, out of those guys, can make this upcoming season's All-Star game?

Kyle Long made the Pro Bowl as a replacement in his rookie season. This year he will be able to prove that status. Long's playing style isn't a secret. He wants to manhandle the big boys up the middle. Look for Kyle Long to prove that he is one of the most tenacious offensive linemen in the NFL this season.

By now we all know Houston's run-stop prowess. He was one of the top run-stopping DEs last season and he was the main man up front for Oakland. He comes to Chicago with a little more help next to him. Look for him to get plenty more sacks with Jared Allen taking up a couple blockers on the other end.

Entering his 7th season, Forte is the prime example of a well-balanced and consistent back. Last season, he scored 12 touchdowns. In the same offense and personnel, Forte is set up to have another highly productive season.

Alshon Jeffery erupted last season and tallied 1,421 yards and 7 touchdowns. This was opposite of fellow Pro Bowler Brandon Marshall. Marshall could have made this list, but look for Jeffery to lead the Bears in receiving stats in 2014. Jeffery made himself known for his Randy Moss-esque catches. Jay Cutler loves to let him go up and get it.

A one-time Pro Bowler, Jay Cutler is primed for an enormous season in 2014. He has all his weapons on hand, with a dynamic Marc Trestman playbook on his side. The biggest question surrounding Cutler is his health. Over his five seasons with the Bears, he has missed 13 total games, playing in all 16 in only his first season. Barring a major injury on offense, Cutler will not only put up huge numbers but will also be a Pro Bowler.
