The Bears are barely a week into training camp, but some players are already beginning to turn heads. Here are a few players who have made a name for themselves and are worth checking out if you make the trip down to Bourbonnais.

Chris Conte, No. 47: In the first 11-on-11 drill between the offense and defense, Conte picked off Jay Cutler's pass. Later, he broke up a pass that he said should have been an interception. Look for him to try to disrupt the offense more.

Jon Bostic, No. 57: The second-round draft pick has big shoes to fill at linebacker -- Brian Urlacher's. The hard work he has already put in, his attitude, and performance on the field has already turned defensive coordinator Mel Tucker's head.

Joe Anderson, No. 19: The receiver has gotten more opportunities to shine as Brandon Marshall smartly rests his hip. He made a big catch from Cutler on Monday, and is also focused on making a mark on special teams.

Jonathan Scott, No. 79: Jermon Bushrod strained his calf during warm-ups on Monday, and Scott started on the left side of the line in his place. Bushrod's injury will give Scott a chance to show he can compete for a spot on the line.

Kyle Long, No. 75: Speaking of offensive line competition, the first-round draft pick is battling James Brown for the starting spot at right guard. The Bears are finding Long isn't quite where he needs to be yet. The battle in training camp will show if he's ready or not.
