Shea McClellin is pushing him, but Corey Wootton will remain the starter for the Bears opposite Julius Peppers in 2013, and he'll better his sack totals from 2012 (7). In fact, we predict Wootton will reach the 10-sack range. At training camp, people within the organization raved about how precise Wootton has been with hand placement and how much he's improved at using his height to gain an advantage on opponents.
