I'm sure that the culture of the Bears' locker room, which includes Jay Cutler's presence and leadership, has helped Brandon Marshall.

After being diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, Marshall not only proactively sought treatment but created a foundation to raise awareness about mental illness and advocate for those suffering from it. In terms of football, he has become one of the main leaders on the Bears, taking young receivers under his wing and welcoming several of his teammates to his home in Florida, where they worked out together and did team-bonding activities such as paintballing, pottery and go-cart racing. Like I said, Marshall should be commended for the type of person he has become on and off the field.

All of the Bears draft picks, even the ones from Pac-12 schools, are permitted to participate in the offseason program, including the OTAs. For those who don't know, 2013 first-round pick Kyle Long was not able to take part last year because his class at Oregon didn't graduate until late in the spring. The fact that he didn't practice until training camp (except for rookie minicamp) makes his emergence into a Pro Bowler even more impressive.
