From 90 to one we are counting down the Chicago Bears roster to see who the most valuable players are. This list will focus solely on 2022 and also factor in how influential their presence will be on the Bears’ final record.
With that in mind, we are on to number 79 on our list.
Chicago Bears 2022 roster ranking: No. 79 Isaiah Coulter
Isaiah Coulter is a player who spent the 2021 season with the Chicago Bears, but at the same time, he was not on our roster ranking list, because he did not sign until a week or two into training camp. Things change quickly when the team reports to camp, and this is the downtime in the roster.
Coulter is an interesting name because mostly everyone we have covered has been a UDFA, but he was drafted in round five to the Houston Texans. Coulter stuck around with the Texans in 2020, his rookie season, but rarely saw the field due to injuries. Then, he did not make the roster in 2021, getting cut early into camp with a chance to catch on with Chicago.
Coulter caught on in that he was able to stick on the practice squad and found himself active for three games. However, that is all the further he got, and he did not catch a pass.
Isaiah Coulter is entering year three and has not caught an NFL pass. He is also seeing that Ryan Pace, the GM who signed him is gone. Ryan Poles had no reason to let him go yet, but it does not mean that Poles views him higher than players that Poles is bringing in himself.
The wide receiver room being so thin, the pedigree of a player getting drafted, and only being in his third year are what can push him up to 79th on our list. Still, he is unlikely to make the practice squad at this point, and sits just outside the bottom 10 players entering training camp.
