As we countdown until the Chicago Bears report to training camp we will also be counting down the Bears roster from 90 all the way through number one. This will look at who will have the biggest impact on whether the Bears have success or not.

With that in mind, we are all the way down to the 75th overall player.

Chicago Bears 2022 roster ranking: No. 75 Lamar Jackson

Yes, make the Lamar Jackson jokes in the comments. However, this is not the Lamar Jackson so many fans are aware of. This is the Lamar Jackson who played cornerback at Nebraska and was undrafted in 2020.

Jackson actually spent 2020 on the New York Jets roster, starting six games. It was mainly because the Jets had such a thin depth chart, but at the same time speaks well on Jackson that he jumped in so quickly.

Still, when the Jets added some depth to the cornerback room in 2021 it led to Jackson getting cut and pushed to the practice squad.

Jackson spent 2021 with the Jets but was let go at the end of the season, giving him the chance to sign where he wants.

With the cornerback depth chart a bit more questions before the draft, Jackson chose Chicago. He still is going to get a chance to earn a role on the roster.

Still, a UDFA who could not catch on with the Jets is going to have impressed a lot of people to earn a job. There is a chance that he makes the practice squad, but that sounds like a best-case scenario option more than anything at this point.

His youth and experience can help and are why he is not in a number in the 80s. Still, the top 67 players are the practice squad and roster players, and he is on the fringe of that area entering camp.
