The countdown until training camp is on. As we wait until training camp battles to begin and the roster shakes up, we will also be counting down the Chicago Bears roster from 90 to 1. We will be looking at which players have the chance to make the biggest impact on the roster.

We are down to number 67 overall on our list.

Chicago Bears 2022 roster ranking: No. 67 Lachavious Simmons

2021 Ranking: 58

2020 ranking: 57 

The first two seasons for Lachavious Simmons has seen in about in the same range. He was a bit below the top 53, but in 2021, he found his way onto the 53-man roster.

Before training camp in 2021, it was unclear where exactly he would settle in on the offensive line, but that is when he found a role at right tackle and stuck on it.

Simmons was able to get onto the field in 2021, but most fans will remember him for getting thrown to the wolves against the Bucs in a blowout loss. Simmons had no business being out there, and the Bucs defensive line teed off on him.

When the Chicago Bears saw Simmons on display, they realized that it was best to make sure he did not see the field again.

While you could make the case that this was a learning experience, and he will be better in year three, this is another player that Ryan Pace drafted, not Ryan Poles. Poles has both Teven Jenkins and Larry Borom getting work on the right side.

He signed Shon Coleman, and Julien Davenport to compete as well as UDFA Jean Delance. Nothing Poles did makes you think he even wants to see Simmons on the practice squad.

Simmons was a draft pick, he beat out another draft pick in Arlington Hambright, and considering he has NFL experience at tackle, he has to get inside the top 70 of our ranking. However, you could see someone lower on the list sneak into the practice squad if Poles see nothing positive from Simmons in the coming months.
