The countdown until the Chicago Bears report to training camp is on. With that, the countdown of the roster is on. We are counting the roster down from 90 all the way to number one, focusing on which players will have the biggest impact on the roster.

We are down to number 38 overall.

Chicago Bears 2022 roster ranking: No. 38 Equanimeous St. Brown

Equanimeous St. Brown is a player who only jumps into the top 40 based on hope. On the Green Bay Packers last season, he was on the edge of not making the roster. As a seventh-round pick, his career-high in receiving yards was 328.

Over the next two years, he only adds 215 yards. He was not quite in the mix and most of us viewed the Packers as a group with questionable depth behind Alan Lazard.

On the flip side, St. Brown is a big-time athlete. He worked with Luke Getsy, who is the offensive coordinator, and the Chicago Bears went out and made him one of their first signings.

The money was not big and it does not guarantee his roster spot. Still, when you look at his money and the timing of the signing in comparison to names such as Dante Pettis, David Moore, and Tajae Sharpe.

Still, all three of them have shown more production in spurts than Equanimeous St. Brown, so it is hard to put Equanimeous St. Brown so far ahead of the other names.

That is why he slips ahead, to a spot where he could be number four, or perhaps even number three. He could also show the Bears why the Packers had less upside on the field than him at times, and it is because he cannot be trusted.

That gets him inside the top 40, but we cannot go much higher. Number 38 feels about right there.
