3. Dominique Robinson triples his sack total

When you put it like that, it sounds really bold. However, it is true that Dominique Robinson only had 1.5 sacks, so getting 4.5 or five sacks next year is all that this is asking for. Still, there are plenty of fans who are ready to give up on Robinson and say that even five sacks next year is impossible. However, it is in the cards.

We knew that Robinson was not going to do much as a rookie. That was why he fell in the draft; he was raw as a wide receiver coming out of high school. He just switched to defense and to the line, so this is all new to him.

Athletically, he has the traits; it just has to come together. In week one, he added a sack and a half and did not record another for the rest of the year. Still, it at least speaks to the idea that they come in bunches.

The Chicago Bears fans want them to sign a new edge rusher, but they may be relying on a second-year jump from Dominique Robinson. It would not take a huge leap to triple his sack total, so that will be on the table this year.
