1. Micahel Ojemudia has a chance to make noise with the Chicago Bears this summer

Michael Ojemudia has more draft pedigree than a lot of these names mentioned. He is a former third-round pick, and it was as recent as the 2020 NFL draft. Ojemudia played 852 snaps as a rookie. However, he struggled, and it caused the team to draft Patrick Surtain. That took away his role, and he played 85 snaps the next season.

From there, Vic Fangio, the coach who was there when he was drafted was fired. The new coaching staff clearly did not value him in the way that Fangio did. So, he was cut in his third NFL season. He caught on with the Chicago Bears late into the season but did not get on the field for the team.

Still, he is in his fourth NFL season, and he still has the 2020 season, where there were signs that he could be an NFL player. Ojemudia has the height, weight, and speed to be that player, and maybe some more time has given him that ability.

He will be working with Jaylon Jones as the fourth-team duo in the preseason. He will be hoping to make a name for himself and push someone like Stroman in the coming weeks.
