3. Can Terrell Lewis make the Chicago Bears roster?

Terrell Lewis has always been a talent. That is why he was starting at Alabama, and that is why he went in the third round despite having injury questions. Unfortunately, those questions have followed him to the NFL as well. Lewis has six sacks in three seasons, but he has missed at least five games every year in his NFL career, and the Rams moved on after his third season.

This is a make-or-break year for Lewis to prove that he still belongs in the NFL. All reports are that he is definitely still there when it comes to athletic potential and physical upside. He can rush the passer. Now, can he get in and out of games without any issues? That will be the real question.

As much as you want to save him for the regular season, the Chicago Bears have to see him replicate what he is doing in practice against other teams and then show the durability to fight for the next game. If Lewis can get significant snaps in all three preseason games and he walks away healthy, he is going to make the roster. This is up to him.
