The past couple of days have been all about NFL teams finalizing their 53-man rosters, and the Chicago Bears' is pretty much set.

As the team prepares for Week 1, now, fans are still a little caught up on roster questions. Did the Bears get all their decisions right? Which ones did they get wrong?

Looking at the entirety of the roster, one thing is for sure: there are a few guys who won't make it through the season. Let's look at four players, in particular, who will not hold up throughout the 2023 season and ultimately find themselves cut.

1. Doug Kramer, G/C

The Bears' offensive line is going to be in flux for a little while. Until Teven Jenkins returns from injury, nobody knows exactly how the starting five will shake out. Between Cody Whitehair, Lucas Patrick and the newly-acquired Dan Feeney, the Bears have options at both guard and center.

For now, Doug Kramer has made the roster. However, once Jenkins returns, he will be an easy cut. Since being drafted, Kramer just hasn't looked the part as an NFL player. He is a bit too small and not powerful enough to withstand the bigger, heftier defensive tackles.

Kramer is a nice story coming from the University of Illinois last year, but again, once Jenkins gets back, he will be easy to part ways with and ultimately find himself on the practice squad.
