3. Terrell Lewis, DE

Another defensive end who should find a spot on this roster is former third-round pick Terrell Lewis out of Alabama. The fourth-year pro seems to have found a home on this Bears defense after three tough years with the Los Angeles Rams.

Lewis really came on during the preseason, which was a beautiful sight to see if you are a Bears fan. Of course, defensive end was a spot where the Bears desperately needed help. Whether that was via a free agent signing like Yannick Ngakoue, or someone stepping up in-house, the Bears just needed help.

Fortunately, Lewis was one of a couple guys to step up at the position. Over the course of his preseason, Lewis was credited with five quarterback pressures, 3.0 sacks, two hurries and two forced fumbles. He also made four stops.

At a position which many fans are watching as roster cuts come into focus, Lewis should absolutely make this team. Not only that, but Lewis should have earned himself a decent amount of playing time, too.
