With about two weeks to go until roster cut-down days, we have tried to identify which players will be locked on for the Chicago Bears roster. There are always surprises, but we have 45 players that we strongly think will make the roster. So, that leaves eight spots where the surprises and drama will come in the final two weeks.

Who are the 15 players most likely to jump into those eight spots?

15. Kendall Williamson may need a year on the Chicago Bears practice squad

Kendall Williamson is a former seventh-round pick from Stanford. He was drafted, so the team has an interest in him, but it was so late that you could not view him much higher than a priority UDFA. So, it should not be a shock that with two weeks to go, he is probably on the outside of the roster looking in,

He is definitely behind the top three safeties, and the team will only keep four or five. The debate comes down to Adrian Colbert, A.J. Thomas, and Williamson. As of now, it is easy to list him as the third of those three on their roster status.

On the depth chart, he is behind them, and he was the last one in the field of those three. The eye test also showed who was better. Williamson looked a bit slow to react late in the preseason opener. Thomas and Colbert are not Pro Bowl-caliber players, but they know how to play in the NFL, and both can serve roles on special teams. Williamson is only getting mentioned because he is a rookie draft pick; it feels like he will not make the roster.
