Last year’s surprising fifth-round pick cut was Zack Bowman. But Bowman was later added to the practice squad, got some experience before going on injured reserve, and now he’s a starter (until unfortunately he will probably be hurt again).
I don’t profess to know much about 2009 Bears fifth-round pick LB Marcus Freeman, but I know people were talking about him being the steal of the draft. But it’s no more, as Freeman was cut and not made a member of the Bears’ practice squad.
Can anyone speculate on the reason for the fall from grace?
