The Bears have been pretty bad in talent evaluation recently. Jarron Gilbert was released for example on roster cut down day. We currently have three young d lineman on our roster which potentially may be contributors in situations during the season. harrison, Melton,Wootton, and Turner. Melton has become the third-down pass rusher as a tackle. Every now and then we see Melton arriving to hit the QB a second too late. He is slowly becoming better and better each game. He still has a long way to go however. Harrison is a strange case. His play has disappeared and he has not made much of an impact.
I'm very interested in our young d ends though. So after the release of Anderson and Charles Grant it is assumed that Wootton would take Mark Anderson's place, and Turner will take Grant's place. We haven't gotten to see much from Wootton which is a bit disappointing. I try to keep track when he is on the field. Also now that Turner is on the 53-man roster will he take Wootton's place on game days? Lovie says Turner can rush the passer. The article also says that Turner was doing special team preparation so it is a strong indication of dressing him on game day. What do you guys think about Wootton and Turner? Should they deserve more playing time? Are they potentially the future of the D-line. Will they make a contribution this year? Also what are your thoughts on Melton aswell?
