It seems as if we all forgot about this football player that is on the roster with all of the talks that have been going on this offseason. The player that I am referring to is Dazz Newsome. Before he sustained his injury last season he had the potential to at least get a few reps. I am of the personal belief that he has an opportunity to be a game-changer. He has the wiggle, the open field ability, and it looks as if he has the speed to be a wildcard for the Bears. This is the scouting report for him per NFL.com

"Competitive, high-energy slot with gadget package and punt return talent to help round out his potential roster flexibility. Newsome has work to do before he can be labelled a polished pro prospect. His pass-catching technique is below average and his route-running is a little too unfocused at this time. However, his short-area footwork and ability to alter his route speed provide hope that he can improve quickly in that department. Punt returning could get him on the field quickly depending on where he lands, but his ceiling will be determined by whether or not he grows from being a catch-and-run talent to a well-rounded target.
**STRENGTHS**
-Makes himself faster through speed variations in his routes.
-Finds his top gear quickly.
-Choppy feet feed body control and directional change in routes.
-Instinctive body positioning and gear down to stack coverage.
-Won't back down and willing to work into the middle of the field.
-Runs with unbridled excitement after the catch.
-Body is split low, creating a balance advantage through contact.
-Could offer immediate help as a punt returner.
-Father and brother both played collegiately at Virginia Tech
**WEAKNESSES**
-Reliant upon energy over technique as route-runner.
-Cornerbacks don't seem to buy what he is selling.
-Too much wasted motion and energy in route fakes.
-Stems and breaks need to become much crisper.
-Not a natural hands catcher.
-Struggles getting catch-ready in time for high throws.
-Inconsistent balance catching on the move."
I believe it is possible for him to clean up his weaknesses and be strong in his strengths, IF he can do that I see him as an underdog weapon that Justin Fields has. Here are some of his college highlights.
