The Green Bay Packers used their first-round pick this year on Lukas Van Ness to help bolster their future pass rush. The move made sense after they watched their rival, the Chicago Bears, draft right tackle Darnell Wright with the tenth overall pick of the draft. Good news for the Packers, Wright is off to a bit of a struggle at mandatory minicamp.
A Green Bay Packers rival rookie struggles in minicamp
According to Brad Biggs with the Chicago Tribune, Wright let linebacker Terrell Lewis beat him three times during the Bears’ two-minute drill. Lewis, who was signed to the Bears practice squad last December, earned two sacks of the rookie.
First day of #Bears minicamp has wrapped up.
If it was an open training camp practice, there would be buzz about Terrell Lewis, who the team picked up last December.
Lewis blew past RT Darnell Wright on 3 snaps in an end-of-half series, creating 2 sacks.
