Greatest draft picks in Chicago Bears history

In spirit of draft weekend, Larry Mayer, Senior Writer with the Chicago Bears counted down the top ten greatest draft picks in Chicago Bears history. 

Drum roll please... 
Surprised that your favorite Bear didn't make the list? Out of the top ten, nine are in the Hall of Fame. The only non-HOF'er is Richard Dent. Dent's teammate Dan Hampton, made the Hall and was not on this list. Dent belongs in the Hall.
No one made it from the 90's, not surprisingly. It's too early to tell if any of the player's in this decade will make it. The best bet would be Brian Urlacher. He still has to continue to build a legacy and a Super Bowl this year would help solidify his place in Chicago Bears history.

    The Chicago Bears need all four phases (offense, defense, special teams and the fans) of the game to work together to pave the way to victory. This is the unofficial 4th Phase blog. You can follow the blog on Twitter, @4thPhase or #4thPhase.
