Jerry Angelo always maintained that the bust factor with wide receivers made them poor risks as first-round picks. David Terrell was Mark Hatleys last pick before Angelo replaced him, leaving Angelo with an object lesson and a bust at the eighth-overal pick of 2001.

The Bears second round has not always been any better for Chicago, for that matter, something the organization hopes Alshon Jeffery can change, and fast.

Pick No.
