Chicago Bears: 15 Greatest First Round Picks of All-Time
5 of 16
The most recent of first-round selections to make the list, and shockingly, Kyle Long is a product of a Phil Emery draft. Long is entering his sixth season with the Bears and this season is a critical one for Long.
Long earned Pro Bowl berths his first three seasons in the league. His last two seasons have been derailed by injuries and his play has been hampered because of it.
If Long gets the injury bug behind him and can play another three to five seasons at a high level, his spot on this list will climb. However, there is doubt with Long’s health right now. If he can’t recover and continues to struggle with injuries, it’s not even out of the realm of possibility that 2018 could be Long’s last year in Chicago.
