2. Curtis Conway

Sitting no. 6 on the Bears' all-time receiving list (no. 2 among wide receivers) is Curtis Conway. A first-round pick out of USC back in 1993, Conway came into the NFL with a whole lot of hype and would go on to have the best overall career of any receiver in that draft class, finishing his 12 years with 8,230 receiving yards and 52 touchdowns. He came in as both a receiver and an experienced return man in both punt and kickoff.

With the Bears, Conway caught 329 passes for 4,428 yards and 31 touchdowns while playing in Chicago from 1993-1999. His best season as a pro came in Chicago, too, back in 1995 when he caught a career-high 12 touchdowns to go along with 62 receptions for 1,037 yards.

Conway's career highs in receptions (81 in 1996), touchdowns (12 in 1995) and career-long reception (85 yards in 1994) all came with Chicago. If you wanted to make an argument that Conway should be no. 1 on this list, you'd certainly have some backing. He was a pro's pro.

Fun fact: Conway married the daughter of Muhammad Ali, Laila Ali back in 2007. Laila was also a boxing champion, just like her father.
