4. Charles Leno Jr

Drafted: 7th Round, 2014

I think there's a legitimate argument that Leno is one of, if not the, best draft picks the Bears have made over the last decade. He's the only 7th rounder that they've drafted in the last decade to be named to a Pro Bowl, and is also the only player from that draft class (which includes Kyler Fuller and Pat O'Donnell) to still be on an active roster.

During his seven years with the Bears, Leno played over 100 games (102) at tackle, starting 94 of them. He played 16 games in six of the seven years he was in Chicago – the lone exception being his rookie season – and started every game of the season for them over the last five years. Fans can debate exactly how good his peaks were, but Leno was as reliable as they come for the Bears, and has since been the same in Washington. He's also active in his community, being named the Commanders' nominee for the annual Walter Payton Man-of-the-Year award in 2022.
