Bears’ 2005 Draft class all but wiped out

September 24th, 2008 - 6:47 am

With the release of wide receiver Mark Bradley, the Chicago Bears’ 2005 Draft class is just about dried up.  The lone remaining player from one of, if not the worst of Jerry Angelo’s draft classes is current starting quarterback Kyle Orton.

Here’s a look back at how that class was selected:

Rnd Pick Player Po. School
1 4 Cedric Benson RB Texas
2 39 Mark Bradley WR Oklahoma
4 106 Kyle Orton QB Purdue
5 140 Airese Currie WR Clemson
6 181 Chris Harris FS Louisiana-Monroe
7 220 Rod Wilson LB South Carolina

That’s a pretty bad class and Chris Harris may be the only pick saving it from being a complete failure. Plus, Kyle Orton as a fourth round pick is not all that bad, either.

I want to thank reader Maelvampyre, who, on the syndication of this blog on SportingNews, pointed out the fact that Orton is the last man standing.
