All Time Best Draft Picks

From Hogs Haven:

SI did a gallery on the best pick in the history of the draft at each number.  The Bears have two of them.

At the number 3 pick in 1965 the Bears picked MLB Dick Butkus, he edged out Barry Sanders.

At the number 4 pick in 1972 the Bears picked RB Walter Payton, he beat out Cleveland QB Otto Graham and Bears RB Gale Sayers.

The sad realization is if you look at the picks in the 30s, you have Keith Bullock at 30, Todd Heap at 31 and Ben Watson at 32.  That doesn't say a lot about picking from those spots.

Any of these you disagree with?
