Worst Bears Draft Picks of All-Time: RB Rashaan Salaam

New, comments

A Heisman Trophy, a 2,000 yard rushing season at Colorado, and a unanimous All American selection led the junior to declare for the NFL Draft. A promising rookie season in Chicago setting the franchise rookie rushing record had some Bears fans thinking he would be a special player. But we would be wrong... very wrong...

Salaam had a problem hanging onto the ball as his nine fumbles as a rookie can attest. He only played 2 more years in Chicago and had 14 fumbles in 31 career games as a Bear.

The entire 1995 draft was pretty bad, but Salaam as the 21st overall selection ends up on the Bust list.

Where would you rank him all time Bears Busters?
