Best Bears Draft Picks of All-Time: KR Devin Hester

See what I did there?  While the Chicago Bears' $40M project to turn the greatest returner of all-time into a full time wide receiver might not be paying dividends, the 2nd round selection (57th overall) in the 2006 Draft is most definitely worthy to be mentioned in this series.

Hester has repeatedly single-handedly changed the outcome of football games as a returner, and often without ever having to touch the football.  Week after week, you hear coaches, players,  and even owners talking about how they aren't going to kick it to him, they're going to kick it out of bounds, etc.

And punter Todd Sauerbrun found out the hard way what happens when you play macho "I ain't scared of Hester" and decide to be a dufus.

Devin Hester is one of Jerry Angelo's Draft gems, without a doubt.
