2001-2010 All-Bears Team: Linebacker #3

New, comments

After this, just one safety and one cornerback to go on defense... Cornerback on Wednesday, then the Safety will go up on Saturday. For now though, let's get the third linebacker. Who's joining Urlacher and Briggs? Follow me past the jump for our last look at the candidates...

Oh, and you can still vote for the first safety spot right here!

Hunter Hillenmeyer: 5th-round draft pick of the Packers in 2003, never played a snap for them, joined the right side the same year. Eight-year Bear, played 13 games in every year except 2010 (concussion symptoms). NFLPA representative. Very serviceable starter, filled in at MLB when Urlacher was injured. 7.0 Sacks, two interceptions, six forced fumbles including four in 2009, 289 tackles with 93 assists.

Rosevelt Colvin: Played for the Bears from 1999 to 2002 as a fourth-round draft pick. In 2001 and 2002, played all 32 games with 28 starts. 21 sacks, two interceptions, six fumbles forced, 116 tackles with 18 assists.

Warrick Holdman: Another fourth-round pick of the Bears in 1999. Left the Bears in 2003 for Cleveland, then from there to Washington, and retired in 2006. Since 2001, has 1.5 sacks, an interception, 12 passes defended, five forced fumbles, and 171 tackles with 42 assists, including his 2001 campaign of 95 tackles with 14 assists.

Nick Roach: Joined the team in 2007 out of Northwestern as an undrafted free agent; started 30 of 48 games he's participated in. Has two sacks, six passes defended, three forced fumbles, and eighty tackles with 35 assists.

This one should be closer than the other two... Got another option? Vote "Other" and tell us who we missed!
