Jerry Angelo’s Seventh Best Draft Pick

Johnny Knox-WR-Abilene Christian-Round 5 2009:

Johnny KnoxKnox was selected with a throw-in fifth round pick that came back to the Bears from Denver in the Jay Cutler trade. Knox seemed to be on the bubble prior to final cuts that season, then had a monster final preseason game. In his rookie year he made the Pro Bowl as a kick returner and became nationally known while a ballboy chased him all the way down the field during his kickoff return for a touchdown. Despite being small and not very physical, he has been the Bears’ most prolific receiver since he joined the team. The only unfortunate part of making that statement is that with the Bears, that isn’t saying much.
