22. Cade McNown (1998, Pick #12)
One of the five quarterbacks taken in the 1998 NFL Draft, Cade McNown was a spark plug quarterback from UCLA who didn’t have the desired measurables which teams sought, but was dubbed with the ever vague “winner” description. In the great folly of quarterbacks that the Chicago Bears have had in franchise history, McNown is right up there with the worst.
After taking McNown with the 12th pick in said 1998 Draft, he showed flashes of promise in his rookie year, but played poorly and dealt with repeated injuries in his second season, finishing with a 1-6 record as a starter. The Bears decided to cut their losses with McNown after just two seasons, trading him away prior to the start of the 2001 season.
