Best/worst first-round picks since 2000: No. 3

Here is the third in a five-part series examining the Chicago Bears' five best-and-worst first round draft choices since 2000.

#3 Best

Name: Greg Olsen, TE, Miami

Pick: 31

Year: 2007

Seasons with Bears: 2007-10

Summary: Olsen's career took off after the Bears traded the tight end to the Carolina Panthers in the summer of 2011. Olsen earned his first trip to the Pro Bowl in 2014 after catching 84 passes for 1,008 yards and six touchdowns. But even in Chicago, Olsen displayed signs of being a gifted pass-catcher. Olsen's best year with the Bears occurred in 2009 when he made 60 receptions for 612 yards and eight touchdowns. The Panthers believed Olsen was just scratching the surface. Carolina's evaluation turned out to be spot on.

#3 Worst

Name: David Terrell, WR, Michigan

Pick: 8

Year: 2001

Seasons with Bears: 2001-04

Summary: Terrell lasted only four seasons in Chicago, leaving the Bears with only 128 catches for 1,602 yards and nine touchdowns. Hardly numbers befitting the No. 8 overall pick of the draft. In fairness, Terrell played for some less than stellar offensive coordinators, but he just never developed into the kind of player the Bears thought they were getting out of Michigan. Terrell's been out of the league since a brief stint in 2005 with the Denver Broncos.
