Hull would be my choice as well. Actually a pick they didn't make might be two years later when the Bears traded their first round pick to the Packers who selected Mike McCoy. Who did the Bears get....Bob Hyland, Elijah Pitts and Lee Roy Caffey!!!

Not only was Mirer a bad trade with Seattle, but the Seahawks drafted Walter Jones with the Bears pick. Future Hall-of-Fame left tackle wouldn't have hurt.
