In the 90’s, with the Bears playing good football, they did not have too many top ten picks. They had just three in the decade.

In 1990, the Bears chose safety Mark Carrier out of Southern California. He had a solid career in Chicago, being named NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year and playing in three Pro Bowls.

In his rookie season of 1990, Carrier led the NFL with 10 interceptions, which also was the record for most interceptions by a Bears player in franchise history.

Carrier was also a hard hitter, helping continue the tradition of hard hitting Bears and the title Monsters of the Midway.

In 1993, the Bears again picked a Southern California player, getting wide receiver Curtis Conway with their seventh pick.

Conway played in seven seasons with the Bears. In his twelve year career, he had three one thousand yard seasons, two of them with the Bears.

In 1998, with pick number five, the Bears went with Penn State running back Curtis Enis. Enis played in only four seasons, three of them with the Bears.

Enis held out in a contract dispute after getting drafted and missed almost a month of training camp and two exhibition games. When he finally did get in, he was not effective. He made one start in his rookie season before tearing a ligament in his knee. In 36 games as a Bear, Enis compiled 1,497 yards and 4 touchdowns.
