9. Jeremy Langford, RB - 2015

4th round , Pick 106

To many, calling a fourth-round running back that didn't pan out a bad pick is crazy. However, Langford rushed for 537 yards and six touchdowns behind Matt Forte as a rookie. Forte decided to part ways with the Bears after the 2015 season, leaving Langford a chance to become the starter.

Unfortunately for Langford, the Bears decided to draft running back Jordan Howard in the fifth round of the 2016 draft. Drafting Howard gave Langford competition in the running back room, which he ended up losing. That meant Langford would be the running back two again in 2016. His second season didn't go as well, as he only rushed for 200 yards and four touchdowns.

After the 2016 season, Langford was released from the Bears and spent time with the Jets and Dolphin practice squads before signing with the Falcons in 2018. As a Falcon, Langford had nine rushes for 23 yards and a touchdown. After his stint with the Falcons, Langford was out of the NFL.

8. Jonathan Bullard, DE - 2016

3rd Round, Pick 72

Bullard being on this list may surprise some since he was a starting pass rusher for the Minnesota Vikings this past season. Despite that fact, Bullard was nothing more than a rotational pass rusher in Chicago, only being designated as a starter five times.

Throughout three seasons with the Bears, Bullard gathered 62 tackles, nine tackles for loss, two sacks, and one forced fumble. While those are decent numbers for a rotational edge rusher, the Bears felt that it was time to move on after the 2018 season.

After leaving the Bears Bullard had stops in Arizona, Seattle and Atlanta before landing with the Vikings. The fact Bullard bounced around so much before finding a starting job means the Bears probably made a good decision by not keeping him.
