The 25 Greatest Chicago Bears of All-Time

24. Joe Stydahar

Career Stats: 84 games played, 4x All-Pro, 4x Pro Bowler, 3x NFL Champion

While the Bears may lack a history of great — or even good — quarterback play, they do have a fair share of elite maulers. The No. 6 pick in 1936 out of West Virginia, Stydahar was the Bears’ first-ever NFL draft pick and the first lineman drafted. The left tackle was regarded as one of the best players in football during his peak. Stydahar was named an All-Pro four-straight years (1937-1940) and helped lead Chicago to three NFL Championships. The former Navy lieutenant was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1967.
