Former Michigan standout David Terrell was the 2000 College Football News and CNN/Sports Illustrated All-America firs team squads. He was the first player in Michigan history to have multiple 1000-yard receiving seasons. The former FedEx Orange Bowl MVP was supposed to be a sure bet in the NFL and the Bears thought so too.
The Bears drafted Terrell with the eighth overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft. He spent four seasons in Chicago and went on to become the team’s worst wide receiver they drafted.
In his first season, Terrell had 34 receptions for just barely 415 yards and four touchdowns. He went on to have 94 receptions and just five touchdowns over the next three seasons.
Terrell was cut after the 2004 season. He attempted to latch on with the New England Patriots and Denver Broncos but was cut in 2005 by the Broncos after appearing in just one game.
Last year, Terrell was in the news again after being arrested and charged with a felony for distribution of marijuana and misdemeanor battery. He was later acquitted on all charges.
Terrell will forever be immortalized in Chicago along with Cade McNown and Curtis Enis as three of the worst draft picks for the Bears over the last 20 years.
