Tenure: 1983-1994

Former Bears guard Mark Bortz was a part of that heralded 1983 NFL Draft, which is known primarily for its quarterbacks like John Elway and Dan Marino, but the Bears went in a different direction and still came out looking great. Among others, this class for Chicago included Bortz, Jimbo Covert, Richard Dent, Willie Gault. Bortz was a key piece of the offensive line that created holes for Walter Payton and he continued his career into the 90s. He holds the franchise records for playoff appearances (13) and playoff games started (12).
