The Bears will have the No. 7 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, which is slated to be held April 30-May 2 at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago. It's their highest pick since 2005 when they selected running back Cedric Benson at No. 4. The only time the Bears have chosen at No. 7 since 1963 was in 1993 when they picked receiver Curtis Conway. Other notable players they've selected at No. 7 include Hall of Fame center/linebacker Clyde "Bulldog" Turner in 1940 and running back Ronnie Bull, who was named NFL rookie of the year in 1962. The last 10 players selected at No. 7 in the NFL draft have been Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans (2014), Cardinals guard Jonathan Cooper (2013), Buccaneers safety Mark Barron (2012), 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith (2011), Browns cornerback Joe Haden (2010), Raiders receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (2009), Saints defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis (2008), Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (2007), Raiders safety Michael Huff (2006) and Vikings receiver Troy Williamson (2005).
