Chris Williams was drafted by the Bears 14th overall in the 2008 NFL Draft. On July 23, 2008, it was announced that he had signed a five year contract with the Bears. Williams missed the camp’s first weekend after sustaining a minor back injury.He was later diagnosed with separate injury, a herniated disc, which required minor surgery to repair.Since then Williams started the 2010 season as the Bears starting left tackle. However, he was injured early during the team’s second game against the Dallas Cowboys, Williams spent the next several weeks nursing a hamstring injury and missed three games. Upon recovering from his injury, Mike Tice, the team’s offensive line coach, decided to move Williams to the left guard position. We can all official label him as a bust, who is with me?
