Chicago Bears: 4 Late-Round Quarterback Prospects

If the 2011 season taught Chicago Bears fans anything, it was that an effective backup quarterback is just as important to the team as the starting quarterback.  After the injury to Jay Cutler against the San Diego Chargers in November, the Bears relied on their "home grown" talent, fourth-year man Caleb Hanie. 

Hanie failed miserably, throwing just three touchdowns to nine interceptions in just four starts.

Having drafted Nathan Enderle in the fifth round of last year's draft, the Bears may seem content to not add another rookie to the rotation.  But given the fact that Enderle was hand picked by former offensive coordinator Mike Martz, there is a real chance that a developmental quarterback could be chosen in the later rounds. 

The Bears will undoubtedly add a veteran No. 2 quarterback such as Josh McCown, Kyle Orton or even David Garrard, but a young rookie who they can be molded to be the eventual No. 2 behind Cutler could be found in the later rounds.

Here is a list of four late-round quarterback prospects for the Chicago Bears.
