Fanview: Who gets drafted #29 poll continued…

Hello All, I am a Vikings fan... I'm not coming here to berate or demean any Bear's, team, players or fans.

I am simply here to try an experiment...

I have worked my way through the first 28 teams on SB*Nation, now I am to pick #29 The Chicago Bears. I am curious to see from a fan's point of view, how accurate we can be at predicting what our teams might do in the draft.

Here we are in the final month... I'm going to have to speed things up, so please Rec' this post, the more attention it gets, the more votes it will have, the more accurate it will be.



I will be giving Bear's fans time to hash out what you think your team will do / should do with the 29th pick of the draft.

Next, I will move on to the Jet's site and let them know what you, as the fans have decided. I will take your pick off the board, then let them hash it out for the #30 pick of the draft... then continue on in 2011 draft order:

I have made each Team - Player a link to the official results. If you would like to see exactly how the draft unfolded, just click on one of the teams / players below.
