Chicago Bears’ starting left guard Josh Sitton is currently the only Chicago player leading in Pro Bowl fan voting at his position.

This year the NFL’s Pro Bowl goes back to the more traditional AFC vs NFC format, instead of that weird school yard draft format of the last few seasons.

The only other positional leader among the NFC North teams is Minnesota special teamer Cordarrelle Patterson.

Dallas rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott leads the overall fan voting so far, with his rookie teammate, quarterback Dak Prescott, checking in at number two.

Ex-Bears make up the leaders at the tight end spot, with New England’s Martellus Bennett leading fan voting for the AFC and Carolina’s Greg Olsen leading for the NFC.

The Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 29, 2017 from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

Here’s how the NFL allows fans to vote;

Fan voting for the 2017 Pro Bowl will continue online and on web-enabled mobile phones at www.NFL.com/probowlvote until Tuesday, December 13. Fans may also vote for who they want to see on the 2017 Pro Bowl roster via social media by using #ProBowlVote and the player’s first and last name on Twitter and Instagram. On Facebook, fans may comment on any official Pro Bowl Vote post by the NFL or a club.

With the Pro Bowl participants determined by a consensus votes of from the fans, the current players and coaches, I wonder if any Bears will make the team this year.

I think Sitton has a good shot at it if he has a strong finish to the season, and I think running back Jordan Howard has been building a solid Pro Bowl resume so far, but other than that, I’m not sure any Bears should make the team.

What do you guys think?
