Bears First Round Draft Pick Compilation


We’re just hours away from the NFL Draft 2011.  All the mock drafts and analysis are complete and now it’s up to the Bears to go out there and screw this thing up like only they can.

Thanks to The Score intern Zach Withers and Matt Spiegel, they’ve provided a list of 37 various scribes, “experts” and other mock draft idiots who have predicted who the Bears will select with the 29th pick in the 2011 draft.  When I saw the list, I thought, “Damn, I need an intern.”  Sort of like Kramer had when he decided to open Kramerica Industries up for business.   Check out the list of picks after the jump.

Here’s why Spiegel and The Score need me; because I’m breaking it down for you.  Check out my fun pie charts to give you a quick overview.

Derek Sherrod dominates the mocks with 40% of the votes.  A handful of mocks have the Bears going for problem child Marvin Austin and a sprinkling of other guys.  If you want to see a breakdown by position, check this:

More than half of the mocks have the Bears filling their need at O-line in the first round while 1/3 figure the Bears will take a defensive tackle.  What do you think?

Be sure to join us right back here on Thursday and all weekend.  The FanSided mother ship will be descending on all the sites with a Live Chat that will be going on throughout the draft.  Sites from around the network will be participating, so you’ll be able to see what everyone else around the league thinks in real time.   You’ll be able to talk smack and join in the conversation or just lurk in a dark corner.  The Chat will be right at the top of our HOME PAGE all weekend long.
