Former NFL stars Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice were having some fun in the sun on Tuesday and Wednesday as the two Hall of Famers were captains in the first ever NFL Pro Bowl Draft. 

So with the Bears sending five players to Hawaii for the game, where did they end up in the fantasy draft?

Rice showed his affection towards the Bears' wide receivers as he swooped up both Alshon Jeffery (12th overall) and Brandon Marshall (32nd overall), who would later engage in some trash-talking with Sanders. Running back Matt Forte would also join Team Rice, giving the former 49ers wide receiver all of Marc Trestman's best weapons.

"Primetime" would snatch up cornerback Tim Jennings on the second day and rookie guard Kyle Long on the first day. Luckily for Long, Sanders also picked Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh so the two won't have to battle in the trenches during the game. 

Long tweeted out some friendly trash talk to Jeffery:


Other NFC North players on Sanders' team include Minnesota Vikings wide receiver/kick returner Cordarelle Patterson and Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy. 

The Mr. "Not-So" Irrelevant Award went to Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith while Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was taken first overall.
