The Pro Bowl rosters are (finally) set after some unconstrained shuffling. There are 88 players pegged to play in a game, and any will be comparison to a group captained by Hall of Famers Jerry Rice or Michael Irvin.
The Pro Bowl breeze is holding place during a Army’s ancestral Wheeler Army Airfield in Hawaii on Wednesday night. We’ll be following it live from start to finish as Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and 3 other stream NFL stars assistance collect players for Team Rice and Team Irvin.
Follow along here:
• Let’s start with a captains. Beckham and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald are on Team Rice. Falcons using behind Devonta Freeman and Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins are on Team Irvin.
• Irvin’s initial collect is Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
• Rice’s initial collect is Eli Manning. Or some-more like Beckham’s initial collect is Manning. He knows where his bread is buttered after Eli’s threat earlier in a day.
• Irvin selects Falcons far-reaching receiver Julio Jones. Irvin remove him some far-reaching receivers.
• Rice selects Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack. Clearly he’s a rising star. Everyone seems to have taken notice.
• First cornerback off a house is Richard Sherman. He goes to Team Irvin, that is complicated on Seahawks with Wilson already on board.
• Beckham’s participation is being felt early in this draft. His closest crony and former LSU teammate Jarvis Landry is comparison by Rice. Beckham can flattering most go home happy now.
• The subsequent dual picks are defensive finish Ezekiel Ansah (Irvin) and quarterback Derek Carr (Rice). Yes, Carr is in a Pro Bowl. He threw 32 touchdown passes this season.
• We’re relocating now. Team Irvin took Seahawks defensive finish Michael Bennett and Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green, who Irvin is job “money.” Irvin is all about a Seahawks so far. Team Rice took Raiders far-reaching receiver Amari Cooper and Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters. Rice is all about a Raiders so far.
• Team Irvin takes Texans far-reaching receiver DeAndre Hopkins and Rams using behind Todd Gurley. Team Rice takes Vikings using behind Adrian Peterson and Chiefs defensive finish Tamba Hali. Honestly astounded Peterson lasted this prolonged but, hey, it’s a Pro Bowl draft. Anything goes.
• It contingency now be a Minnesota Vikings apportionment of a draft. Team Irvin takes linebacker Anthony Barr and Team Rice takes defensive finish Everson Griffen.
• In a subsequent turn Team Irvin goes for Falcons cornerback Desmond Trufant. Team Rice responds with Colts cornerback Vontae Davis. My dual cents: advantage, Team Rice.
• Some some-more picks …
Team Irvin — WR Allen Robinson (Jaguars), LB Lavonte David (Bucs)
Team Rice — WR T.Y. Hilton (Colts), RB Doug Martin (Bucs)
• They only interviewed Eli Manning and his sunglasses on a ESPN broadcast. Swag clearly off a charts.

• Finally, some parsimonious ends. Team Rice grabs Kansas City’s Travis Kelce. Team Irvin responds with Cincinnati’s Tyler Eifert. Ho-hum.
• The best story of a Pro Bowl comes off a house an hour into a breeze when Team Rice takes Chiefs reserve Eric Berry. The man kick cancer. Take that. Team Irvin follows with Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston. Irvin is a large fan.
• Team Rice takes a veteran, Julius Peppers, from a Packers. He can still get to a quarterback. Team Irvin goes with Bengals defensive finish Carlos Dunlap.
• Back to a breeze and some quarterbacks who don’t go in a diversion are comparison …
Team Rice — DE Cameron Jordan (Saints), QB Tyrod Taylor (Bills)
Team Irvin — QB Teddy Bridgewater (Vikings), TE Delani Walker (Titans)
• Team Rice takes Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes even yet he doesn’t merit to be in a game. Team Irvin responds with reserve Reshad Jones. This is apparently a Dolphins apportionment of a draft.
• The final half hour of a breeze starts with Ravens defensive finish Elvis Dumervil being comparison by Team Rice. Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee goes to Team Irvin. Of course. Irvin needs each Cowboy. He’s succeeding.
• Team Irvin follows with Bengals cornerback Adam Jones. Don’t call him Pacman. Team Rice selects Jets using back Chris Ivory. Rice loves a approach he runs.
BTW: What is going on with Charles Woodson? How is he still on a house in his final Pro Bowl and game?
• Team Irvin is now reserved Oakland’s Latavius Murray since he is a final using behind remaining.
• It’s all defensive backs remaining. Not certain what a captains have opposite DBs yet … Eagles reserve Malcolm Jenkins goes to Team Irvin. Chargers cornerback Jason Verrett is comparison by Team Rice.
• The final cornerback remaining is a Giants’ Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. He’s automatically reserved to Team Irvin, so he’s distant from a rest of his Giants teammates. Pretty certain Beckham has no idea. The captains haven’t been in a breeze room during a draft.
• Getting down to a nitty dirty now. Team Irvin takes Vikings reserve Harrison Smith. He’s a good, immature player. New Jersey local Mike Adams now lands on Team Rice.
• And a really final actor drafted is Raiders reserve Charles Woodson. He’s timid so this will be a final diversion of his career. They contend he was a final actor picked on purpose to give him his due.
