The Pro Bowl kicks off Sunday and it facilities teams crafted by Hall of Fame far-reaching receivers Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice.
In a many declined Pro Bowl ever, a sum of 133 players were comparison for a diversion that will have usually 86 players in action. On Team Rice, all 3 quarterbacks are replacements for players that forsaken out, as usually Team Irvin’s Russell Wilson indeed done it when a teams were initial announced.
After it was played in Glendale, Ariz. in 2015, a Pro Bowl is behind in Hawaii in 2016 and set to atmosphere during 7 p.m. ET on ESPN 2. Below we take a demeanour during a register of Team Rice.
While Michael Irvin followed dual descent picks with 3 true defensive picks, while Jerry Rice addressed invulnerability with usually one of his initial 5 picks. Instead, he combined dual quarterbacks and dual far-reaching receivers in a initial 5 picks, adding them to a register that already featured Odell Beckham Jr. as captain.
In a diversion where invulnerability isn’t taken really seriously, a preference to aim passers and receivers early is substantially a sound one for Rice, who also snagged a initial using behind off a house by holding Adrian Peterson with his seventh selection.
Eli Manning, 35, was Rice’s initial selection, and he is a usually quarterback in a diversion who is comparison than 27, so his maestro care competence be generally useful Sunday.
QB: Eli Manning (1st pick), Tyrod Taylor, Derek Carr
RB: Adrian Peterson, Doug Martin, Chris Ivory
WR: T.Y. Hilton, Amari Cooper, Odell Beckham Jr. (captain), Jarvis Landry
TE: Travis Kelce, Gary Barnidge
FB: John Kuhn
OT: Joe Thomas, Joe Staley, Kyle Long
G: Josh Sitton, Logan Mankins, Richie Incognito
C: Eric Wood, Nick Mangold
Team Rice has an engaging mix of veterans participating in a Pro Bowl for presumably a final time and immature players who have prolonged careers forward of them. With his second pick, Rice picked second-year pass rusher Khalil Mack, though in a diversion where defensive backs mostly make a difference, he’ll have immature players like Marcus Peters and Jason Verrett churned in with veterans like Brent Grimes and Charles Woodson.
DL: Khalil Mack, Cameron Jordan, Everson Griffen, Gerald McCoy, Aaron Donald (captain), Fletcher Cox
LB: Julius Peppers, Tamba Hali, Elvis Dumervil, Bobby Wagner, Clay Matthews
DB: Jason Verrett, Marcus Peters, Brent Grimes, Vontae Davis, Charles Woodson, Eric Berry, Mike Adams
The special teams weren’t indeed comparison during a Pro Bowl Draft by Rice and were pre-determined Tuesday, one day before Irvin and Rice picked teams. While kickers and punters typically don’t make most impact on Pro Bowls (unless they’re removing dejected by Sean Taylor), a further of Tyler Lockett could be a large one for Team Rice. The rookie is as dangerous as any actor with a round in his hands and will expected get descent touches as kickoff earnings aren’t authorised by Pro Bowl rules.
Coach: Andy Reid
