As you well know, this year’s Pro Bowl in Hawaii is going to be a little different from what we are used to in years past as it has a new set of rules to help, hopefully, raise the excitement and popularity of the all-star game.

The game is going to be unconferenced, and the teams will be decided by a real live fantasy draft.

To help jazz things up, the top two players on offense and top two players on defense that received the most votes during pro bowl voting are now going to be assigned as captains of their respective teams to help decide the roster with  their team captains, Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders.

Those four players are QB Drew Brees, RB Jamaal Charles, DE J.J. Watt, and St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn.

Robert Quinn is the only Ram to make the Pro Bowl and the first since Chris Long and James Laurinaitis made it as alternates in 2011.

The players will meet on January 21st for a coin toss to decide which team will draft first and then the draft will be held January 21-22 and can be see on the NFL Network on Tuesday (8:00-9:00 PM ET) and Wednesday (8:00-11:00 PM ET).

The game will then be played in Hawaii on January 26 in Kapolei, Hawaii.
