The Pro Bowl draft 2016 selection is on, and Russell Wilson of Seattle Seahawks was picked by the draft. The Pro Bowl legendary captain Michael Irvin made in the pick against the Hall Famer Jerry Rice. The captains of Team Rice will be served by Beckham and Aaron Donald respectively. Devonta Freeman and Geno Atkins will be the captains for Team Irvin. It may be noted that Manning and Beckham made 13 touchdowns and were pinning their hopes on repeating the feat. Manning said, “We’ve got a few plays that we’ve run over the years that we might have to throw into the offense, and hopefully, we can get together on a couple of big plays.”

Meanwhile, Julio Jones, Falcons wide receiver was the third choice for Team Irvin and Khalil Mack, defensive Oakland Raiders was the fourth pick for Team Rice. Three more picks for Irvin came in the form of Richard Sherman, Ezekiel Ansah, Detroit Lions and Michael Bennett of Seahawks defensive. Also, A J Green of Bengals and DeAndre Hopkins of Houston Texans were also rounded in the sixth and seventh. Team Rice opted for Jarvis Landry of Miami Dolphins, Derek Carr and Amari Cooper, wide receiver. The other two selections came from Kansas City Chiefs, Marcus Peters and Adrian Peterson of Minnesota Vikings. Thirty-four linemen and special team players were pre-drafted on Tuesday, and forty-eight players were drafted on Wednesday.
