The NFL will be doing things differently this year when it comes to the Pro Bowl, as they have two legends selecting the teams from a “draft pool.” This means the AFC and NFC battle lines will no longer be drawn and teammates could end up going against each other.

With the NFL always capitalizing on the popularity of the sport, they have now found a way to build up the Pro Bowl by bringing in some extra advertisers.

According to reports, the three-hour Pro Bowl draft will be televised. Events will include a red carpet event for the selected players, which is the go-to time killer during shows that are far too long.

The draft is set to air after the day that the teams are already selected by Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders, so there is a good chance that we could get some roster leaks before the game actually takes place.

Once the draft is finalized and the rosters are set, the teams will be set to practice on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday as they prepare for Sunday’s game.
