You can safely argue that the Pro Bowl is a farce, at this point.
The 2016 Pro Bowl is the most declined Pro Bowl game in NFL history. Original invites: 86. That number grew to 135, per Elias.— JennaLaineBucs (@JennaLaineBucs) January 26, 2016
When you have that many people either declining or dropping out, you're suddenly getting players into the game who almost certainly do not belong there. Hell, that's the case in a regular year. But for all that, you can still have a little fun watching the game, and you might have a little fun tonight watching PRO BOWL CAPTAIN Devonta Freeman participating in a draft for his team, which could include the Falcons' other three representatives (Julio Jones, Patrick DiMarco, and Desmond Trufant) in this weekend's game.
Here's what you need to know if you watch the draft tonight, which you probably won't be doing.
2016 Pro Bowl Draft
7:30 p.m. EST. TONIGHT!
Wheeler Army Airfield in Hawaii
What is it?
The NFL shows off who team captains Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin drafted, and then player captains for each team will draft the remaining players. This show is somehow two hours long.
What's the channel?
ESPN2. Wait, you're seriously going to watch this?
Haha, okay, buddy.
