Saints QB Brees and Rams DE Robert Quinn to anchor Rice's Pro Bowl squad

In a new twist for the NFL Pro Bowl game, geared towards trying to garner more fan interest, Jerry Rice selected New Orleans Saints quarterback and St. Louis Rams defensive end Robert Quinn @RQuinn94 with his first two selections in the Pro Bowl Draft. His adversary, Deion Sanders, selected Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamal Charles and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt @JJWatt.

The draft will be held over the next two days, with Rice and Sanders picking their first 11 players Tuesday, then the remainder during a live draft to be aired on the NFL Network.

Fantasy Analysis:

No real fantasy analysis here... just think it's extremely cool that we could finally get to see the likes of Drew Brees @drewbrees throw to the likes of A.J. Green or Josh Gordon @JOSH_GORDONXII. Or better yet, we could get to see Robert Mathis get a chance to tackle his non-red-jersey-wearing teammate Andrew Luck. The Pro Bowl is historically a fun game, with little defense. It is still the best players in the game all on the field at the same time, and with much of the continental U.S.

For the record... I'm predicting WR Josh Gordon to catch for over 300 yards in the game!
