Instead, players will be selected in a vote by fans, coaches and players, without regard to conference. Two leading vote getters will join two NFL.com fantasy football champions to draft players. Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will serve as alumni team captains, assisting in the draft process. The draft will air on NFL Network January 22. The 2014 Pro Bowl will take place Sunday, January 26 in Honolulu.
