This year's Pro Bowl has a player draft headed by the alumni captains -- Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders. The draft happens over two days.
On Tuesday, captains were chosen and a few of the positions were drafted -- interior linemen on offense and defense, special teamers, punters and fullbacks.
This means that Arizona Cardinals special teams player Justin Bethel was drafted. He landed on Team Rice. His reaction?
