The 2016 Pro Bowl draft is set to take place tonight on Jan. 27. If you actually want to watch it for some reason, tune in to ESPN2 at 7:30 p.m. ET. Team Irvin (led by Michael Irvin) and Team Rice (led by Jerry Rice) are set to pick the two teams that will face off in the Pro Bowl game on Sunday, Jan. 31.

For the third year in a row, the teams aren't based on conferences like they used to be. Any player is eligible to be drafted by either team. The Hall of Fame captains will alternate picks in selecting their roster.

There are a total of three Philadelphia Eagles players in the Pro Bowl Draft: defensive end Fletcher Cox, punt returner Darren Sproles, and safety Malcolm Jenkins. Cox and Sproles were named to the Pro Bowl outright. Jenkins made the team as an alternate. Jason Peters was named to the Pro Bowl but won't be playing due to injury reasons. The veteran left tackle usually opts out anyway.

Speaking of opting out, this year's Pro Bowl had a record number of players decline to play. A total of 33 original Pro Bowl selections won't appear in the game. 14 are in the Super Bowl while the remaining 22 are missing it due to personal reasons and/or injury.

After tonight's draft is over, BGN will have a post on the full Pro Bowl rosters. Please try to contain your excitement.

The actual Pro Bowl game will take place on Jan. 31 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii and air on ESPN starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.
