Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders, acting as alumni captains, will make their remaining selections in the first-ever Pro Bowl draft Wednesday at 8 p.m., deviating from the standard AFC and NFC teams.

Rice and Sanders have already selected three defensive linemen, three guards, two centers, one fullback, one punter and one special teamer each. Rice won the coin toss to determine who would pick captains and selected the Saints' Drew Brees and Robert Quinn. The Chiefs' Jamaal Charles and Texans' J.J. Watt were assigned to Team Sanders.

The alumni captains will select from 60 remaining players, 30 for each team, for the following positions on Wednesday night's show: four wide receivers, three tackles, two tight ends, three quarterbacks, three running backs, three outside linebackers, two inside/middle linebackers, four cournerbacks, three safeties, three defensive ends, one kicker and one returner.
