The Green Bay Packers’ lone Pro Bowl player, running back Eddie Lacy, will be selected sometime tonight on Day 2 of the Pro Bowl draft.

The Pro Bowl has abandoned the NFC-AFC format this year and instead is having Pro Football Hall of Famers Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice choose the teams in two days of drafting. They started by selecting their captains and then drafting players from six positions: guards, centers, fullbacks, interior defensive linemen, punters and special teamers.

Rice won the coin flip on Tuesday and thus had first shot at captains. The two leading vote getters on offense (Drew Brees and Jamaal Charles) were paired with the two leading vote getters on defense (J.J. Watt and Robert Quinn). Rice chose the Brees-Watt pairing, so Sanders was assigned the Charles and Quinn pairing.

From there, Rice and Sanders drafted by position group. Here’s the link to the players each side drafted: http://tinyurl.com/lqd4k9f

They’ll pick the rest of the position groups, including Lacy and the running backs, tonight beginning at 7 p.m. on the NFL Network.
