Pro Bowl Draft: New Orleans Saints Players Have Been Selected

Graham won't be dropping passes from Brees!

The Pro Bowl, which includes three New Orleans Saints players, is set to kick off on Sunday. The NFL‘s all-star game saw major changes last season — each team is selected by a former player, so there’s no more AFC versus NFC.

Team leaders this year are Hall of Fame wide receivers Chris Carter and Michael Irvin. Representing the Black and Gold are QB Drew Brees, TE Jimmy Graham and RB Mark Ingram.

The two initial selections were Graham and guard Jahri Evans, who will miss the game due to a minor surgery following the season’s end. Brees and Ingram were just recently added to the roster.

Selected at No. 12 overall by Team Irvin, Graham was the first Saint and first tight end chosen. Jimmy finished the year with 85 receptions for 889 yards and ten touchdowns.

Brees was picked at No. 17 overall by Team Carter as the third quarterback and second Saint taken. Stuggling with turnovers in 2014, Drew completed his ninth season in the Big Easy 456 of 659 for 4,952 yards, 33 touchdowns and 20 total turnovers. He looks to be the backup to Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck, who was selected first overall.

Finally, we have Mr. Ingram — he’ll be joining Jimmy Graham and Team Irvin after being selected at No. 40. Marky Mark battled a hand injury early in the season, forcing the breakout running back to miss three games. However, he still managed 964 yards and nine touchdowns on 226 carries. A full 16 games would have had him over 1,000 yards, something not seen in New Orleans since Deuce McAllister in 2006.

Glad Drew is not playing against Watt. Last year he was running for his life. That game wasn't joke.

Sad thing is the Pro Bowl draws a huge rating every year. Everyone complains but everyone apparently watches it.
