The NFL is trying, with gusto, to make the Pro Bowl fun and entertaining. Completely revamped with new rules, new wrinkles, new All-Star draft format, and new uniforms. It all starts with NFL Pro Bowl 2014.

Official 2014 NFL Pro Bowl uniforms – Nike NFL Elite 51 Pro 

New NFL Pro Bowl uniforms - NFL Pro Bowl 2014 2015 - NFL All-Star Game - New Nike NFL Pro Bowl uniforms

New NFL Pro Bowl uniforms – NFL Pro Bowl 2014 2015 – NFL All-Star Game – New Nike NFL Pro Bowl uniforms

Nike will replace the longstanding red, white and blue uniforms with bright orange and volt yellow.

For the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl, the NFL and Nike Football introduce the game’s lightest and most breathable NFL Nike uniform to date.

Designed for optimal ventilation, the Nike NFL Nike Elite 51 Pro Bowl Uniform features a combination of lightweight, breathable fabrics. Designed and engineered from the inside out, this uniform system is built for the speed and energy of the all-pro event, and the heat of the host city – Honolulu, Hawaii. Worn by some of the league’s best, the uniform features amplified design details like vibrant color accents and Pro Bowl achievement stars on the nameplates. Reflecting by the pace of the game, these concept uniforms are punctuated by accents of vibrant orange and volt.

The uniform design and the game itself share a common theme that highlights the new, faster format for the Pro Bowl. Rather than pitting the AFC vs. the NFC, the 2014 Pro Bowl will make fantasy football a reality, allowing players, coaches, and fans to vote for the two teams. Once selected, teams will compete in a “best in the NFL” match-up built around speed and competition.

The new threads — with clear ties to the Oregon look — also will include NFL Pro Bowl achievement stars on the nameplates, similar to what Adidas applied to the warm-up jackets worn by NBA All-Stars. NFL players will debut the uniforms at the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl on Jan. 26, in Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

As the official uniform supplier of the NFL, Nike provides all on-field, baselayer, sideline and practice wear for the league’s 32 teams.

NFL Pro Bowl 2014 – New NFL All-Star draft – New NFL Pro Bowl draft 2014 – 2014 NFL Pro Bowl Draft – Team Sanders – Team Rice

Pro Bowl Draft Front office

Alumni Captains: Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice. The alumni captain has final say in the draft.

Offensive Captains: Drew Brees and Jamaal Charles | Defensive Captains: J.J. Watt and Robert Quinn

Fantasy Winner: Two fans (One “Lenovo Fantasy Winner” and One “NFL.com Fantasy Winner”)

Captains

The top two offensive vote-getters and the top two defensive vote-getters will be appointed as captains. Captain groups will be:

Highest offensive vote-getter and second-highest defensive vote-getter: Drew Brees (Saints) andRobert Quinn (Rams).

Highest defensive vote-getter and second-highest offensive vote-getter: J.J. Watt (Texans) and Jamaal Charles (Chiefs).

Captains must be from teams that are nonconference championship-game participants (28 teams).

Captains will be determined by the Tuesday following the divisional playoff games (at the latest).

Coin toss

On Tuesday, Jan. 21, there will be a coin toss at the Pro Bowl press conference. The winner will choose between the captain group or first pick in the Tuesday and Wednesday drafts. If the winner of the coin flip chooses a captain group, the loser will be assigned the other captain group and have first pick in the Tuesday and Wednesday drafts. If the winner of the coin flip chooses first pick in the Tuesday and Wednesday drafts, the loser will pick a captain group.

Team rosters

Offense: Each Pro Bowl team must have 21 players on offense in the following positions:

  • Four wide receivers
  • Three tackles
  • Three guards
  • Two centers
  • Two tight ends
  • Three quarterbacks
  • Three running backs
  • One fullback
Defense: Each Pro Bowl team must have 18 players on defense in the following positions:
  • Three defensive ends
  • Three interior linemen
  • Three outside linebackers
  • Two inside/middle linebackers
  • Four cornerbacks
  • Three safeties

Special Teams: Each Pro Bowl team must have five players on special teams in the following positions:

  • One punter
  • One placekicker
  • One special teamer
  • One returner
  • One “need” player selected by coach (e.g., long snapper)
Draft eligible players

There are 88 players that participate in the Pro Bowl. Of those 88, 82 players are draft eligible. Four of the 88 players will be captains as described above. Two of the 88 players are appointed by coaches because they are “need” players (e.g., long snapper) and therefore not drafted. A maximum of 64 players will be drafted. A minimum of 18 players will be assigned (one per position).

Once a team fills its roster limit for a position, the other team is assigned the remaining players at that position. Assignments do not count as picks. For example, if Team Sanders has only picked two wide receivers when Team Rice picks its fourth wide receivers, the remaining two wide receivers will be assigned to Team Sanders and Team Sanders will have the next pick in the draft.

This draft will be taped Tuesday, Jan. 21, from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. and shown the same day on NFL Network. Picks will be a maximum of 30 seconds.

There will be 22 players — 11 per team — drafted or assigned in segments from the following position groups in this order:

1. Three interior linemen
2. Three guards
3. Two centers
4. One fullback, one punter, and one special teamer (e.g. coverage player)

Picks are in alternating order. There will be six players assigned. There will be 16 actual selections. After Tuesday, each team will have 14 players (28 total players) made up of 11 draft/assigned during Tuesday’s draft, one “need” player and two captains.

On Wednesday, players selected/assigned Tuesday will be announced and walk the red carpet at the outset of the show. All players will be given a Pro Bowl practice jersey. The remaining players will be drafted in a three-hour live show on NFL Network on Jan. 22. Two minutes per pick must be used.

Alternating order

60 players, 30 per team, will be drafted or assigned from the following position groups:

  • Four wide receivers
  • Three tackles
  • Two tight ends
  • Three quarterbacks
  • Three running backs
  • Three outside linebackers
  • Two inside/middle linebackers
  • Four cornerbacks
  • Three safeties
  • Three defensive ends
  • One placekicker
  • One returner
Notes

Four of the players above will be captains and already on a team prior to the Wednesday draft.

There will be a minimum of 12 players assigned. There will be a maximum of 48 players drafted.

Once each team has two quarterbacks on its roster, they may not take a third quarterback until the last round of the draft.

At the conclusion of the draft, the team that chooses second may make one trade. Players must be the same position (e.g., wide receiver for wide receiver). This must only involve players selected beyond the fifth round. The trade may not be for a quarterback. If the team that chose second decides to make a trade, the trade is mandatory.
