They must have got this idea of drafting players from the NBA. Charles Barkley and Shaq have chosen the players for their teams in the Rookie-Sophomore game during All-Star weekend the past couple of years. Smeds is right, this is the beginning of the end of the Pro Bowl.
I remember making a post on here a few years ago saying they needed to make the Pro Bowl weekend more of an event, like the NBA and MLB does.
They should have the Pro Bowl every year in the same city the Super Bowl is in that year.
Have a celebrity game (likely flag football) with a mixture of retired players, current players, other athletes from other sports, and Hollywood celebrities.
Bring some NFL combine like events to Pro Bowl weekend. Like a strong man competition to see who is the strongest man in the NFL. A 40 yard dash event to see who is the fastest man in the NFL (letting the fans vote on who they want to see participate). People like Chris Johnson are always talking about how they are the fastest, they can prove it at Pro Bowl weekend.
The game itself will be what it is. None of the players want to get injured, especially not in an exhibition game. And by late January all the players are pretty banged up. So they're not going to risk their bodies as much in a exhibition game after a 16 (maybe 18) game season. So the Pro Bowl will never be as exciting as a real game when players give it their all.
