The Pro Bowl draft is taking place tonight in Hawaii. Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin are putting together their Pro Bowl teams fantasy football style. After both Rice and Irvin got their quarterbacks and Irvin got his wide receiver in Julio Jones, Rice went defense with the fourth overall pick, taking Raiders elite pass rusher, Khalil Mack.

Mack made history this year when he was selected All Pro at both linebacker and defensive end. He Charles Woodson and Marcel Reece were the Raiders three original selections for the Pro Bowl. Reece was suspended for violating the league's PED policy while Mack and Woodson were joined by Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, and Latavius Murray who were originally alternates.

Here is how the top five stacked up in the Pro Bowl draft:

1. Irvin: Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks
2. Rice: Eli Manning, QB, Giants
3. Irvin: Julio Jones, WR, Falcons
4. Rice: Khalil Mack, DE/OLB, Raiders
5. Irvin: Richard Sherman, CB, Seahawks
