Drew Brees and Jerry Rice's team drafted Jimmy Graham and Cameron Jordan Wednesday night

New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees drafted two familiar names for Jerry Rice's team on the second day of the Pro Bowl draft as Team Rice selected TE Jimmy Graham and DE Cameron Jordan Wednesday night.

Brees, Graham and Jordan will be joined by the two other Saints Pro Bowlers guards Ben Grubbs and Jahri Evans on Team Rice.

"My guy @DrewBrees showing the love with the 1st overall. I won't disappoint!" Graham tweeted after the draft.

For the first time, the Pro Bowl is "unconferenced," with Pro Football Hall of Famers Deion Sanders and Rice serving as team captains. Brees, Kanasas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles, St. Louis Rams DE Robert Quinn and Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt will serve as honorary captains. Brees and Quinn will be part of Team Rice and Charles and Watt will be members of Team Sanders.

Centers, guards, interior defensive linemen, fullbacks and specialists were selected Tuesday night and quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, tackles, defensive ends, linebackers and defensive backs were picked Wednesday night.

The Pro Bowl will be played Sunday, January 26 and will be televised live on NBC at 7:00 PM ET from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. For the first time, players were selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players.
