The Pro Bowl lineups are set and Team Irvin vs. Team Rice take center stage on Sunday.
Minus the Panthers and Broncos stars, this game will field some of the best in the NFL showing off one more time for the fans before they head into their off season routine.
Coach Michael Irvin started the draft off wasting no time grabbing his go to guy.
Irvin took Russell Wilson first overall making sure his team had a leader under center that can beat Team Rice with both his arm and feet. Irvin solidified his back with DeVonta Freeman and added Julio Jones out wide to have a solid offensive threat.
Irvin wanted to make sure his defense was completely set as with picks 4-6 he took all defensive players. Irvin used Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah and Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett.
After really putting together a solid defensive core, Irvin went right back on the attack by grabbing AJ Green.
Irvin has put together a fast and quick paced offense with Wilson, Freeman, Jones, Green, DeAndre Hopkins,Allen Robinson, and Tyler Eifert. Irvin will have the rookie Jameis Winston backing up Wilson along with Teddy Bridgewater.
Team Rice went for the team chemistry route with his early draft picks.
Rice went out and grabbed Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. with his first two picks. Manning and Beckham wouldn’t share what kind of trick plays they expect to run, but it can be assured they will have something up their sleeves.
To cap off the rest of the receiving corp, Rice grabbed rookie sensation Amari Cooper, Jarvis Landry, and TY Hilton to lead the charge.
The backfield is led by the best RB in the league in Adrian Peterson. Peterson was by far the main reasoning for the Vikings being a playoff team.
Defensively, Marcus Peters, Vontae Davis, and Eric Berry lead a very talented group.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Team Rice -3
On paper, Team Irvin may have the better team.
However, Team Rice has the chemistry with the Manning-Beckham connection, they’re certainly going to have some big plays down field.
As usual, this will be high scoring, but the Manning-Beckham connection will be entertaining and very productive.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Team Rice 48 – Team Irvin 38
Unlike the early game I don’t see either team dominating in this one. Should be close throughout.
