The excitement of Fantasy Football has overtaken the league's annual All Star game. Or something like that.
The top vote-getters were named captains of each team, led by Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders. Rice got to pick his two captains, Drew Brees and Robert Quinn, giving Sanders Jamaal Charles and J.J. Watt.
Then each side got to begin selecting their team, starting with interior defensive linemen, moving to interior offensive linemen and finishing up with centers, special teams players, punters and fullbacks.
The second half of the draft, scheduled to air tonight on NFL Network, will consist of all remaining players.
Captains: quarterback Drew Brees, defensive end Robert Quinn
Special teamer: Justin Bethel, Arizona
Punter: Johnny Hekker, St. Louis
Fullback: Mike Tolbert, Carolina
Captains: running back Jamaal Charles, defensive end J.J. Watt
Special teamer: Matthew Slater, New England
Punter: Brandon Fields, Miami
Fullback: Marcel Reece, Oakland
The remaining picks will be announced Wednesday, beginning at 8 p.m. ET on NFL Network. The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET Sunday from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
