HONOLULU (AP) — Former NFL stars Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will divide up the skill players for the Pro Bowl teams at a beachside draft broadcast live on television.

League officials announced Thursday that the three-hour Pro Bowl draft would be held Jan. 22 at an oceanfront estate in Oahu's resort area of Ko Olina.

Alumni team captains Rice and Sanders will pick the first 11 players each a day earlier among guards, centers, fullbacks, punters, special teams players and interior linemen. The rest of the 66 players will be taken the next day.

Rice and Sanders will have final say on their teams, but each be helped by a fan who is a fantasy champion on NFL.com. They'll also be helped by two active player captains each.
