Pro Bowl 2017: Full AFC, NFC Rosters and Alternates

Taking a look at the full 2017 Pro Bowl rosters and the alternates for each conference.

On Tuesday, the rosters for the 2017 Pro Bowl were revealed for both the NFC and AFC. While there are far more selections (and often different selections) for the All-Pro teams later on, a look at the Pro Bowl rosters often gives a general sense of the league. You see which teams have shined and which players have become popular for the fan-vote.

For instance, the Oakland Raiders led all teams with seven selections for January’s pseudo-All Star Game. Meanwhile, the Dallas Cowboys may have been slighted a bit in the NFC, only receiving five selections despite their fantastic success. In terms of curiosities and snubs, though, there are plenty.

After all, the Detroit Lions are—for now—still in control of the NFC North and have been quite good this season. Yet they have no starters in the Pro Bowl. Meanwhile, the Browns have Pro Bowler in Joe Thomas. Yeah, I’m not sure how that works out anyway.

We always see a lot of guys drop out, though, for health concerns, playing in the Super Bowl and other reasons. As such, the alternates for the Pro Bowl are also extremely relevant. With that in mind, we’ll also take a look at the known alternates as of Thursday.

Again, these are only the known alternates as announce by teams or various reports. There are certainly more and, more than likely, we’ll see a lot of them in Orlando. After all, the turnout for the Pro Bowl isn’t exactly close to 100 percent.

However, with the move to Orlando this year and with the addition of new events, this year could be a bit different. We’ll have to wait and see, though, as to how things turn out as we get close and as the playoffs take their toll. The 2017 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, Jan. 29 with kickoff at 8 p.m. ET from Camping World Stadium.
