Team Irvin snatches up all the Falcons in 2016 NFL Pro Bowl draft

BY foxsports • January 28, 2016

The Atlanta Falcons are well represented at the 2016 NFL Pro Bowl. With the likes of Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman, Patrick DiMarco and Desmond Trufant all in Hawaii.

With that said, all four players were obviously in the Team Irvin vs. Team Rice draft leading up to the game. Apparently, Michael Irvin and his team really liked the Falcons though. While Freeman was the captain for Team Irvin, all four players actually wound up on the same team.

As Conway explains on the team's official site, DiMarco was pre-selected to Team Irvin, but the Hall of Fame wide receiver picked both Jones and Trufant to be on his team.
