2012 Pro Bowl rosters and the NFL Draft

The Pro Bowl rosters were announced tonight, which always make me think of where each player was drafted. The full breakdown is after the jump, but here's what it looks like: 44 first-round picks, 10 second-round picks, seven third-round picks, five fourth-round picks, three sixth-round picks, two seventh-round picks and eight undrafted players.

Some other fun tidbits:

- All but two AFC picks on defense — defensive end Elvis Dumervil and safety Eric Weddle – are first-round picks.

- After the first and second rounds, there are more undrafted Pro Bowl players than any other round.

- Of the six running backs selected for the Pro Bowl, none were first-round picks.

- All four inside linebackers who made the Pro Bowl were first-round picks.

- Five of the six cornerbacks chosen were first-round picks. The sixth, Charles Tillman of Chicago, was a second-round pick.
