Pro Bowl 2015 draft: Time, TV schedule, live stream and rules

The rules of the Pro Bowl draft are a little different this year. Here's how it works, and how you can watch on TV and online.

The 2015 NFL Pro Bowl is just around the corner, which means it's time for the Pro Bowl draft. The rules are the same as last season. Two captains will select their teams in a draft format prior to the game being played on Jan. 25. The teams began to take shape on Tuesday with initial picks, but the majority of the draft will be held on Wednesday, beginning at 8 p.m. ET.

It will be interesting to see if a quarterback is once again the top pick, and if that quarterback is once again Andrew Luck. There will be four player captains assisting with the drafting: Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden and Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray.

Those four player captains will assist Cris Carter and Michael Irvin, who are the captains on the two sides. The player captains will be assisting them in the draft, though Carter and Irvin will have final say on the rosters. John Randle will be Carter's defensive co-captain, while Darren Woodson will be the defensive co-captain for Irvin.

Watt and Brown will be paired with one team, while Haden and Murray will be paired with another. Each roster must have 21 players on offfense, 18 players on defense and five special teamers by the end of the draft. The draft will begin at 8 p.m. ET on the NFL Network. You'll also be able to catch it online at NFLNetwork.com. Here are the details:
