Odell Beckham Jr. will play on a Cowboys-heavy Pro Bowl team

1/22/2015

The New York Giants' lone Pro Bowl representative, rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., will play Sunday night on a team full of Dallas Cowboys.

Beckham was the No. 4 overall selection in Wednesday night's Pro Bowl draft -- the second pick of the team selected by former Cowboys wideout Michael Irvin. Irvin took Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo with his first pick after designating Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray one of his captains a day earlier. Later, he picked Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, tackle Tyron Smith, center Travis Frederick and rookie guard Zack Martin.

Team Irvin will be coached by Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, who'll be familiar with his roster. The only Cowboy selected by Team Cris Carter was long-snapper L.P. Ladouceur.

Beckham is (obviously) playing in his first Pro Bowl after a dazzling rookie season in which he missed the first four games due to a hamstring injury but still managed to catch 91 passes for 1,305 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Pro Bowl is at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday in Glendale, Arizona, and will be broadcast on ESPN.
