J.J. Watt selects Duane Brown for Pro Bowl roster

If J.J. Watt had to pick, he'd still want three-time Pro Bowler Duane Brown on his team.

Both Texans will be playing for alumni captain Cris Carter's team in Sunday's 2015 NFL Pro Bowl game. Watt picked up the Texans starting left tackle to guard the blind side of Andrew Luck, selected with the first overall pick.

This will be the second-consecutive year that the Pro Bowl teams are selected via draft, a process that "creates a lot of competition," according to Watt.

"When we are going through and picking guys, we're going to pick the guys that are going to go out there and play hard," Watt said. "We're going to pick the guys that want to win. That's what makes it so much fun."

Watt and Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, Team Carter's Pro Bowl captains, finalized their team roster on Wednesday. Other players on Team Carter include: Jamaal Charles (RB-Chiefs), A.J. Green (WR-Bengals), Patrick Peterson (CB-Cardinals), Aqib Talib (CB-Broncos) and former Texans Mario Williams (DE-Bills) and Connor Barwin (OLB-Eagles).

John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens will coach Team Carter. Michael Irvin's team, with captains DeMarco Murray and Joe Haden, consists of five Cowboys players, including Tony Romo, and will be led by Dallas head coach Jason Garrett.

The 2015 NFL Pro Bowl will be televised Sunday from the University of Phoenix Stadium on ESPN at 7 p.m. CT.
