  • Andrew Luck is the first overall pick of the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl draft.
  • The 2015 Pro Bowl will be played at the University of Phoenix Stadium on Jan. 25

Team Carter selected Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck first overall in the 2015 Pro Bowl draft on Jan. 21.

Andrew Luck is the first overall pick in the 2015 Pro Bowl draft.

Team Carter made Luck the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. Luck's placing remains the same after two consecutive years. He also went first overall when the Indianapolis Colts drafted him out of Stanford in 2012, per's Dan Hanzus.

Luck told NFL Media's Chris Rose that it's "neat" to go first overall, per Hanzus. Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter joked,"We're going to take a little air out the football for him, though." Carter was referring to the "DeflateGate" scandal where the New England Patriots allegedly deflated game balls used in last weekend's AFC Championship Game against the Colts.

Another quarterback, the Dallas Cowboys' Tony Romo, was the second overall pick. He goes to Team Irvin. According to Hanzus, Romo earlier joked that Hall of Fame Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin won't be allowed to board the plane bound for Dallas if he passes up on the Cowboys quarterback.

Romo told Hanzus it's "an honor" to play in the Pro Bowl. He quipped,"This is a special event, just for anybody who gets to play in the Pro Bowl. It's just an honor to really play in the game. I don't care if you're first or last or any of that stuff, (I'm) just lucky to be a part of it."

Hanzus lists the first 10 pick of the 2015 Pro Bowl:

  1. Andrew Luck, quarterback, Indianapolis Colts
  2. Tony Romo, quarterback, Dallas Cowboys
  3. A.J. Green, wide receiver, Cincinnati Bengals
  4. Odell Beckham, Jr., wide receiver, New York Giants
  5. Jamaal Charles, running back, Kansas City Chiefs
  6. Tyron Smith, tackle, Dalas Cowboys
  7. Patrick Peterson, cornerback, Arizona Cardinals
  8. Luke Kuechly, linebacker, Carolina Panthers
  9. Mario Williams, defensive end, Buffalo Bills
