Jamaal Charles was the fifth overall selection in the 2015 Pro Bowl Draft by Team (Chris) Carter. That sounds about right. But, what about Justin Houston?
The NFL's sack leader went 15th overall, and was the fifth defensive player chosen. Von Miller, and his 14 sacks, went one pick before Houston, who had 22. It may have been made in jest, but it seemed the Chiefs' linebacker didn't take too kindly to the selection.
Miller had a great season, but Houston continues to be disrespected around the league. Although JJ Watt probably deserved Defensive Player of the Year, Houston was not even in the discussion. Which doesn't seem right.
What did seem right is that all four (including Tamba Hali and Dontari Poe) Chiefs ended up on Team Carter. That means this won't happen in this year's game.
In reality where you are chosen in the Pro Bowl doesn't matter, even Andrew Luck, who was taken first overall, responded with: "It's nice. I guess." But, former and current players have a hand in the draft, and it can seem like a slight to some, as we heard from Houston.Read more... Join the Conversation...
