Terrell Suggs found himself in an unexpected situation Wednesday during the inaugural Pro Bowl draft.
He was stuck waiting.
The six-time Pro Bowler didn't get picked until the 19th round, when team captain Deion Sanders selected him to his roster. Suggs was a little frustrated with his late selection, but he said it was all part of the plan.
"We were playing strategy," Suggs said. "[Deion] was like, 'Sizzle we got you, but we're going to go late. So we're the wild card."
Soon after Sanders took Suggs, he then picked kicker Justin Tucker in the 21st round, meaning that Tucker, Suggs and right guard Marshal Yanda will all suit up for the former Raven.
"I can say personally this is an honor to be around such a great group of guys, and hopefully this is the first of many, but this is a tough league to play in," Tucker said after getting picked. "And just to have this honor at this time is amazing in and of itself."
This is the first year that the NFL has held a draft to pick the Pro Bowl rosters, rather than having an AFC vs. NFC matchup.
The format created a bit of drama around the game, and also stirred up a little trash talk between the Pro Bowlers.
"I'm a little disappointed that I wasn't the first pick, because I'm great," Suggs said during the NFL Network broadcast. "I was a little disappointed that I wasn't the first defensive player, because I'm great.
"You can go ahead and tell them – Defensive Player of the Year, Super Bowl champion, six-time Pro Bowler – but hey, all is well."
To pass the time in the green room while he waited to get picked, Suggs spent the evening tweeting and taking selfies with some of the other Pro Bowlers and NFL Network personalities.
Now that the teams are set, they will enjoy the Hawaii weather and also have a few days of practice before the all-star game takes place on Sunday.
Here are the full rosters for each team:
Cam Newton, Panthers, QB
John Abraham, Cardinals, OLB
