Fair use there Mr Earl. this is legal:

Anyone wondering what all the fuss about the NFL draft is only has to take a look at players named to this year's Pro Bowl teams. Granted, the Pro Bowl voting isn't 100% science with players reputations sometimes counting as much, if not more, that actual on-field production; that is especially true this year with very unscientific fan polls - where anyone can vote early and vote often - counting for a third of the final totals. Still, the Pro Bowl is a reasonably accurate barometer of who the best players in the league are at this time. And what that barometer tells us is that just about all the top players in the league were indeed drafted and the majority came to their teams as premium picks.
