(June 29, 2004) -- Did you know there were 40 first-time Pro Bowl players selected to last season's big game on the little island? Never before have so many newcomers, be it selected by the fans or added due to injuries, been a part of the NFL's all-star game.
That says a lot about the young talent in the NFL today. Every year we're treated to a bumper crop of rookies. Some of them come in right away and make an impact, others take a few years to develop before they become great.
