In case you missed the first day of the Pro Bowl draft, Ravens guard Marshal Yanda was the second player at his position picked for the game.

After Jerry Rice selected Saints guard Jahri Evans as the first guard selected, Deion Sanders took Yanda, indicating what his peers think of him even after a sub-par season as far as the Ravens' offensive line is concerned.

Ironically, Yanda was taken one spot ahead of former Ravens guard Ben Grubbs, now with New Orleans, who left the team via free agency after the 2011 season. After Rice took Grubbs, Sanders selected Patriots guard Logan Mankins. Rice then drafted Eagles guard Evan Mathis, and Bears guard Kyle Long was then assigned to Team Sanders.

On Tuesday, defensive tackles, offensive guards, centers, fullbacks and special teamers, punters and long snappers were selected. On Wednesday, the remainder of the positions will be selected. Kicker Justin Tucker and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs will be available for Rice and Sanders to draft.

Before Tuesday's portion of the draft began, Rice won a coin toss and chose the captain duo of Drew Brees and Robert Quinn. Sanders' captains are Jamaal Charles and J.J. Watt.
