The playoff picture may not be crystal clear at the moment, but the stars of this season couldn't be more apparent. 


After weeks of play, we finally know who the best of the best are. 


The NFL has officially released this year's Pro Bowl roster. 

​​As always, there will be snubs, but it's hard to argue with the talent that made the cut. 


The biggest takeaway from this year's roster is the absolute takeover by the Steelers. Pittsburgh had a league-high eight invitees including the Killer B's of Antonio Brown, Big Ben, LeVeon Bell and Chris Boswell, as well as injured linebacker Ryan Shazier, Alejandro Villanueva, Mike Pouncey, and David DeCastro. 

Four rookies made the contest in their first year, as Budda Baker, Kareem Hunt, Alvin Kamara, and Marshon Latimore will all represent their conferences. 


It's a high honor for many especially those who are making their first appearance, but every player on this list would rather miss the Pro Bowl and participate in the game the following weekend. 


We won't know for a while who will get that wish, but we do know those who are being honored as the best in the league this season.
