Seattle, Arizona and New England each had seven players selected, and Cincinnati had five players picked.
Raiders safety Charles Woodson, who announced on Monday that he will retire after the season, was selected for the ninth time.
Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin will serve as alumni team captains for their Pro Bowl teams. The draft will be on Jan. 27.
The Pro Bowl will be held on Jan. 31 in Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
