This year's AFC squad features many talented players on both sides of the ball, but some will be more valuable than others when the game actually goes down.
It could be because of the position they play, or it could be because someone else should be there, but a few players will not bring much value to the AFC's side of things in Honolulu.
Let's take a look at which players.
Schaub has led the Texans to 12 wins this season, so it's not completely unreasonable that he was voted into the game, but he's not going to do much when the time comes.
Winning the game is a quarterback's main priority, but that doesn't help you in an All-Star game. People want to see big plays, and he's not going to make that happen.
When you look at Schaub's 22 touchdowns compared to the other Pro Bowl signal-callers, he looks like a joke. Houston's success is the main reason for his spot on the team, but that's not a good enough reason.
By the time Schaub gets in, no one will be watching. He's a talented, trustworthy quarterback, but he's not a guy who anyone wants to see in the Pro Bowl.
Berry is extremely talented, but he played for arguably the worst team in football. That shouldn't nix his chances at an individual honor, although you have to wonder how a Kansas City team with two wins earned five Pro Bowl bids.
He had 80 tackles and one interception this season, but you would like to see him do more in pass coverage. He's still improving his skill-set as a young player.
It's encouraging for the Chiefs, but he's not going to go a long way here. He's been excellent in run support this season, but the AFC's front seven will have no trouble covering for themselves.
In pass coverage, Champ Bailey and Johnathan Joseph can take care of themselves on an island as well.
Berry is only going to improve in the coming years, but he's not one to watch here.
It's not so much about Welker as it is about Demaryius Thomas getting snubbed.
Welker has 110 catches and five touchdowns this season. He's been just as valuable to the New England Patriots this season as he always has been, but he's just not the kind of guy you want to see in the Pro Bowl.
Thomas is. He has over 1,300 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. Peyton Manning has made him the Broncos' No. 1 target, and he's benefited from it with big results.
Welker will complement Reggie Wayne, A.J. Green and Andre Johnson well, but the Pro Bowl isn't about forming a cohesive offense. It's about scoring points in a way that pleases fans the most, and fans dig the long ball.
Even though Welker is talented, he adds very little value to the AFC's star-studded receiving corps.
