Seven Patriots will be starting, and eight will be going to the Pro Bowl this year. Maybe that's premature. Anywhere from 20 to 40% of the players selected don't show due to injury or apathy. Hopefully the Patriots will be coming off a massive celebration when its Pro Bowl time.

There is one Patriot who you'd expect to see, but who is not on the roster.

Here is the full roster for the AFC:

QB1: Tom Brady - New England
QB2: Peyton Manning - Indianapolis
QB3: Ben Roethlisberger - Pittsburgh

RB1: Ladanian "Classy" Tomlinson - San Diego
RB2: Willie Parker - Pittsburgh
RB3: Joseph Addai - Indianapolis

FB1: Lorenzo Neal - San Diego

WR1 Randy Moss - New England
WR2: Reggie Wayne - Indianapolis
WR3: Braylon Edwards - Cleveland
WR4: T.J. Houshmandzadeh - Cincinnati

TE1: Antonio Gates - San Diego
TE2: Tony Gonzalez - Kansas City

OT1: Matt Light - New England
OT2: Jason Peters - Buffalo
OT3: Jonathan Ogden - Baltimore

OG1: Logan Mankins - New England
OG2: Alen Faneca - Pittsburgh
OG3: Kris Dielman - San Diego

C1: Jeff Saturday - Indianapolis
C2: Dan Koppen - New England

P: Shane Lechler - Oakland

K: Rob Bironas - Tennessee

KR: Josh Cribbs - Cleveland

ST: Kassim Osgood - San Diego

DE1: Jared Allen - Kansas City
DE2: Kyle Vanden Bosch - Tennessee
DE3: Jason Taylor - Miami

DT1: Albert Haynseworth - Tennessee
DT2: Vince Wilfork - New England
DT3: Jamal Williams - San Diego

OLB1: Mike Vrabel - New England
OLB2: James Harrisson - Pittsburgh
OLB3: Shawn "Spazz" Merriman - San Diego

ILB1: Demeco Ryans - Houston
ILB2: Ray Lewis - Baltimore

CB1: Asante Samuel - New England
CB2: Champ Bailey - Denver
CB3: Antonio Cromartie - San Diego

FS: Ed Reed - Baltimore

SS1: Bob Sanders - Indianapolis
SS2: Troy Polamalu - Pittsburgh

Notice the lack of Wes Welker, and his 96 receptions, and 1,004 receiving yards. Oh well, he'll probably be the first alternate at WR once somebody backs out.
