New skills competition events for 2022 NFL Pro Bowl

Best Catch

Two receivers from each conference will compete trying to have the most creative, best catch. Similar to the NBA Dunk Contest, receivers can use props, other players, really anything they can to try to earn the most points from the celebrity judges.

Fastest man

Two skill players from each team will run a 40-yard dash to see who’s the fastest.
