NFC Pro Bowl roster 2013: NFC West prominent in NFL all-star game

USA TODAY Sports

With plenty of NFC West representation, the NFC roster is fairly devoid of Cardinals players.

The Arizona Cardinals will be represented by Patrick Peterson in the 2013 Pro Bowl, and he'll be joined by plenty of talent from within the NFC West.

In total, there are 15 players represented from the division that was once the laughing stock of the NFL. It was only a few seasons ago that the Seattle Seahawks, with a losing record of 7-9, made the playoffs following the 2010 campaign.

The tide has turned this season, and the talent-laden division showcases some of the league's best talent. The San Francisco 49ers have nine players headed to Hawaii, nine of whom are on the defensive side of the ball, while the Seattle Seahawks have five. Despite the St. Louis Rams not having any players represented, the overwhelming presence speaks volumes to the level of play in the NFC West.

Peterson is in good company, with the Chicago Bears' cornerback tandem of Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings leading the group as starters, with Peterson listed as the backup.
