MVP frontrunner Lamar Jackson remains in the lead of not only all quarterbacks in Pro Bowl votes, but of all players. Baltimore has several players leading their position in votes for the AFC, including FB Patrick Ricard, T Orlando Brown Jr., G Marshal Yanda, K Justin Tucker, and CB Marcus Peters
Notable players missing include LT Ronnie Stanley, TE Mark Andrews, RB Mark Ingram, CB Marlon Humphrey, OLB Matthew Judon, DT’s Brandon Williams and Michael Pierce, FS Earl Thomas III and P Sam Koch.
Stanley has been the best pass-blocking tackle in the NFL this season according to Pro Football Focus and has yet to give up a sack. Humphrey has solidified his spot among the NFL’s elite corners, often shadowing the opposing team’s top wide receiver and even playing from the slot this season. Andrews leads all tight ends in touchdowns and is third in receiving yards by AFC tight ends. Judon currently has a career-high 8.5 sacks while being fourth in quarterback hits with 28.
While many fans find the Pro Bowl pointless or would rather see their favorite players still playing in Miami this February, being elected to the Pro Bowl is still an honor to the players, especially those who have yet to go.
