Three Packers who deserve first Pro Bowl selection this season
There are too many players who could earn Pro Bowl selections this year to make the list, so it’s only fair to include an honorable mentions section.
Rookie Elgton Jenkins is playing some outstanding football this season. Even if he misses out on the Pro Bowl this year, the Packers may have found a multi-year Pro Bowler at guard. According to ESPN’s pass block win rate percentage, Jenkins ranks second in the NFL among guards at 97 percent. It’s his first season. Incredible.
Somewhat surprisingly, Corey Linsley is yet to make a Pro Bowl, although he has been an alternate. Linsley ranks first in the NFL among centers in ESPN’s pass block win percentage.
Kevin King leads the Packers with three interceptions this season and he’s tied for fourth in the NFL in passes defended. King is having a great season.
Adrian Amos has been consistent all season long at the safety position, and who said he can’t make big plays? He has one interception and could’ve easily had a couple more this season. He also tipped the ball in the air in the end zone last week, leading to an interception.
All four players mentioned here are all having Pro Bowl-level seasons and deserve to make it this year.
