Four Green Bay Packers players who should’ve been selected to the Pro Bowl this season.

It’s important not to take the Pro Bowl too seriously. This season shows us exactly why. Today, we’ll take a look at the Green Bay Packers‘ Pro Bowl snubs for this season.

Aaron Rodgers and David Bakhtiari were both selected to the Pro Bowl, but it’s fair to say the Packers had many other candidates also deserving of being selected. It’s a long-overdue selection for Bakhtiari, who was a first-team All-Pro a year ago but didn’t make the Pro Bowl. Again, another reason why it’s important not to take the rosters too seriously.

Of course, there are only limited spots available on each roster, and both conferences have elite players at each position who will miss out, or only play in the Pro Bowl due to injuries. But the Packers, an 11-3 team with a number of standout performers this season on both sides of the ball, should’ve had more selections than just two.

This list won’t include every talented player who missed out. Davante Adams, for example, is one of the best wide receivers in football, but he missed four games due to injury and didn’t catch his first touchdown of the season until Week 12. So I can get why Adams didn’t make it, despite the fact most years he should.

But these four players had a strong case to be selected to the Pro Bowl this season.
