Highlighting Packers’ 3 biggest Pro Bowl snubs
The Green Bay Packers picked seven NFL high players for the first Pro Bowl squad on Monday, so the team doesn't have much to complain about in the "Snub" division this year.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, receiver Davante Adams, left tackle David Bakhtiari, full-back Za’Darius Smith, Aaron Jones, cornerback Jaire Alexander and guard Elgton Jenkins were all worthy selections.
The Packers still had a handful of snubs.
Here are three players who weren't selected but are also worth Pro Bowl consideration:
C Corey Linsley: He has struggled with injuries and missed the last 2.5 games with a knee injury which likely hurt his cause. But when Linsley was on the field that season, he was the NFL's best center, both as a pass guard and in the running game. In fact, it's still the top rated center on Pro Football Focus. Jason Kelce and Frank Ragnow are having good seasons, but it's a shame Linsley wasn't recognized for his career year.
TE Robert Tonyan: He may only have 49 total catches, but it's hard to argue with Tonyan's 10 touchdown catches, the most tied under tight ends in the NFL (Travis Kelce). Aaron Rodgers has a passerby rating of 148.0 when aiming at him and he is ranked number 1 on the DVOA. Tonyan should have made it through Evan Engram easily.
S Adrian Amos: The Packers Veteran's Security has become a consistent and effective defender, especially in the past two months. It is now the second highest security level in the NFC at PFF. It's a shame the Pro Bowl only picks three collateral on the roster. Amos was to be one of the first deputies behind Budda Baker, Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs.
