5 Jaguars with a shot at earning Pro Bowl nod in 2022
Voting for the 2023 NFL Pro Bowl Games has already started. While the Jacksonville Jaguars hold a 3-7 record following their 27-17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, some of their individual performances have stood out.
It’s hard to envision Trevor Lawrence getting a Pro Bowl nod knowing how well fellow quarterbacks Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson, and Patrick Mahomes — all of whom play in the AFC — have fared this season. Having said that, there are other Jaguars that might have a good shot at earning a selection in 2022.
With that in mind, here are five Jaguars who have a shot at making the Pro Bowl this season.
No. 5 Jaguars player who can make the Pro Bowl: Jawaan Taylor, RT
Jawaan Taylor has been a mainstay of the Jaguars’ offensive line since 2019, making 59 consecutive starts at right tackle. This is more impressive when you consider that he had to fend off sophomore Walker Little in training camp to keep his job.
Looking back, it’s easy to see the coaching staff went with Taylor. The former Florida Gator hadn’t been particularly consistent in previous seasons but he’s turned the corner and is having a career year.
Taylor has allowed just four sacks and nine total pressures this season and is set to post career-best in both statistics. Moreover, he’s only been flagged four times. His 57.0 Pro Football Focus grade ranks 70th in the league but most of the best offensive tackles in the league reside in the NFC, so there’s a chance Taylor could get the nod along with Laremy Tunsil (Houston Texans) and Terron Armstead (Miami Dolphins).
