5 Jaguars who deserved consideration for Pro Bowl honors
By now, you have probably learned that the Jacksonville Jaguars didn’t have a single player make the 2022 Pro Bowl. This wouldn’t have been news in any of the last two years but it’s kind of puzzling that the Jags were snubbed this year.
Sure, Jacksonville is far from a powerhouse but they have been playing week over the last six weeks. You would think that should help some of their players earn a Pro Bowl designation but apparently, it wasn’t enough.
Having said that, the level of competition to earn a selection was always going to be tough and the question comes to, who do you take away it from? With that in mind, here are five Jaguars who at least deserve consideration for Pro Bowl honors.
5. Jaguars player who deserves Pro Bowl consideration: Evan Engram
It took Evan Engram a while to reach his potential but he’s become a difference-maker for the Jags in recent weeks. A first-round pick in the 2017 draft by the New York Giants, the former Ole Miss Rebel signed a one-year with Jacksonville in hopes of having a career season and earning a top-market contract in 2023.
Given Engram’s impact this season, he will most likely be in high demand next offseason if he doesn’t return to Jacksonville. Although he had a slow start to the 2022 season, he’s got a strong chance to post career highs for yards in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. His 162 yards on 11 receptions against the Tennessee Titans were a career best in receiving yards in a single game.
Then again, Engram plays in the same conference as Travis Kelce and Mark Andrews, so he was going to have a tough time getting in.
