3 things we should see from the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2023
2. Jacksonville Jaguars players must earn Pro Bowl, and All-Pro recognition
It was a nice gesture to see Trevor Lawrence and return specialist Jamal Agnew make the Pro Bowl as an alternate. However, it feels like there were other Jaguars equally deserving of being elected in 2022 and didn’t make the cut. Wide receiver Christian Kirk comes to mind, and so does tight end Evan Engram.
Looking back, it’s kind of puzzling that Baltimore Ravens backup quarterback Tyler Huntley also earned a Pro Bowl selection. No disrespect to Huntley but he didn’t particularly light up the stat sheet, going 75-of-112 (67 percent completion rate) for 658 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions.
It’s possible that the Jaguars didn’t see many of their players get a Pro Bowl nod because they haven’t been consistently good and haven’t gotten nearly as much attention from the national media as other clubs. On the other hand, Jacksonville should have no trouble turning heads if they get off to a hot start and once again make the playoffs.
Lawrence had a pretty productive sophomore campaign and should be even better in Year 3. Similarly, other Jaguars such as safety Andre Cisco, cornerback Tyson Campbell, and right guard Brandon Scherff should have a strong case to make the Pro Bowl and even the All-Pro team if they play the way they did last season.
Again, the Jaguars hadn’t been good in a while, so fans weren’t necessarily disappointed about the team’s lack of Pro Bowl players but that was then. Moving forward, Jacksonville should be well-represented in the Pro Bowl.
