3 Cowboys Players Most Likely to Make Their First Pro Bowl in 2022

Making a Pro Bowl in the NFL isn’t an easy task, fan, player and media voting all play a role in who makes the roster at their respective positions. A guy needs to have a very productive season, on a good team and have name recognition to be recognized.

In this article we’re going to look at 3 players that could make their first Pro Bowls in 2022.

Dalton Schultz

Surprisingly, Dalton Schultz didn’t make the Pro Bowl roster in 2021. He had one of the best tight end seasons in the NFL but ultimately wasn’t named to the first Pro Bowl of his career. If Schultz can stack another really good season on top of the 2 he has already had, he could be a favorite to make the Pro Bowl as an NFC tight end.

With the departure of Amari Cooper, Blake Jarwin and Cedrick Wilson the target shares have skyrocketed for Schultz and he should be an even bigger contributor to this Cowboys squad this upcoming season.

Jayron Kearse

Another player that might have deserved a nod from Pro Bowl voters last year was Cowboys Safety Jayron Kearse. Kearse led the teams defensive backs in tackles while playing the best season of his career.

If Kearse takes a small step forward in his play from a year ago, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him make the first Pro Bowl of his career. On the other hand, Kearse is really a dual player that see a lot of snaps closer to the line of scrimmage than the after Safety, playing that big nickel role in Dan Quinns defense. Even with that holding back his chances, Quinn will give Kearse every opportunity to prove he is one of the top safeties in the game.

Tony Pollard

Tony Pollard is a pro bowl type player already, he just hasn’t seen the opportunities to really showcase what he is capable of with a larger workload. He is the closest thing the Cowboys have to a Deebo Samuel type player. Pollard has the big play ability to stand out from the rest of the leagues rushers and is already recognized as one of the best number 2 running backs in the NFL.

If Dallas decides to split the carries 50/50 between Pollard and Elliott in 2022, I expect Pollards numbers to be at a Pro Bowl level.

The biggest downside to Pollards Pro Bowl odds are his opportunities, but similar to guys like Dalton Schultz, he may benefit from the departure of Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson with the Cowboys utilizing him more as a pass catcher.
