It's getting to be that time in the season where you start to look at a player's production, and see where that ranks him amongst his peers. Sure, Pro Bowl voting can be a bit arbitrary, but it's still a distinguished award a player can proudly display on his resume.
The Redskins have some players who are making a significant impact on their team this year. Some of those players have stats to back up that production, while other's performances can be better measured by the success of their unit as a whole. As Pro Bowl consideration is upon us, I figured it would be a good idea to take a look at some players who could receive consideration for the honor.
Below is a list of some Redskins who may be considered for a spot on the Pro Bowl roster:
Kirk Cousins(10 games) - 3091 yards, 17 TD's, 7 INT's, 67.2 completion percentage, 8.0 YPC, 14 sacks
- Cousins had a rocky start to the season, but since then, he's been magical. He's currently third in the league in passing yards, and is on pace for close to 5000 yards on the season. His touchdowns are a bit low at 17, but he's been heating up as of late. If he hits 30, and leads his team to another playoff birth, a Pro Bowl nod may be in his future.
Jamison Crowder(10 games) - 47 receptions, 637 yards, 6 TD's
- Crowder is on pace for his first 1000 yard receiving season, and is well on his way to double digit touchdowns. If he accomplishes both of these, and nears or surpasses 80 receptions, he may have a shot at his first Pro Bowl birth.
Jordan Reed(8 games) - 49 receptions, 535 yards, 3 TD's
- Despite missing two games with concussion like symptoms, Reed is still on pace for a 80+ reception, 800 yard season as a tight end. His touchdown numbers are down from last season, but his overall production remains high.
Brandon Scherff(10 games) - Scherff is having an outstanding second season at right guard. He is dominating in the run game, often seen mauling his man at the line of scrimmage, crushing linebackers at the second level, and leading the ball carrier on screens. His pass protection is equally as good. His physicality, intelligence, attitude and talent all make him a candidate for the Pro Bowl.
Ryan Kerrigan - 22 tackles, 8 sacks, 1 FF
- Kerrigan is currently tied for 7th in the league in sacks with 8. If he can average a sack per game over the remainder of the season, he may have a chance to make the Pro Bowl.
Trent Murphy - 30 tackles, 7 sacks, 3 FF
- Although Kerrigan often steals the headlines, it is Murphy who is arguably having the better overall season. Murphy will really need to turn it on over the last 6 games, but a Pro Bowl birth is not out of the question.
Chris Baker - 30 tackles, 3 sacks, 2 FF
- Baker may not get the love that some of the league's best defensive tackles get, but make no mistake that his presence on the field is a disruptive one. He consistently collapses the pocket from the interior, and shows penetration in the run game.
Josh Norman - 39 tackles, 11 passes defended, 1 INT, 2 FF
- Norman has been outstanding in coverage, and solid against the run. He is a complete cornerback, who can completely shut down an opponents best receiver, or one side of the field.
Dustin Hopkins - 23 for 27 FGM, 23 for 25 XPM
- Hopkins is tied for the league lead with 23 field goals made.
