QB, Daniel Jones
Daniel Jones, now in his fourth season with the Giants, is yet to earn a trip to the Pro Bowl. And while his making it was unlikely, there was still a case to be made.
The three NFC quarterbacks to make the Pro Bowl in the NFC are Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles, Geno Smith of the Seattle Seahawks, and Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings. All three of them earned their spots, but Jones wasn’t even listed as an alternate option.
Jones is currently playing arguably the best football of his NFL career in 2022. While he hasn’t lit up the stat sheet, he has been exactly what the Giants have needed.
While appearing in all 14 games, Jones has thrown for 2,694 yards and 12 touchdowns. On the ground he has played a crucial role in the running game, generating 583 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 105 carries.
More importantly with Jones, he has worked on his ball security. After being plagued by turnovers over his first three seasons, he has all but eliminated the problem in Year 4. So far, Jones has thrown four interceptions and has lost just one fumble.
Jones, while playing quality football, had a valid case to earn the first Pro Bowl nod of his career. While it would have been difficult to take down the players in front of him, he has done enough to have earned the spot.
