Ranking the Commanders’ most deserving of making the Pro Bowl
By Jerry Trotta
4. Terry McLaurin
McLaurin is unfortunately at the mercy of playing a position that is loaded with superstars. Despite that, the fan favorite receiver placed seventh in the NFL and third among NFC wideouts after the first panel of voting.
Vikings star Justin Jefferson is a lock, but there’s a real opening for McLaurin to get over the hump following the injury to the Rams’ Cooper Kupp.
The way we see it McLaurin’s foremost competition are the Eagles’ A.J. Brown and the Cowboys’ CeeDee Lamb. Assuming each conference carries four receivers, McLaurin is well on his way to making his first Pro Bowl given he’s eighth in the entire NFL in receiving yards and yards per catch.
Stats are the ultimate deciding factor, but McLaurin’s single-handedly won two games for the Commanders this season. If that isn’t considered, the NFL should scrap the voting system and start over.
