The Dallas Cowboys are having a great season to this point. They’re 10-4, a win away from winning the NFC East for the 1st time since 2018, and sitting in the number 2 spot of the playoff picture.
There have been plenty of great performances from this team this season, by some great players, and now we’re seeing some rewards being reaped from it.
The Dallas Cowboys have 5 selections, for the 2021-22 Pro Bowl, the most since 2019.
Noteworthy names we’ll see will be 2nd-year corner back Trevon Diggs and rookie linebacker Micah Parsons. Diggs, who finished 5th in fan voting, only trailed Johanthan Taylor, Nick Bosa, Travis Kelce and Kyle Juszczyk in polls. While Parsons is the highest voted-on rookie and inside linebacker for the event.
Included are some very familiar names, as well as a 1st timer. A 1st timer, that’s a long time come.
The complete list of Dallas Cowboys in the Pro Bowl is set below:
OT: Tyron Smith, 8th Selection
OG: Zack Martin, 7th Selection
CB: Trevon Diggs, 1st Selection
LB: Micah Parsons, 1st Selection
P: Bryan Anger, 1st Selection
Notable players absent from this list include QB Dak Prescott, TE Dalton Schultz and C Tyler Biadasz, who at one time lead centers in fan votes.
The Dallas Cowboys had no Pro Bowl selections in 2020, the 1st time that happened since 1989. A big-time turnaround.
It’s worth noting that teams that will play in the Super Bowl won’t have any selections play play in the Pro Bowl. Hopefully, that’s the case for these Cowboys players come February.
Alternates will be revealed later.
This year’s Pro Bowl will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada at Allegiant Stadium to make up for missing last year’s Pro Bowl due to the COVID-19 outbreak. It will air February, 6 2022 on ESPN, ABC and Disney XD, the Sunday before the Super Bowl.
