We’ll find out who is going to the 2017 Pro Bowl in the next few weeks, but if a poll by First Coast News of Jacksonville Jaguars players is any indication, Telvin Smith and Paul Posluszny could be in for a drive down to Orlando next month.
According to Mike Kaye of First Coast News, 47 Jaguars players were polled — some from the active roster, some from the practice squad — and were asked to choose the two players they’d send. The only stipulation to be able to vote? They had to have appeared in at least one game in their career.
13 players received at least one vote but the top two selections were often picked together as linebackers Telvin Smith and Paul Posluszny ran away with the vote. Smith garnered 28 selections, while Posluszny was voted in 21 times.
Kaye went on to say that the next closest voting total was Linder, who was the only offensive player that received multiple votes with 11. Defensive ends Malik Jackson got 10 votes and Yannick Ngakoue, with eight votes, rounded out the top five of the poll. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey received five votes and was the only other player to receive multiple votes.
So who got the single votes? Punter Brad Nortman, cornerback Prince Amukamara, defensive tackle Abry Jones, wide receivers Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson, safety Tashaun Gipson, and offensive tackles Jermey Parnell and Kelvin Beachum.
