Before the Pro Bowl teams are announced on "NFL Total Access: Pro Bowl Players Revealed," airing Tuesday night on NFL Network at 8 p.m. ET, Gregg Rosenthal has highlighted one player on each team in the NFL that deserves a spot. Note: These are not necessarily the best or most obvious potential Pro Bowlers on each squad, just players we chose to highlight. (Sorry, Tom Brady.)
Arizona Cardinals: Tony Jefferson, safety. The Cardinals have a ton of Pro Bowlers for a depressing five-win team. David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Calais Campbell and Patrick Peterson come to mind first as near-locks. Jefferson also deserves a nod for a noisy season in which he's always flying around the ball.
Atlanta Falcons: Alex Mack, center. Mack was quietly one of the best free-agent acquisitions of last offseason. He is such a great fit blocking for offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme, especially in the run game.
Dallas Cowboys: Sean Lee, linebacker. The Cowboys aren't likely to rack up double-digit Pro Bowlers like Carolina did last season, because Lee is the only player who should make it from the defense. He's earned it, especially with his play late in the year. It's also worth wondering if big-name Cowboys like Dez Bryant and Jason Witten make it.
Green Bay Packers: Mike Daniels, defensive tackle. This is usually how the Pro Bowl works. A guy gets snubbed for an obvious honor one year, and then he gets the recognition the following season. Daniels was possibly more dominant last season, but he's been plenty disruptive this year, too. Teammate Nick Perry could be next season's Mike Daniels, getting some national love a year late.
Minnesota Vikings: Everson Griffen, defensive end. It might be tough to find room for Griffen at a crowded position, but this would be a terrific lifetime achievement honor for one of the most underrated pass rushers in football. He is still making big plays, with 22 QB hits, nine tackles for loss and eight sacks this season.
New York Giants: Janoris Jenkins, cornerback. Jenkins' competitiveness sticks out week after week. While the Giants' additions on the defensive line got the most press in the offseason, the upgrade of the secondary provided by Jenkins -- who left Sunday's win over the Lionswith a back injury -- proved just as important.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Mike Evans, wide receiver. Quarterback Jameis Winston feeds the ball to Evans so much because he can get away with it. Perhaps no receiver in football is better at bodying cornerbacks to grab contested catches, even when he's not particularly open. Evans has more than double the yardage of any other wideout on the Bucs.
