Miami Dolphins possible first-time Pro Bowler: Jaylen Waddle
This is perhaps the option on this list that is most likely to happen.
Jaylen Waddle had one of the better rookie seasons for a wide receiver in NFL history, and he might get even more opportunities in 2022. He was the go-to option in what was an otherwise abysmal offense last year, and he may get even more chances this coming season with defenses honed in on new teammate Tyreek Hill.
Speaking of whom, Hill will be one of the players that Waddle needs to beat out should he hope to earn his first Pro Bowl honors. There are four official wide receivers named to the yearly roster, which consisted of Ja’Marr Chase, Stefon Diggs, Keenan Allen, and Hill last year. If Waddle performs as well as some are projecting him to, he might find a way to sneak in past one of those guys.
And while it isn’t technically the same honor, there are two reserve spots for wide receivers in the Pro Bowl as well. Those spots were taken up by Diontae Johnson and Hunter Renfrow in last year’s game, and Waddle figures to be able to outperform both of them statistically.
