LeSean McCoy, RB, fourth Pro Bowl selection: One could make the argument that McCoy was a slight surprise as a Pro Bowl selection. He ranks ninth in rushing yards and 15th in rushing average this season. Although his production took a hit because of an early-season hamstring injury, his statistics didn't have the same sizzle as the past two seasons, when he rushed for 1,319 yards (in 2014) and 1,607 yards (in 2013). With that said, McCoy became a vital part of the Bills' offense as the season progressed and is not undeserving of the Pro Bowl nod.


Richie Incognito, G: This could be one of the biggest snubs of the entire process. Incognito has been a rock along the Bills' offensive line this season and has been graded second among all NFL guards by Pro Football Focus. His suspension and year away from the NFL likely played a role in him not receiving votes from fans, other players and coaches, but Incognito's on-field play this season was easily deserving of a Pro Bowl nod. All six of the guards who earned a Pro Bowl selection were in the Top 13 of PFF's rankings at the position, so there isn't a player who clearly wasn't deserving in place of Incognito.

Ronald Darby, CB: Few rookies often make the Pro Bowl, so Darby not cracking the field -- at least initially -- isn't much of a surprise. However, his play this season has been deserving of recognition. Pro Football Focus ranks him as the NFL's sixth-best corner, and although he has stumbled in recent weeks, the whole body of Darby's work should be in the conversation for a trip to Hawaii.
