Around the NFL's Gregg Rosenthal published on NFL.com yesterday a list of nine players who are primed to make their Pro Bowl debut. Two players from the AFC East made the list, Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore and New England Patriots linebacker Dont'a Hightower, but no Miami Dolphins players were selected for the list. That brings up the question, however, if any Dolphins players are poised to make their debut in the league's all-star game in January when it moves to Orlando.
Obviously, the question rules out players like Jarvis Landry, Mike Pouncey, Reshad Jones, Branden Albert, Cameron Wake, Ndamukong Suh, and Mario Williams. But, there could be players who might make the game for the first time. Could DeVante Parker work his way into the event? Might Ryan Tannehill have a year worthy of selection? Could Jay Ajayi thrive in his role as the starting running back? How about Byron Maxwell or Kiko Alonso proving their doubters wrong? What about a rookie like Laremy Tunsil or Xavien Howard?
We ask you this morning, what Dolphins player is poised for a Pro Bowl debut this year?
