Cowboys news: Trevon Diggs ranking high in Pro Bowl voting
By Peter Panacy
The Cowboys can be awfully happy second-year cornerback Trevon Diggs is emerging as one of the top vote-getters in 2022 Pro Bowl voting.
Fans across the NFL are finally starting to piece it together why Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs is one of the league’s top defenders this season.
Of course, Cowboys fans know this all too well, as he’s been an integral part of a defense that has turned a notable page since the struggles of a year ago. And while defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has helped matters a lot on that side of the ball, it’s always important to have quality players playing at a high level.
Diggs, the second-year pro out of Alabama, is surely one of those players.
Just for reference, in case you forgot, Diggs is currently the league leader with eight interceptions on the season, also boasting an NFL-best 142 interception-return yards and two defensive touchdowns, probably putting him in line for a first-team All-Pro selection by the time the year is up.
For now, however, he’s looking like he’ll receive his first nationally recognized accolade of epic proportions.
Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs is No. 5 in early 2022 Pro Bowl voting
It’s one thing just to be named to the Pro Bowl. It’s another to be within the top echelon of vote-getters, which is precisely where Diggs is right now.
The NFL just released its top names who’ve been receiving the most votes this season, and it shouldn’t be shocking Diggs is right there at No. 5 overall with 75,637 votes just behind some pretty notable names across the league:
Frequently, fan-based Pro Bowl voting is a popularity contest, although Indianapolis Colts running back Jonathan Taylor has surely turned himself into a household name this season with 1,444 all-purpose yards on the year.
Everyone else on the list ahead of Diggs, however, commands that name recognition.
Looks like Diggs has, too.
It’s great news for the Cowboys, who are watching their star cornerback develop into one of the predominant players in the entire league this season.
Make sure you vote for Diggs and all your favorite Dallas players en route to the Pro Bowl this season.
