The Dallas Cowboys have looked like one of the best teams in the NFC this season, and showed that with a 40-3 win over the Minnesota Vikings, a theoretical contender in Week 11. One reason for the Cowboys’ success is the Pro Bowl-caliber players all over their roster.
We are at the point in the season where Pro Bowl voting has officially begun. Since the game itself is officially canceled, the roster will be the roster, and that’s final. We will see no more players backing out, as replacements take their spots. That helps restore some credibility to the honor of being named a Pro Bowler.
Here are the Cowboys that we think should make the Pro Bowl roster.
Predicting which Dallas Cowboys players will make the Pro Bowl in 2022
Offensive Pro Bowlers
Tony Pollard, Running Back
You will be hard-pressed to find a better running back in the NFL on a per-touch basis than Tony Pollard. His 6.4 yards per touch this season is third in the NFL, and despite being 26th in the league in carries, he ranks 12th in rushing yards.
This is the first time in his career that Pollard has been a featured back for multiple games. He has carried the Cowboys’ offense over the past three games, including 100+ yards and one touchdown in each. The Cowboys seem to hit their stride offensively the more Pollard is involved. Look for the 25-year-old to continue leading the backfield to the Pro Bowl.
CeeDee Lamb, Dallas Cowboys
Coming into the season, CeeDee Lamb had to step into the No. 1 receiving role in Dallas. Despite having to play five games with Cooper Rush at quarterback, Lamb has been great this season. Through 10 games, he has 58 receptions for 751 yards and five touchdowns. The 23-year-old is on pace for career highs in all three of those categories.
Dallas will continue to rely on Lamb as the main target in the passing game. So far this season, he is second in the NFL in target share at 32.1%. If he can continue at the pace he is going, there is no doubt he should be a part of the Pro Bowl team.
Zack Martin, Right Guard
The three certainties in life are death, taxes, and Zack Martin making the Pro Bowl. Martin has played at least 11 games in seven of his eight seasons, and he has made the Pro Bowl every one of those years. While his greatness might go unnoticed, the 32-year-old has been the one sure thing on the Dallas offensive line.
According to Pro Football Focus, Martin played 643 offensive snaps this season entering Week 12, and in that time did not allow a sack or commit a penalty. There is not a right guard in the sport better than the former first-round pick. His play should once again be granted a Pro Bowl berth.
