Dawkins has now been named to the Pro Bowl for the NFC and the AFC. It was the first selection for Dawkins as a member of the Denver Broncos after seven selections as a Philadelphia Eagle between 1996-08.
Dawkins has been named to the Pro Bowl more than any other former Clemson player. Michael Dean Perry, who also played for Denver at one time, is second with six selections.
Dawkins has also made the Pro Bowl after the 1999, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2008 seasons. The Pro Bowl is scheduled for Sunday, January 31 and will be played in Miami.
Dawkins, who starred at Clemson from 1992-95, is now among the top four safeties in the history of the National Football League in terms of Pro Bowl selections.
In his first year in Denver, Dawkins has made an immediate impact, helping the Broncos defense rank second against the pass and fifth in the league in total defense. Through 15 games, the 14-year veteran -- who finished second among AFC strong safeties in fan voting -- has 108 tackles, two interceptions, one forced fumble and 11 passes defensed.
In November, Dawkins was listed to the NFL's All-Decade Team by SI.com writer Peter King.
