Last year, the Buffalo Bills had three players in the Pro Bowl: Tyrod Taylor, Richie Incognito, and Eric Wood. For Taylor and Wood, it was their first appearance in the NFL's version of an All-Star game. In 2016, there are plenty of Bills who could appear in their first Pro Bowl and FOX Sports has pegged two specific players that they see making the game.
In their article, 11 players who will make their first Pro Bowl in 2016, two Bills were named: Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby. Here's what FOX Sports said about Watkins and Darby:
Ronald Darby, CB, Buffalo Bills
It was a huge letdown that Darby didn't make the Pro Bowl last season. Not only was he a Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate, but he was a top cornerback in the league. His 23 total passes defensed were fifth in the NFL, more than the likes of Richard Sherman, Patrick Peterson and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. He certainly deserved to be in Hawaii last season, but his limited number of interceptions (two) probably kept him out. With a year of experience under his belt, Darby is set to emerge as a perennial Pro Bowler.
Sammy Watkins, WR, Buffalo Bills
It's somewhat surprising that Watkins has never made a Pro Bowl. The former No. 4 overall pick hasn't been completely dominant in the NFL, but in two seasons, he's recorded more than 2,000 yards receiving and has 15 career touchdowns. Injuries likely prevented Watkins from making it last season, but if he can stay healthy, he'll be there this season. In just 13 games, he had 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns. He and Tyrod Taylor will build on their growing chemistry with another year together in Buffalo.
It's hard to argue with the choices made by FOX Sports. In addition to Darby and Watkins, Cordy Glenn, Jerry Hughes, and Stephon Gilmore are other players that Buffalo Football Report could see making the Pro Bowl in 2016.null
