Anthony Harris – S

Elementary stuff here. Anthony Harris indubitably should have made the Pro Bowl last year. So, if anything, the NFL should send him a postcard notifying him of honors after the fact.

Harris led the league in interceptions in 2019, for starters. That alone should punch his ticket to Pro Bowl inclusion.

There’s more. In passer-rating-against, Harris was filthy-good. Opposing quarterbacks that targeted Harris were met with a 44.2 passer rating. Another renowned safety from around the NFL, Tyrann Matthieu, had a 57.8 passer-rating-against in 2019. Young safety Jamal Adams of the New York Jets had a 75.2.

Without a doubt, Harris has the resumé to merit a Pro Bowl berth. He must now rely on the prolonged success to promote his candidacy or a newfound nationwide recognition that has not yet found him.

As mentioned earlier, the Pro Bowl nod inexplicably found Xavier Rhodes in 2019. The two men do play different positions, but any pundit or fan with a speck of football intelligence would retroactively swap Rhodes and Harris on last year’s Pro Bowl rosters.
