Eric Kendricks – LB
Snub Level: Extremely high
The fact that Eric Kendricks wasn’t named to the 2021 Pro Bowl this year is an absolute travesty. The linebacker was absolutely dominant on the field before being sidelined by a calf injury after Week 12.
In his 11 weeks of play, Kendricks was on an absolute tear, accumulating 107 combined tackles with 69 of those being solo. To put that in perspective, last year the linebacker had 110 combined tackles with 70 solo in 15 games, and he earned a Pro Bowl selection as well an All-Pro First Team nod.
Kendricks has shined in more than just his tackling though. He has a career-high three interceptions this season and he also has six pass breakups during a season that has found him dropping back into coverage more than rushing the passer.
Did the injury come at a bad time? Are there actually linebackers more worthy of a spot on the NFC Pro Bowl roster this season? There is no reason that should have prevented Kendricks from being honored with a Pro Bowl nod this year.
The Minnesota Vikings have boasted some great wide receivers on their team over the years, but who are the 15 best to ever wear a purple and gold jersey?
Do you agree that these three players were Pro Bowl snubs this season? Or did these Vikings stars deserve to be left off the NFC roster this year? Let us know your opinion in the comments section.
