4 Vikings who are locks to make the Pro Bowl in 2023 and 4 who aren’t
By Randy Smith
The Minnesota Vikings have a plethora of talent on their roster, but who will make the Pro Bowl in 2022, and who will have to wait another year?
The Minnesota Vikings are standing tall with a 9-2 record, and they have all but locked up the division to capture their first NFC North crown since the 2017 season. For their efforts, fans can expect some of their favorite players to make the Pro Bowl this year.
Voting is open on the NFL website, with the ability for fans to select any player off of a given team in hopes of the said player making the trip to Las Vegas, Nevada on February 5.
The game itself will be a bit different, as the contact aspect of football has been excluded from the Pro Bowl in replacement of a flag football game preceded by various skill and mini-game events.
Still, fans, players, and coaches will be able to make their voices heard for the Pro Bowl roster, and with the success that the Vikings have had this season, a good amount of players will likely be in conversation to receive enough votes to make it in.
While Minnesota has never been the A-List sports city, its record should speak for itself in regard to player candidacy and will create a case for many names from the Vikings to have a game to play in February if the team isn’t competing for their first Lombardi.
But football is a young man’s game as it is, and with emerging young stars in the league rising up, some players may miss the cut of making it to the Pro Bowl. Let’s take a look at the players who are locks for the Pro Bowl and others who might just be a close call.
