Lock: Justin Jefferson – WR

Justin Jefferson continues to make his case as a Hall of Famer, despite only playing two and a half seasons in the league. This year, Jefferson is a single yard behind Miami Dolphin’s wide receiver Tyreek Hill for leading the league in receiving yards.

His grab on fourth and eighteen against the Buffalo Bills was more than enough to shock the NFL world and gain fans’ respect in the form of voting him into the Pro Bowl.

Currently, Jefferson leads the voting of all players for the Pro Bowl Games, making him a lock for the star-studded event in Las Vegas.

While there are other star wide receivers in the league, such as Jefferson’s predecessor in Minnesota, and current Bills wide receiver, Stefon Diggs, no one has been able to do what Jefferson has in his first two and a half seasons with the Vikings.

With an astronomical number of votes to his name and dominating performance week in and week out, Jefferson is all but a lock to make his third Pro Bowl.
