Last week, the NFL announced the players who were selected for the 2023 Pro Bowl Games. Which Minnesota Vikings were the biggest snubs?

The 2022 Minnesota Vikings are 12-3 and are kings of the NFC North. They have plenty of stars on both sides of the ball and many who have played well enough to be voted to the 2023 Pro Bowl Games.

Just last week, the Pro Bowl rosters were announced, and there were five Vikings who made the cut. Quarterback Kirk Cousins, wide receiver Justin Jefferson, tight end T.J. Hockenson, outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith, and long snapper Andrew DePaola were the men in purple who landed a spot on the NFC roster.

While those five are definitely worthy, there were a handful of talented Minnesota players who were left off the roster. These players have put together fine seasons, and some even have better stats than the guys from the same position group that actually did end up getting a spot.

So who are the five biggest snubs from the 2022 Vikings? Who are the Minnesota players that should’ve been named to the roster to take part in what is now just a glorified skills competition?
