The Colts had multiple Pro Bowlers last season, including two first-timers. Which players can elevate their play to be first time Pro Bowl selections this season?
The Colts played solid the last half of the season. They played so solid in fact that they ended up having three Pro Bowl selections, though Darius Leonard was notably absent. He should have gotten selected. He would have been the third first time Pro Bowler chosen.
There are several players on the roster who could end up being Pro Bowlers for the first time this season. One of those is Pierre Desir. The rangy corner just signed an extension in the offseason. He had his best season as a pro in 2018. If he duplicates that, he could be in the Pro Bowl.
His fellow corner Kenny Moore also has a chance. Moore was the Colts’ best overall corner last season, creating plays all over the place. Even from the slot corner position, he is good enough to put up numbers that would be worthy of a Pro Bowl selection.
On offense, Marlon Mack is a candidate. He was splendid at the end of the season, and was gashing defenses. He set a franchise record for rushing yards in a playoff game in their victory against Houston. He could continue his momentum in 2019.
The key for Mack is to stay healthy. Mack missed a number of games early in the season. He had issues with that in 2017 too. If he can stay healthy, he is one of the Colts’ best players on offense. He can put up the numbers to make it to the Pro Bowl for sure.
Health is the key for all of these players to put up good enough numbers to make the Pro Bowl. But don’t be surprised if any of these players get chosen.
