5 Detroit Lions Who Could Make Pro Bowl in 2014

The Detroit Lions aren't known for sending multiple players to the Pro Bowl in a single year, but things have changed recently. With talented players like Calvin Johnson and Ndamukong Suh, the Lions will likely send at least a couple of players to the Pro Bowl. Here are five Lions players who could make the Pro Bowl in 2015.

When Matthew Stafford is on his game, he is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. In the past, he hasn't had much good coaching around him and struggled with turnovers and bad mechanics. Now with two quarterback gurus in Jim Caldwell and Joe Lombardi, it is perfectly reasonable to expect Stafford to have a Pro Bowl-caliber season.

Offensive linemen are the least talked-about players on an NFL team, but they are some of the most valuable players on the team. This is true in Detroit as second-year player Larry Warford had a great rookie season in 2013, one that was worthy of Pro Bowl recognition. Warford is already Detroit's best offensive lineman heading into just his second season.

While Warford was a breakout player as a rookie, linebacker DeAndre Levy improved the most from any player last season. The former Wisconsin Badger finished last season with over 100 tackles and six interceptions. Levy was one of the biggest Pro Bowl snubs last season, and will only continue to get better in 2014.

These next two players are the most obvious selections, and the first is defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. In just four seasons, Suh has been named to three Pro Bowls. Suh is one of, if not the best defensive tackle in the NFL, and will be even more motivated this season as he enters a contract year.

If there is any Lions player who is a lock to reach this year's Pro Bowl, it is wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Johnson has made the Pro Bowl in each of the past four seasons, and has been at the top of most significant receiving categories. Even when double or triple-teamed, Johnson still makes a lot of big plays for the offense.
