5 Houston Texans Players Who Could Make Pro Bowl in 2014

5 Houston Texans Players Who Could Make Pro Bowl in 2014

The Houston Texans tied for the league high with nine players in the 2013 Pro Bowl. That number was cut down to three in 2014. I think the case can be made for the Texans to bump up their Pro Bowl production this year. Here are five Houston players that could make the Pro Bowl this season.

Making the Pro Bowl as a rookie isn't overly common, but neither are athletes like Jadeveon Clowney. He is going into a perfect situation with the Texans. The obvious benefit of playing on the opposite of J.J. Watt will simplify his job. He also has the advantage of name recognition which never hurts in the Pro Bowl selection process.

The biggest obstacle that Arian Foster will have this season will be staying healthy. He has proven to be a very productive player when he is on the field. It wouldn't be shocking to see Foster back among the running back leaders this year.

Andre Johnson has been one of the most consistent wide receivers in the NFL during his career. That consistency has earned him seven trips to the Pro Bowl. Houston's quarterback play is the most worrisome aspect for Johnson making the Pro Bowl, but he has managed to put up good numbers with subpar quarterbacks in the past.

Pro Bowl voters tend to be predictable when it comes to the offensive line selections. Duane Brown has made the Pro Bowl each of the last two seasons. Brown is still in the prime years of his career, so I would be surprised if he isn't selected to his third straight Pro Bowl.

J.J. Watt should just plan on being in Hawaii during late January for the foreseeable future. He is the most impactful defensive player in the league. It truly will be scary if Jadeveon Clowney lives up to his potential, because then Watt might not face a double team every play.
