Most notably, Darius Slay is the leading vote-getter among all NFC cornerbacks. Slay has never made a Pro Bowl in his four-year career, but currently leads all cornerbacks with four interceptions and 15 passes defended. According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Slay ranks fourth among all NFL cornerbacks in voting.
Fellow defensive back Glover Quin is also in the mix for the Pro Bowl this year, but he’s got some ground to make up:

For the year, Quin is fifth among safeties with three interceptions and he is currently the third-highest graded safety according to Pro Football Focus. Quin last made the Pro Bowl in 2014, when he led the league with seven interceptions.
Then there’s No. 9 himself. Matthew Stafford has made the Pro Bowl once, but it’s not looking good for his chances to make a repeat performance. According to Birkett, Stafford ranks ninth in voting among NFL quarterbacks and seventh in the conference. Stafford is currently ninth in passer rating, but is in the middle of one of the best months of his career.
Then there’s the special teamers. Despite another year filled with game-winning, clutch kicks, Matt Prater is only ninth among kicker votes. Prater currently holds the third-longest field goal this season (58 yards) and no one has made more kicks from 50+ yards.
Additionally, there’s Jamal Agnew. Agnew is not the top vote getter among NFC return specialists. That honor belongs to the Eagles wide receiver Pharoh Cooper, who leads the NFL in kick return yards (603) and has an average of 30.2 yards per return (second). Agnew currently leads all punt returners both in yards (370) and in average yards per punt return (16.8). He also has two of the league’s six punt return touchdowns this year.
If you don’t like the results, make sure you do your part and vote. You can vote as many times as you like, so get your fingers a-cramping.
