The NFL announced their Pro Bowl roster on Tuesday night, and, of course, outrage followed. Some players, like Kirk Cousins, have a legitimate case for being part of the all-star team. Others... not so much.

There were a few Detroit Lions that caught the national eye as players that deserved more recognition than they got. Chief among them was wide receiver Kenny Golladay. Though Golladay was named a third alternate, but many believed he was snubbed a spot on the original roster.’s Nick Shook listed Golladay as one of his top 10 snubs this year.

“Golladay is an excellent example of how a good receiver can overcome unfortunate quarterbacking circumstances,” Shook wrote. “The wideout is in the midst of a second-straight 1,000-plus-yard season, he’s doubled his touchdown receptions from 2018 (10 this year) and he’s doing it despite having the likes of backup QBs Jeff Driskel and David Blough throwing the ball to him in the second half of the season.”

Golladay was also on snub lists from CBS Sports, and The Ringer.

One other player who may be considered a snub is center Frank Ragnow. PFF is the leading source of this campaign, as the analytics website listed Ragnow to their own 2020 Pro Bowl list.
