5 Dallas Cowboys Make 2019 Pro Bowl Roster

The Dallas Cowboys will be well represented in the 2019 Pro Bowl. Last night, five players were named to the NFC roster: RB Ezekiel Elliott, OT Tyron Smith, G Zack Martin, DE DeMarcus Lawrence, and CB Byron Jones.

Dallas tied the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints for the most players to the NFC team. However, the Los Angeles Chargers led all teams with seven players making the AFC squad. The Chiefs and Steelers had six players each.

Congratulations to #DallasCowboys @Byron31Jump, Tyron Smith, @TankLawrence, @thegob70 and @EzekielElliott who are #ProBowl Bound!

Byron Jones is the only first-time Pro Bowler among the Cowboys. He’s been one of the best cornerbacks in football this year, switching back to the position after a few years playing safety.

This will be the second-straight Pro Bowl for DeMarcus Lawrence, who remains among the league’s most feared pass rushers. It’s also the second trip for Ezekiel Elliott, who went as a rookie but missed last year’s game with his suspension issues.

Pro Bowl fixtures Tyron Smith and Zack Martin return for the sixth and fifth-straight years, respectively. For Martin, it preserves his streak of making the team every year since he came into the NFL.

Even with these five players being named, you could argue that Dallas deserved a couple more. Rookie LB Leighton Vander Esch has been one of the top defensive players in the league this year. And WR Amari Cooper, once he got to Dallas, has been as productive as any receiver in football.

That aside, congratulations to Zeke, Tyron, Zack, Tank, and Byron for making this year’s team!

What do you think?
