Top 10 candidates to make their first Pro Bowl

The Pro Bowl is often a popularity contest, especially when it comes to lesser-known positions, and the AFC will likely see Justin Tucker reach his fifth Pro Bowl. But if we're going off conversion rates, Bass deserves this honor. The kicker has made 19 of 20 field-goal attempts, good for the best field-goal percentage in the league (95%) among qualified kickers, and he's hit all 29 of his extra-point tries this season, meaning he's the most consistent kicker in the NFL to this point. He's even making the occasional unlikely kick, converting at a rate of +4.9 percent over expected. Again, it'll likely end up being Tucker, but we can all dream, can't we?
