Which current college football player has the best odds of becoming a pro bowler?
My guess plays for LSU, but I don't want to be a homer, so ill ask the experts on the MSB.

It's ok, you can say Stingley.

Trevor Lawrence

6 QBs each year make the pro bowl. The 4 QBs in the Conference Championship rarely go, and are replaced, In addition one or 2 QBs will opt out due to injury/surgery.

So most years 1/3 of the leagues starting QBs will make the pro bowl. I like his odds.

QBs are usually a bigger crapshoot than other positions.

I swear I thought you meant professional bowler.

I need to go back to bed.

Pro and bowler are supposed to be separated right?

That's a solid 1B. He's less likely to get injured than Stingley.

ETA: Or is that something I just fabricated? Could be, I don't have the stats.

He's an immediate franchise LT. CBs usually take a little longer to acclimate but Sting is right there.

Thanks for reminding me how dumb it is that they play the Pro Bowl between the Conferences Championship Games and Super Bowl every year.

You'd first want to determine which, if any of them, like to bowl.

I'm going to take the safe money and say a DE from Ohio State.

Sewell, Lawrence, Chase, Devonta Smith.

I truly think Smith will be a better pro than Ruggs, Jeudy, or Waddle.

Chase. Lawrence is far from a sure thing. He'll be the first pick for sure, but he's pretty soft and will likely wind up on a shitty team for several years. Chase and sTingley are pretty sure things. I don't know who the best ot's are in college or I'd pick one of them.

Gregory Rousseau from Miami. He's an absolute animal. I think he may get more hype than Chase Young this upcoming season and it'll be warranted.

Those are my exact thoughts as well. My only hesitation is that it’s hard for a QB to be named to the initial roster, and the replacements are often a crapshoot.

Andy Dalton made 3 Pro Bowls, despite a very average career.

Joe Flacco never made a Pro Bowl, despite having a very similar career.

Andy Dalton had good seasons on good teams, but the Bengals would get knocked out in the Wildcard round, making him a prime replacement candidate.

Meanwhile, Flacco had a few seasons good enough to be considered a replacement, but the Ravens would go deep into the playoffs
