62. player. 54. . . . Jason Kelce, center

Jason Kelce and Darius Slay will most certainly be on the Pro Bowl roster.

At some point, Jason Kelce will hang up the cleats and decide that he doesn’t want to play the game anymore. No one wants to hear that. It’s an ugly fact of life, but we’ve long resigned ourselves to the fact that he won’t be the Eagles center forever.

Why does it feel like he could be if he wanted to though?

Maybe it’s because 11 previous NFL seasons have produced four First-Team All-Pro nods and five Pro Bowl nominations. Maybe it’s because, if he continues on the path he’s on, we all know that he has a chance to punctuate his Hall of Fame resume with one or two more mentions.

Number 62 on the field is number one in our hearts. Let’s just go ahead and write his name in now.

Darius Slay. 2. player. 54. . .

Darius Slay earned a spot on this list when he shut down Justin Jefferson in a Week 2 primetime game. The stage never seems too bright. He’s more than earned the nickname ‘Big Play’.

Once he adds a few more of those highlight-reel moments to an already impressive regular-season resume (which is only a matter of time away), it’s going to be hard to keep him off of the Pro Bowl roster.
