The latest Pro Bowl numbers are out and the NY Jets have a number of players making a push for this season's so-called "Pro Bowl Games" that will be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

In fact, seven Jets players currently rank among the top 10 at their respective positions in votes. Of course, this is only counting the fan voting portion of the player selection process which accounts for one-third of the total ballot.

A few notable Jets players do not find themselves ranked inside the top 10 at their positions which doesn't bode well for their chances of making the Pro Bowl. Players like D.J. Reed and Greg Zuerlein haven't received the same level of fan support as their teammates have.

The following seven players, though, do have a chance to make the Pro Bowl this season, at least thanks to the fan voting process.

7. Braxton Berrios, KR/PR, NY Jets

  • Current Votes Rank: 10th (6th in AFC)

Braxton Berrios became the first Jets player to be named first-team All-Pro since Jamal Adams in 2019 last season. However, he was controversially snubbed from making the Pro Bowl.

Berrios has a chance at redemption this season, although his numbers are down from a year ago. The space just hasn't been there for Berrios to break many long returns, either in the kick or punt game.

His 23.6 yards per kick return rank 14th among players with at least 14 kick returns. He's fared better as a punt returner with a 12.4 average that ranks third in the league, but it's hard to make a Pro Bowl case for him right now.

Berrios ranks sixth in the AFC meaning it's unlikely he'll be able to make up enough ground, but one return for a touchdown could change everything. He has an outside chance of making the trip to Vegas.
