The 49ers just announced tight end George Kittle and fullback Kyle Juszczyk will be in the 2019 Pro Bowl, and defensive tackle DeForest Buckner, kicker Robbie Gould and linebacker Mark Nzeocha will be Pro Bowl alternates.

Kittle, 25, will make his Pro Bowl debut. This season, he has 72 catches for 1,154 yards and four touchdowns.

Juszczyk, 27, will make his third-straight Pro Bowl appearance. He has 29 catches for 309 yards and one touchdown this season.

Kittle and Juszczyk both deserve to make the Pro Bowl, but Buckner is the 49ers’ best player. He deserves to make the Pro Bowl, too. He’s one of the most underrated players in the NFL.

What do you think of the Pro Bowl selections?

      1. Hey Seb genius,
        Last years Super Bowl has no bearings on the Pro Bowl. Get a clue. Buckner is the 2nd best DT in the league. He got snubbed.

        1. Guess you have never heard of a term like ‘rep’.
          Fletcher Cox made the Pro bowl in 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018. He has good rep.
          Eagles were the SB champions last season, but they do not have a winning record this season. Cox still maintains his Pro Bowl rep despite being on a non winning team. The other 2 are on playoff teams with winning records.

  1. Interior lineman: Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams; Fletcher Cox, Philadelphia Eagles; Akiem Hicks, Chicago Bears

    His Buck better than the 3 above…?

  2. Better than Donald …NO, better than Cox and Hicks, definitely, and he’s doing this with constant double teams on our DLine, and he only gets in as an alternate? Even if the voting was tallied before the last game he was still better.

  3. I hear Buck finished sixth. Seems rather low to me, but winning teams get more exposure for their players.

    I think he was #2 by fan votes, though players and coaches hadn’t weighed in. Now, we disagree with players and coaches?

    I certainly do from time-to-time. They are subject to the same prejudices we are and tend to put greater value on exposure too (that’s why draft boards have climbers after the season and in lead up to the draft).

  4. Buckner doesn’t enjoy another rusher who can help disrupt or take away from the constant double team Buckner faces.

    IMHO this makes Buckner second only to Donald.

    1. Naw, JH just signed up the 5th best recruiting class in the nation, so he is fixated on winning at Michigan.
      If he can win a collegiate championship, he will be set for life, and follow in the footsteps of Bo Schembechler.
