Pro Bowl voting results have been released and while five Chiefs received the honor, Kansas City's defense was disrespected in a big way.

Only one defensive player, Chris Jones, was named a Pro Bowler, leaving no member of the spetacular secondary recognized.

Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Creed Humphrey and Joe Thuney joined Jones as Pro Bowlers, but more Chiefs deserved the honor.

Let's look at three Chiefs who were should have been Pro Bowlers.

3 Chiefs Who Were Snubbed From the Pro Bowl

1. L'Jarius Sneed - CB

Sneed is the single biggest snub in the league. He's been the NFL's best cornerback this year, routinely smothering top opposing receivers for an excellent secondary, shadowing everyone from Tyreek Hill to A.J. Brown to Ja'Marr Chase.

On the season, Sneed allowed a 56.2 passer rating when targeted despite drawing the most difficult assignments. He's got 78 tackles with a pair of interceptions and 14 deflected passes. If the season ended today, I'd vote him to be a first-team All-Pro.

Think of all of the talented receivers the Chiefs played against this year. Hill, Brown, Chase, DJ Moore, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Keenan Allen, Justin Jefferson, etc. That's a long list of great wideouts, yet none of them found the end zone against Sneed.

The former fourth-round pick is an alternate, but that's not good enough. Fingers crossed the Chiefs make the Super Bowl so it won't matter anyway, though the league needs to give Sneed the recognition he deserves.

As it stands, extending Sneed is my No. 1 priority for Brett Veach this offseason. I'll note that Trent McDuffie was a huge snub here too and all of the same arguments for Sneed hold true for him, though I wanted to highlight some other positions wih the next couple of players.
