3. Harrison Butker - K
Speaking of players making the Pro Bowl based on name recognition and not performance, Justin Tucker getting the nod over Harrison Butker is egregious.
Butker finished the year drilling 31 of 33 kicks and all 37 extra points, and one of his missed kicks came because the football was deflated in New England (of course). Tucker, meanwhile, only made 86% of his kicks and missed an extra point.
Take the Bengals game, for example, in which Butker made 19 consecutive points for the Chiefs to put the game away. He's as reliable as any kicker in the NFL and should have been named a Pro Bowler.
The Chiefs' red-zone woes are alleviated by Butker's remarkable consistency. Can you imagine where this team would be without such an automatic kicker?
Brett Veach has interesting decisions to face with Butker and punter Tommy Townsend this offseason. I hope they stick around, because at least in Butker's case, he's as dangerous a weapon on special teams as there is in the NFL.
