The NFL regular season has reached what could be considered the halfway point. With two months left to sort out postseason honors, there are several players who are on pace to potentially receive Pro Bowl recognition. Last year, 27 players were selected to their first Pro Bowl, and this year, one player who stands out is Etienne.
Etienne, a first-round draft choice by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021 under head coach Urban Meyer, had a challenging start to his NFL career. His rookie season was lost entirely due to a Lisfranc injury. However, in his second season, he showcased his impressive skills, accumulating over 1,500 total yards of offense and scoring five touchdowns while adapting to Doug Pederson's system.
Now, in the 2023 season, Etienne is proving his worth once again. Through eight games, he has already scored eight offensive touchdowns and has nearly matched his reception count from last year's 17 games. He is on pace for 1,239 rushing yards and 565 receiving yards, solidifying his position as a top contender for Pro Bowl recognition.
Currently, Etienne ranks fourth in rushing yards and third in rushing touchdowns, making him a force to be reckoned with on the field. His exceptional performance and consistent impact on the game make him a strong candidate for Pro Bowl selection.
While Etienne stands out, he is not the only player making a case for the Pro Bowl. Dolphins running backs Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane have also displayed outstanding performances throughout the season. Although neither has been selected to the Pro Bowl in the past, their contributions to one of the most dynamic offenses in football cannot be overlooked.
As the NFL regular season progresses, the race for Pro Bowl recognition heats up. Etienne, Mostert, Achane, and many others are vying for a spot among the league's elite players. Stay tuned as we continue to witness their incredible feats on the field and see who ultimately earns the honor of a Pro Bowl selection.
