Which Carolina Panthers players were given the biggest Pro Bowl snubs?

It comes as no surprise to anybody that the Pro Bowl system is flawed. It was once considered a real distinction for players. However, it is now nothing more than a popularity contest that has left some deserving Carolina Panthers roster members on the outside looking in.

This comes as no surprise. The Carolina Panthers are 4-10 and any individual accolades are going to be scarce when a team has this sort of record. But it’s hard to look at some certain individuals in particular and not feel they are more than worthy after standing out considerably throughout the campaign.

All this will be another chip on the shoulder of those who felt they should have been selected to the Pro Bowl. It might serve the Panthers well down the line and the organization can take some solace in the fact they’ve got a strong foundation from which to build a possible contender in the future.

Let’s take a look at the four Panthers players who were the biggest snubs from the 2020 Pro Bowl.

Taylor Moton – Carolina Panthers OT

Taylor Moton has enjoyed a fantastic campaign for the Panthers despite some less than stellar play around him on the offensive line once again. The right tackle is now regarded as one of the NFL’s best at the position and – at least for the most part – his protection has been flawless.

The former second-round pick has given up three sacks and two penalties so far this season from 902 snaps. Moton has an eye-catching 81.5 grade from Pro Football Focus to show for his efforts and this is sure to come with a large contract once competitive action concludes.

Whether that will be in Carolina or elsewhere remains to be seen. But the Panthers would be smart to keep the Western Michigan product around in their pursuit of becoming a playoff contender sooner rather than later.
