The Denver Broncos are loaded with talent, and many of the players should be in line to make the Pro Bowl in the 2021 NFL season.

The Denver Broncos have one of the most loaded rosters in the entire NFL, and I could make a case for about 25 different players who could make the Pro Bowl in the 2021 season.

At this point, the Pro Bowl is mostly a popularity contest, so a deserving player not making one doesn’t take away from their talents and performances.

However, it’s nice to see when a player does get the recognition he deserves, whether it be a Pro Bowl or an All-Pro.

The Denver Broncos have a plethora of players who could and should make the Pro Bowl, league bias aside.  If I were to list all of those players, we’d be here all night.

Instead, I’m going to take into consideration the NFL and East Coast bias that usually comes with Pro Bowl voting.  For example, Bryce Callahan was snubbed from the Pro Bowl last year even though he was one of the best corners in football.

I’d be willing to bet that if he was on the Chiefs, Patriots, or Bills, he’d have made the Pro Bowl.

It’s an unfortunate reality in the NFL, so my list of five Broncos who I think will make the Pro Bowl in 2021 is considering the NFL bias.

Five Denver Broncos Who Should Make 2021 Pro Bowl

1. Justin Simmons, Safety

As the best safety in football, and someone with a Pro Bowl and All-Pro nod, Simmons should be a lock for this year’s Pro Bowl.

Several months ago, Simmons reset the safety market with a massive contract extension worth $60 million, and he deserved every penny.

Simmons has been the best player on the Broncos for a few years now and has played every snap the past three years.

A true ironman, Simmons can do everything that is asked of him, and more.

He’s rangy, has exceptional ball skills, and is a sure-handed tackler.  He’s truly perfect for Vic Fangio’s defense.

Even further, the Denver Broncos will trot out the deepest and most talented secondary in Simmons’ time with the team, so that figures to elevate his play.

As of now, Simmons is on Ring of Fame pace.  If he can stack a few more Pro Bowls and continue his career in Denver, he’ll be a Ring of Famer shortly after he retires.

The Denver Broncos and all of us in Broncos Country are truly blessed to have a player like Justin Simmons on our side.

Justin Simmons will pick up right where he left off in 2019 and 2020 and make the Pro Bowl, with ease, in 2021.
