The 2023 Pro Bowl is over a year away, but the Broncos have some encouraging players who could make it when the new year begins.  Many teams have already begun to prepare for their 2023 season.  The Texans, Broncos, and Bears are all eliminated from playoff contention and surely have begun looking toward the future.

The Broncos are enduring what is their seventh straight season of not making the playoffs, and if the New York Jets are able to make it in this year, the Broncos will have the longest active playoff drought streak in the NFL.

The team is at rock bottom and needs to dig its way out of the mess.  One way they can do that is with young players.  Hitting on draft picks is one of the best things an NFL team can do as they are likely to become future cornerstones.

Denver has been able to hit on some of their draft picks over the last several years.  Guys like Courtland Sutton, Justin Simmons, Patrick Surtain, Quinn Meinerz, and Garett Bolles have all either made a Pro Bowl or look very poised to do so.

Obviously, that is not an exhaustive list, but the team does have other young players who are surely going to contribute in 2023.

Which players are near locks to make the Pro Bowl in 2023?

Broncos players who are locks to make the Pro Bowl in 2023

Patrick Surtain II, CB

Patrick Surtain II is the best cornerback in the NFL and right now is the best player on the Broncos.  Not only should he make a Pro Bowl this year, but he should be given a first-team All-Pro nod.

Next year won’t be any different, as the former Alabama product has quickly cemented himself as the game’s newest shutdown cornerback.  His intelligence, speed, and technique help make him the best in the league.

Denver is lucky to have Surtain and he’ll likely be given the richest cornerback contract in the history of the NFL next offseason.  The anchor of the secondary is the gold standard at his position.
