» Can Ryan Kelly earn his first Pro Bowl nod?
Ryan Kelly made a big jump to being considered one of the better centers in the entire National Football League in 2018, and was rewarded by being selected as a Pro Bowl alternate for the first time in his career. In the end, the Pouncey brothers, Maurkice (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Mike (Los Angeles Chargers) ended up playing for the AFC squad, however. But Kelly is clearly on the up-and-up, so can 2019 be the year he earns his first-career Pro Bowl selection? Kelly, who has allowed just one sack on 1,481 pass-blocking snaps in his three-year career, according to Pro Football Focus, hopes to earn that distinction by staying healthy all 16 games this season. After playing in every game his rookie year, Kelly has missed a combined 13 games the last two seasons with various injuries, including four games last year. If Kelly does earn a trip to the Pro Bowl, he’ll be the first Colts center to earn that honor since Jeff Saturday back in 2010.
