With the Pro Bowl yesterday and looking at the players who did make it, you have to believe the Rams have a bright future in the game and there is no doubt that more than two Rams will make the game next season. Here are a few Rams players that could make the all-star game next season, providing that there is one.
Quarterback Sam Bradford was having by far the best season in his career before going down with an ACL injury, and had he not gotten hurt, he would have had a pretty good chance of playing in the game.
Taking a look at the other quarterbacks, Bradford definitely could have made it. By the end of the season Bradford was ranked 20th at his position on profootballfocus.com which was only four spots ahead of Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, four spots below Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, and five spots below Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
Those players all and great seasons this year, but there is no doubt that if Bradford can come back and play at the level that he was playing at, he can make his first Pro Bowl.
Running back Zac Stacy should also have a pretty good chance of making the big game with a full season under his belt.
Had Stacy played the entire season and gotten the same amount of carries that he had been getting you can approximate that he would have ended with around 1200 yards which would have put him in the top ten for running backs and ahead of Eddie Lacy and DeMarco Murray who were in the Pro Bowl.
Not only that but Stacy only finished eight spots below Alfred Morris on profootballfocus.com. Give Stacy a full season and he may be the next Rams running back to represent the Rams in Hawaii.
This one may be a bit of a long shot, but wide receiver Chris Givens may have a chance at making the Pro Bowl in 2015. There is no doubt that Bradford being gone hurt Givens’ development as well as other receivers on the team.
Making the Pro Bowl as a receiver is difficult as the position has a lot more competition, but if Givens can break out in 2014, he will definitely give himself a shot.
Givens will need to put 2013 behind him and move on to 2014. With Bradford back, Givens will have a good chance if he can improve from the player that he was his rookie season. If Givens plays like he did this season, he may just struggle for a roster spot instead.
