Who has the best chance at a Pro Bowl Year? O-Line

Who has the best chance at a Pro Bowl Year? O-Line

Since we're emphasizing the run so much this year I feel one of our linemen should make the Pro Bowl this year. Who has the best chance? Staley is my choice.
I like our O-Line this year and for years to come but IMO Chilo Rachal is the only guy that will ever be a pro bowler from this current group of guys. Maybe Staley will sneak into 1 pro bowl, but I think Rachal starting next year, will be a guy who will go to Hawaii a few times.
lots of running tends to get guards in....i voted staley, which would require good pass blocking year out of him playing tackle, but if rachal went i wouldnt be suprised at all..

I think Eric Heitmann has a chance if our team plays well, although that may sound like I am channeling my inner MadDog

You mean Chilo will make the Pro Bowl next year, not this year?
Vernon Davis is my write-in. In a run first offense, I consider him another lineman.

I was going to list him to get a laugh. There's nothing funny about his blocking ability though, it's just that this thread is only for O-line.
That's why I wrote him in.

Let me digress. There are alot of LTs ahead of Staley.

Neither Baas or Wragge will get it.

Heitman has competion.

Chilo Rachal is still green.

Who knows is Snyder or Smith will end up at ROT (I like that name for a lineman).

Vernon was an alternate this year, will get some passes from whoever is the QB, and with the emphasis on running game will be asked to play pancake with linebackers alot.
out of the offensive line I would have to say Chilo will have the best chance of a probowl spot. He has looked pretty damn good this preseason.
Staley.

He looked awesome last week.
Not Baas that for sure

He needs work on pass protection.

This is true but I beleive his run blocking will get him some looks. As I said he has the best chance
rachal, staley, heitmann
Heitmann or Rachal.

Staley will not make it simply because there are too many name brands out there at LT.
