Pro Bowl prospects for NFC West players

The Cardinals might have the best receivers in the league, but none has produced at a Pro Bowl level this season.

Larry Fitzgerald ranks among the leaders in receptions, but he has dropped a couple passes and made few big plays. His per-catch average is 10.8 yards, down from 14.9 last season. That's a huge drop.

A quick look at NFC West players with Pro Bowl credential so far this season, in my view (with Pro Bowl balloting now under way):
A few specialists from the NFC West are also enjoying strong seasons. Punters Donnie Jones, Andy Lee and Ben Graham have punted well. Seahawks kicker Olindo Mare leads the NFL in touchback percentage, although he hasn't made enough field goals for consideration.

Update: We've gotten some support for Darnell Dockett. The NFL is listing him as a defensive tackle. Thoughts?
