Dockett's pick helps Pro Bowl chances

By Mike Sando

SAN FRANCISCO -- Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett deserves strong consideration for the Pro Bowl this season.

The play he just made against the 49ers -- batting Alex Smith's pass at the line, then picking it off -- isn't an easy play for a defensive lineman.

Dockett has seven sacks this season. He has already hit Smith once in this game, knocking down the quarterback.
