Seven Cowboys Named to Pro Bowl

Seven members of the Dallas Cowboys were selected to represent the NFC in the 2023 Pro Bowl. Among the seven players chosen, four are starters, and two are first-time selections. Here is the complete list of Cowboys Pro Bowl representatives:

CB Trevon Diggs, Starter: This is Diggs’ second consecutive Pro Bowl selection and second overall. Diggs is the first Cowboys cornerback to be selected to back-to-back Pro Bowls since Deion Sanders.

OLB Micah Parsons, Starter: This is the second selection for Parsons, making him the first defensive player in franchise history and just the third in NFL history to be named to a Pro Bowl roster in each of his first two seasons.

OG Zack Martin, Starter: This is the veteran Martin’s eighth Pro Bowl selection, second all-time among Cowboys offensive linemen behind only the great Larry Allen (1994-2005).

RT Kevontae Turpin, Starter: The 2022 USFL MVP had a strong preseason to win the punt and kickoff return jobs on his way to earning his first Pro Bowl selection. While Turpin did not have a return touchdown on the season, he was the only player in the NFL this season to have both a punt and a kickoff return of more than 50 yards.

WR CeeDee Lamb: This is Lamb’s second Pro Bowl selection after being added as an alternate in 2022. Lamb has had back-to-back 1,000-yard receiving seasons.

RB Tony Pollard: This is Pollard’s first Pro Bowl selection. Despite only starting three games this season, Pollard is closing in on 1,000 yards rushing while adding another 310 yards receiving.

DE Demarcus Lawrence: Lawrence returns to the Pro Bowl for the first time since 2018. Despite only six sacks on the season, Lawrence finds his way back to the Pro Bowl as a reward for his outstanding all-around play.

The traditional exhibition game that has always been the keystone event of the Pro Bowl festivities has been replaced by an array of skills competition and an AFC versus NFC flag football game in what has been rebranded as the Pro Bowl Games.
