At the most, the New York Jets will have a chance of being well-represented at Pro Bowl in Las Vegas in February.
This week, fan voting was completed and four Jets players were elected to lead their respective AFC positions from that portion. That’s one-third of all votes. Players and coaches also get votes.
These are the four Jets who led their positions in AFC, and seem one step closer to the Pro Bowl.

DT Quinnen Williams
ST Justin Hardee
LS Thomas Hennessy
Hennessy was the only one of those four to win more votes than any other. Hennessy came in third place overall. Jets fans deserve a round of applause because they showed support for Hennessy’s long snapper.
Three other Jets were among the top five AFC at their positions in the AFC: LB C.J. Mosley (3rd), S Lamarcus Joyner (fourth), and KR Bradxton Berrios (4th).
The Pro Bowl rosters will be revealed on Wednesday. But the NFL was able to reveal the Pro Bowl’s first two participants Monday night. These are Aaron Donald, a Rams defensive tackle, and Jaire Alex Alexander, a Packers cornerback.
