Kentucky Wildcats in the NFL Week 11: Woodyard, Cobb Making Case for Pro Bowl

0 of 7

    It was a very good week for UK alumni in the NFL, but Wesley Woodyard and Randall Cobb have begun to separate themselves from the rest of the league at their respective positions. They have gone from solid contributors to bona fide stars and give the Big Blue Nation some pretty exciting NFL highlights to watch every Sunday.

    If Woodyard keeps tearing up opposing offenses and Cobb keeps finding the end zone, then both players could very well make their first Pro Bowl team appearance at the end of the season,

Wesley Woodyard, Denver Broncos

1 of 7

    vs. San Diego Chargers

    8 tackles, 1 PD, 1 FR, 1 INT

    For anyone who thought DJ Williams' return to the Broncos would mean a decrease in Woodyard's numbers (myself included), that has definitely not been the case.

    In addition to once again leading the team in tackling (which he seems to do on a weekly basis), Woodyard intercepted his third pass of the season and recovered a fumble in the Denver Broncos' 30-23 win over the San Diego Chargers.
