Hakeem Nicks and 5 New York Giants Who Will Make the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl

The New York Giants have had a good run in terms of getting their team represented in the Pro Bowl over the last couple of seasons.

Unfortunately, it hasn't led to playoff appearances. But nonetheless, they still have several talented players who are very capable of making the Pro Bowl this season. 

One of which seems painfully obvious, but Hakeem Nicks emerged as one of the NFC's elite receivers in 2010 before missing three games due to a minor injury. Not getting those stats ultimately led to him missing out on the Pro Bowl and if he stays healthy this year, I see no reason why he won't make it.

I expect a breakout year in 2011. Last year could be considered a breakthrough year as he had 1,052 yards and 11 touchdowns; he will improve on those numbers as he and Eli Manning's chemistry continues to get better.

Prior to his injury, Nicks was leading all wide receivers and tied for the league lead with Antonio Gates with nine touchdowns; he was also in the top 10 in receptions and yards. Those are All-Pro type numbers.

If only he didn't suffer the injury.
