The New Orleans Saints have five players who were selected to the 2012 Pro Bowl roster.
Three of these players, Jahri Evans, Carl Nicks and Jimmy Graham, were elected as starters, and Drew Brees and Jermon Bushrod are both reserves.
There's no doubt that these five guys are among the best in the NFC, and in the entire league, but some got it just on their reputation and past performances.
There are many more players on the Saints that deserved to be voted into the Pro Bowl and others around the NFL as well.
The Saints are truly hoping that they will have zero representatives in the Pro Bowl because if any of their players are in Hawaii then that means they will not be playing in the Super Bowl in Indianapolis.
However, for now, the Saints will have five representatives in Hawaii for the 2012 Pro Bowl.
Let's look at each of these players individually and how well they have played in 2011.
