2012 NFL Pro Bowl: 5 Biggest Snubs

0 of 5

    Yesterday, the NFL announced its 2012 Pro Bowl rosters for both the AFC and NFC.

    Like any other year, there were some players who were very deserving of making either team, but failed to get selected.

    Here is this year's version of the five biggest snubs for the NFL Pro Bowl game, in no particular order.

Victor Cruz

1 of 5

    There aren't many more wide receivers that are more deserving of this honor in the NFC than New York's Victor Cruz.

    He had 1,358 receiving yards and eight touchdowns heading into the final week of this season.

    The Giants wideout should have made his first career Pro Bowl earlier tonight.

    Instead, he will have to wait another season.

London Fletcher

2 of 5

    It's amazing that Washington's London Fletcher has only made two Pro Bowls during his illustrious NFL career.

    This season, he was looking of his third straight appearance, but he came up just short.

    After leading the league in tackles with 163 for the year, there is no doubt that Fletcher should be joining the NFC in Hawaii in late January.

Brandon Flowers

3 of 5

    Why Brandon Flowers didn't make the AFC team has to be one of the biggest mysteries that surrounds this year's Pro Bowl.

    He was tied for third in the conference in interceptions with four and has been one of the driving forces behind a very solid KC secondary this season.

    One of the most underrated corners in the league will likely continue to hold that title for another season.

Aldon Smith

4 of 5

    Smith should have made his first career Pro Bowl in as many seasons in the league.

    Instead, he will have to wonder why he wasn't invited to take part in the NFL's all-star game.

    His 14 sacks were good enough for third in the NFC among outside linebackers this season.

Roddy White

5 of 5

    Normally, when you gain over 1,200 yards receiving and score eight touchdowns, you are nearly a lock to make the Pro Bowl.

    That wasn't the case this year with Falcons wideout Roddy White.

    He should have made it in considering how much of an impact that he has in the Atlanta passing game in '11.
