And number five will shock you (seriously)

The Pro Bowl is far from the best showcase of football at it’s finest. It’s a glorified two-hand-touch game played by guys who have spent the past few weeks falling out of true game shape. But that said, if you’re a die hard Aggie fan, you should have at least some passing interest, with four five Texas A&M Aggies slated to play in the game.

Mike Evans, WR, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Atlanta Falcons v Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Mike Evans posted career-highs in receiving yards (1,524), yards per game (95.3) and catch rate (62.3 percent) in 2018. That, along with his eight touchdowns got him to his second Pro Bowl in five seasons.

Myles Garrett, DE, Cleveland Browns

New York Jets v Cleveland Browns
After injuries held him to only 11 games in his rookie season, the 2017 #1 overall pick played in all 16 games for the Browns in 2018, tallying 13.5 sacks, only one behind fellow Aggie Von Miller and good enough for sixth in the NFL. That, along with the support of the Dawg Pound, got Garrett to the first Pro Bowl of his young career.

Jake Matthews, OT, Atlanta Falcons

Atlanta Falcons v Green Bay Packers
After being drafted by the Falcons in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Jake Matthews has played in every game but one over the past five seasons. He had a career low in penalties this season (3) and only allowed 2.5 sacks in 2018.

Von Miller, LB, Denver Broncos

Los Angeles Chargers v Denver Broncos
Von Miller’s 14.5 sacks was fourth best in the NFL, and the second-highest total of his career. This is his seventh Pro Bowl in eight seasons with the Broncos.
