ALAMEDA, Calif. – Oakland Raiders T Trent Brown and C Rodney Hudson have been named to the 2020 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced Tuesday.
G Richie Incognito, FB Alec Ingold, RB Josh Jacobs and TE Darren Waller were named as alternates for the annual all-star game, scheduled to be played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla., on Jan. 26, 2020.
Brown earns his first selection to the Pro Bowl after starting in 11 contests in his first season with the Silver and Black and surrendering just one sack in 326 pass-blocking snaps, according to Pro Football Focus. Hudson, a three-time selection, has given up zero sacks or hits in 432 pass-blocking snaps, and is graded as the NFL's No. 1 center in pass-blocking situations by PFF. The two have combined to anchor one of the most dominant offensive line's in the league, giving up just 24 sacks on the season, a mark that is tied for fifth-fewest in the NFL, while also being one of just five teams league-wide to surrender zero sacks against four different opponents.
Among the alternates is Incognito, who has helped the offensive unit rank sixth in sacks allowed percentage this season (5.1 percent) after surrendering just one sack of his own in 432 pass-blocking snaps, per PFF. Incognito, along with rookie fullback Ingold, have also paved the way for the first 1,000-yard rookie rusher in Raiders history. Jacobs has run for 1,150 yards this season while also adding seven touchdowns. His 1,150 yards on the ground rank sixth in the NFL this year, first among rookies, and also rank sixth in Raiders lore among all single-season rushing performances. Jacobs set a rookie club record with five 100-yard performances on the ground in 2019 and also became the first rookie in franchise history to earn NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month honors, doing so twice (October and November). Waller, now in his first full season with the club, has posted career highs across the board in all major offensive categories and ranks second in the NFL among tight ends in receiving yards (1,001) and yards after catch (461), while ranking third in receptions (80). He became just the second tight end in club annals to surpass 1,000 receiving yards and 80 receptions in a single season, while also tying a team record for most 100-yard performances (four) among his position group.
