2019 Pro Bowl snubs: Andrew Luck, Alvin Kamara among notable omissions

The announcement of Pro Bowl selections annually yields plenty of second-guessing about the players who missed the cut. 

A good number of worthy players made the AFC and NFC rosters on Tuesday night. There were also plenty of noteworthy exclusions.

Here are some of the biggest Pro Bowl snubs:

Andrew Luck, QB, Indianapolis Colts — Among a number of worthy NFL comeback player of the year candidates, Luck has the surprising Colts on the precipice of a playoff berth. After missing the entire 2017 season, Luck's return has been absolutely remarkable. He's currently ranked second in the NFL with 34 touchdown passes (trailing only Patrick Mahomes' incredible 45 TDs), and has thrown for 3,951 yards (tied with Philip Rivers for seventh-best in the league).

Nick Chubb, RB, Cleveland Browns — The Browns' 2018 draft haul has been a big reason for the team's return to prominence. First-rounders Baker Mayfield (not a Pro Bowler) and Denzel Ward (a Pro Bowler) have been outstanding. Chubb, who was selected early in the second round, didn't really get going until after the midseason trade of Carlos Hyde. Before that trade, Chubb maxed out at three carries a game. Since that trade, Chubb has rushed for 687 of his 860 yards, averaging 86 yards a game.

Alvin Kamara, RB, New Orleans Saints — The NFC's running back pool is loaded. Kamara was the odd man out after Todd Gurley, Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott were chosen for the Pro Bowl. Kamara's production has picked up after earning the offensive rookie of the year award last season. He's second only to Gurley for most combined rushing and receiving touchdowns (16, to Gurley's 21).
