The problem is, he only really started to pick up the pace recently. He was just having a good season as a one dimensional player (run defender) up until recently.
If he can continue to improve his play, then I could see him making the pro bowl next season, but the fact is he hasn't earned it this season.
That's a bit of an exaggeration, but his play and Coples' play today gives credibility to the last two drafts.
Defensive Ends: J.J. Watt (HST), Cameron Wake (MIA) and Muhammad Wilkerson (NYJ)
These guys look nailed on for me. Our top-ranked 4-3 defensive end and our two top-ranked 3-4 defensive ends. Chandler Jones at one point was a guy I thought could be in contention, but injury and inconsistent performance derailed that. Instead, the dominant pass rusher Wake and run defender Wilkerson are joined by the total package that is J.J. Watt. Easy.
