Overall, there is a ton of Notre Dame talent in the NFL, and here, we take a look at four current NFL players from Notre Dame who could be in for their first Pro Bowl nod in 2021.
Notre Dame Football: 4 potential first-time NFL Pro Bowlers in 2021
Mike McGlinchey, San Francisco 49ers
We start our list with Mike McGlinchey, a player who dominated during his time with the Notre Dame Football program. The big fella was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, landing with the San Francisco 49ers, and playing a big role in them making it to the Super Bowl during his second season.
In 2021, McGlinchey will be a part of an offensive line that is trying to get the 49ers back on track. It was a terrible season for them in 2020, but they have revamped the roster, and in McGlinchey, they have a player who is now a veteran, and ready to make his first Pro Bowl.
In his three seasons with the team, McGlinchey has missed only four games and started all 16 games for the 49ers last year. He is in for his best season as a pro, and it would not be surprising if he got his first Pro Bowl nod.
