Is Joe McKnight a Pro Bowl KR?

I was taking a look at the Kick Return statistics on Yahoo Sports and was absolutely stunned by what I saw.

Joe McKnight: the same player who couldn't wasn't in good enough shape to get through training camp without vomiting, the same player who the Jets kept over Danny Woodcock and allowed to get picked up by the Patriots, the same RB who didn't even touch the ball until the final game of the 2010 season - leads the NFL in numerous KR categories.

In just 4 games, on only 13 returns, he leads the league in KR Yards with 520 - Brandon Banks is in 2nd with 462.

He leads the league in yards per KR with 40.0 - remove that 107-yd return TD and it's still 34.4 per return.  The 2nd best in the AFC is Antonio Brown with 29.4.

The 107-yards return TD is the 2nd longest in the league, and the longest in the AFC.

I am absolutely astounded by how dominant he's been in the return game in only 4 games.

But here is the problem:  He has barely any stats in the PR game, something which may have cost Brad Smith the Pro Bowl nod last year in favor of Marc Mariani (who is also playing well in the KR/PR game this year)

What do you think? Is McKnight really a Pro Bowler after just 4 games?
