There has been a lot of debate about how much stock to put into Pro Football Focus based mostly on their rankings and grades of players this season.

You can take them with a grain of salt or you can be outraged that they've left somebody off a list, or bizarrely placed somebody undeserving on one.

PFF recently published their Pro Bowl roster and, well, probably didn't end any of the criticism.

Like, for example, the fact that Redskins left tackle Trent Williams or tight end Jordan Reed didn't make the cut.

However, with the bad comes the good, too, and PFF at least gives some credit to Bashaud Breeland, who shares the stage with corners Josh Norman (CAR), Chris Harris, Jr. (DEN), Ronald Darby (BUF), Johnathan Joseph (HOU), Patrick Peterson (ARI), Darius Slay (DET) and Adam Jones (CIN).

On the year, Breeland has 77 tackles  (four for a loss), two interceptions, 14 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He's made significant strides since his rookie year in 2014, matching his interception and forced fumble totals from last year through 13 games.

He's also stepped mightily in place of injured starting cornerback Chris Culliver, going toe-to-toe with each opponent's top wide receiver since facing the Giants nearly three weeks ago. 

"I'm just taking it day-to-day," Breeland said a couple weeks back. "Going through my preparations, just trying to do whatever I can to help the team win."

If he keeps it up, he might actually make the real Pro Bowl.
