I'd love to see it happen, but like someone already said, Hunter would have to lead the NFC in interceptions or be close to the top to get serious consideration as a first year starter.
Maybe Pete will flourish with offenses looking his way, I do believe he has a good shot at leading the team in thefts, but it's hard to make your first Pro Bowl without an utterly dominating campaign.

The Pro Bowl is a popularity contest, so there's something wrong with the system regardless, IMO.
It's nice to see Cowboys selected, but when it comes to determining which players were the best at their positions, I'll refer to the All-Pro team long before considering Pro Bowlers.
Nothing's perfect, but the All-Pro team is closer to the mark than the Pro Bowl teams are.
As for who should make the trip to Hawaii.
LT Flozell Adams - Will emerge as a force under Parcells and Warhop
LG Larry Allen - A lock as long as his name is on the ballet
WR Keyshawn Johnson - If he leads the team in catches, a strong candidate
TE Jason Witten - Should become one of the few complete TEs in NFL this year
DT La'Roi Glover - Continued production and rep make him a lock
SS Roy Williams - The one player the AFC doesn't want in the exhibition
CB Terence Newman - Nearly made it as a rookie and the Eagles vets are gone
LB Dat Nguyen - Steady production with a few more big plays will do the job
