The Buffalo Bills are coming off their second playoff appearance in three years and appear to be solidifying a spot as an AFC contender. A solid offseason that saw them add Stefon Diggs while Tom Brady departed the New England Patriots bodes well for their hopes.

The Bills' young roster of emerging stars will be looking for increased recognition in 2020. It was difficult to narrow it down to just three players, but here are the Bills that could make their first Pro Bowl in 2020.

1. Stefon Diggs, WR

In one of the shocking moves of the offseason, the Bills acquired Stefon Diggs from the Minnesota Vikings for three draft picks, including a first-rounder. Surprisingly, Diggs has never made a Pro Bowl team despite back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons, making him a top candidate to earn the honor for the first time in 2020. Diggs is regarded as an elite wide receiver and will be Josh Allen's No. 1 target in 2020. If he can score double-digit receiving touchdowns for the first time in his career, a Pro Bowl appearance is not out of the question.

2. Dion Dawkins, LT

Dion Dawkins has been the Bills' starter at left tackle since 2017 and has made 42 consecutive starts for the team (including the postseason). A reliable and talented offensive lineman, Dawkins has been an above-average tackle for the last two seasons according to Pro Football Focus, and he's building a reputation as one of the best young tackles in football. If he keeps up his production in his fourth season, a Pro Bowl appearance could be in the cards.

3. Jordan Poyer, S

The vaunted Bills defense saw linebacker Tre'Davious White and cornerback Tremaine Edmunds make the Pro Bowl in 2019, but safety Jordan Poyer missed out despite leading the team with 71 solo tackles. Poyer was fantastic last year, posting 107 combined tackles, 3 forced fumbles and 2 interceptions. A ball-hawking safety with the ability to make plays in the open field and in coverage, Poyer is everything a coach would want in a veteran strong safety. Perhaps he'll finally be rewarded with a Pro Bowl appearance in 2020.
