Muhammad Wilkerson said exactly what Jets fans had been thinking.

During his weekly radio appearance on WFAN on Tuesday, the star defensive end said there’s no doubt he should have been voted to the 2014 Pro Bowl.

“I should be playing in it,” said Wilkerson, who was named a first alternate.

It’s not surprising that the third-year defensive lineman believes he was snubbed: he put up 10.5 sacks and recorded 64 tackles this season and was named the Jets’ MVP by his teammates.

“I can’t do nothing about it,” Wilkerson said. “But I’m confident in myself. I played good enough this season to be there.”
