Patriots Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski Lead NFL Pro Bowl Voting

New, comments

A number of Patriots are at the top of the Pro Bowl voting.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is currently 1st in the NFL in Pro Bowl votes, and it's not even close. Tight end Rob Gronkowski ranks 6th.

The following Patriots rank in the top two of their positions:

Quarterback Tom Brady

Tight end Rob Gronkowski

Tackle Sebastian Vollmer

Center David Andrews (!!!!)

Defensive end Chandler Jones

Outside linebacker Jamie Collins

Punter Ryan Allen

Kicker Stephen Gostkowski

Returner Danny Amendola

Special teamer Matthew Slater

The fact that Andrews ranks second in tackles is absolutely a testament to the New England voters (by the way, you can stuff the ballot here) since Andrews was benched.

Julian Edelman ranked 8th for wide receivers, Marcus Cannon ranked 8th for tackles, Alan Branch ranked 10th for defensive tackles, Dont'a Hightower ranked 7th for outside linebackers, Malcolm Butler ranked 8th for cornerbacks, Patrick Chung ranked 9th for strong safeties, and Devin McCourty ranked 5th for free safeties.

Any egregious exclusions that you can think of? The Patriots are at the top of nearly every position, other than running back (Dioooooon!) and guard. That's not a bad place to be.
