With just one week of fan voting remaining, there haven’t been any changes in the number of Broncos in the top five at their respective positions for the AFC squad at the 2010 Pro Bowl.
The team has four players in the top five, and of those, one is tops at his position, two are in second and one is in third.
Champ Bailey remains the highest vote-getter among cornerbacks in the AFC. His teammate in the secondary, Brian Dawkins, is No. 2 at the strong safety position behind Pittsburgh’s Troy Polamalu. Elvis Dumervil is second at outside linebacker behind a Steelers player, as well — James Harrison. Eddie Royal rounds out the current list of Broncos in contention for the Pro Bowl, currently third at kick returner behind San Diego’s Darren Sproles and Cleveland’s Joshua Cribbs.
Fresh off his record-breaking day against the Indianapolis Colts, Brandon Marshall is not listed among the top five wide receivers in the AFC — Andre Johnson, Reggie Wayne, Randy Moss, Chad Ochocinco and Wes Welker are first through fifth, respectively, in the voting.
The first time the NFL sent out a Pro Bowl voting update, Ryan Clady, Matt Prater and D.J. Williams were fifth at their respective positions. They are not listed this time around.
So, Broncos fans, use this last week to vote as many times as you want for the Broncos you believe should head to Miami for the Pro Bowl. Remember, there is no limit to the number of times fans can submit a ballot.
Balloting for the 2010 Pro Bowl will conclude on Monday, December 21 following the conclusion of Monday Night Football. The teams will be announced at 2 p.m. MST Tuesday, Dec. 29 on a special NFL Total Access 2010 Pro Bowl Selection Show on NFL Network.
