With just over a month of voting time remaining for the Pro Bowl, five Ravens players lead at their respective spots in the AFC.
Linebacker Ray Lewis, safety Ed Reed, defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, special teams standout Brendon Ayanbadejo, and right tackle Michael Oher lead at their given positions through Nov. 14.
The 36-year-old Lewis has been named to 12 Pro Bowls and has only missed out on the honor in three of his 15 full seasons in the NFL (1996, 2002, and 2005). Reed has seven Pro Bowl selections while the 27-year-old Ngata has been selected in each of the last two seasons.
Ayanbadejo, a three-time selection as a special teams player, has not been named to the team since 2008 as he comes off two injury-plagued seasons.
Oher’s position in the voting isn’t surprising given his high-profile reputation from “The Blind Side” book and motion picture, but many would argue his play after being shifted back to right tackle in the preseason has not been deserving of Pro Bowl consideration.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, in the midst of one of the greatest seasons ever by a quarterback, leads all players in voting through Nov. 14.
The Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 29.
