2016 Pro Bowl voting update: Paul Posluszny and Telvin Smith featured for Jaguars

New, comments

The 2016 Pro Bowl voting is currently under way and the offense has zero candidates while there are two linebackers in the top-10 of voting.

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 Pro Bowl voting continues and the NFL has released an update of the top 10 overall vote-getters and the top 10 vote-getters at each position. The Jacksonville Jaguars don't have any players in the overall top 10, but they do have a number of players represented in the top 10 at each position, including ILB Paul Posluszny and OLB Telvin Smith.

There is one more week of voting, which you can do here. Fan voting is one-third of the voting process, along with the votes from the players and coaches. The final results will be announced on December 22 on NFL Network. They're doing the Pro Bowl draft again this year so it won't be AFC vs. NFC.

Here are updates at notable positions.

Linebacker

As mentioned above, Posluszny and Telvin are in the top 10 of their respective positions. I don't think either will make it without some of the starters missing the Pro Bowl, but it's good that both players are getting some recognition. They deserve it.

Wide receiver

Allen Robinson not in the top 10 is a tragedy. He's sixth in the NFL in yards, first among wide receivers in touchdowns and plays of 20+ yards, and has the best yards-per-catch average of any player with 35 or more receptions.

Quarterback

Blake Bortles has less of a case to be included in the top 10 than Robinson, but he's seventh in passing yards and third in touchdowns. His 24th-ranked 6.95 yards-per-attempt is low, however, and his 13 interceptions is the second-most in the league.
