The fan voting for the NFL Pro Bowl ends today at midnight, so it’s your last chance to put the players you feel worthy into the NFL’s all-star game. There are several Patriots worthy of your vote. Here’s my list of Pro Bowl-worthy Patriots:
- QB Tom Brady – Brady has passed for 4,593 yards, 36 touchdowns, and 11 picks while leading the Pats to an 11-3 record.
- G Brian Waters - Waters has started every game at right guard despite not spending training camp with the team. He’s been the Pats’ most consistent offensive lineman.
- WR Wes Welker – Welker leads the NFL in receiving yards (1,380) and receptions (104) while reaching the end zone 9 times.
- TE Rob Gronkowski - Gronk has 75 receptions for 1,141 and an NFL-leading 15 touchdown receptions. He also has one rushing touchdown.
- DE Andre Carter – Carter may be lost for the season, but his 52 tackles and team-leading 10 sacks helped give the Pats a pass rushing threat.
- DT Vince Wilfork – Wilfork’s played more snaps this year than any year of his career, and his play hasn’t dipped a bit. Big Vince has 46 tackles, 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and 2 unforgettable interceptions.
