Tom Brady has been sensational this season, putting up numbers that have him as one of the favorites to win the league MVP this season. The Pro Bowl votes that have come in so far have made Tom Brady the leader of all quarterbacks in the league. But while Brady has been doing great this season, other players in different positions have pulled in more votes due to their own accomplishments. Let's look at how the Pro Bowl votes stack up right now.
First round of Pro Bowl voting: Tom Brady and others
As the votes stack up, there are some clear leaders in every category. The overall leader is running back Jonathan Taylor of the Indianapolis Colts, whose swashbuckling performance against the top-rated Buffalo Bills was worthy of being enshrined as one of the greatest performances on a football pitch. He leads overall with 81,087 votes.
Following closely behind him in second is the reason the Los Angeles Rams offense has been so impressive this season. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp comes in second overall with 80,673 votes in the Pro Bowl voting record. Both Jonathan Taylor and Cooper Kupp are currently the stats leaders in rushing and receiving respectively.
Coming in third is Travis Kelce, who has been a bright light in the otherwise misfiring Kansas City Chiefs offense. He has accumulated 79,910 votes.
Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, who has been the stats leader in sacks so far this season with 13, comes in fourth with 76,064 votes.
Rounding off the top five is cornerback Trevon Diggs of the Dallas Cowboys with 75,637 votes. Diggs leads the league with eight interceptions.
While Tom Brady is not in the top five, he does lead the way among all quarterbacks with 71,126 votes. His counterpart in the AFC is Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, who lags behind with 60,4443 votes. It says something about the enduring legacy of Tom Brady, who remains peerless in the most important position in football.
