2011 NFL Pro Bowl Voting: Adrian Peterson Among Overall Vote Leaders

With just one week to go in the voting for the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl, Minnesota Vikings' running back Adrian Peterson has compiled the fourth-highest vote total in the entire National Football League, and the highest total for any player that is not a running back.

↵

As things stand now, Peterson has amassed 736,603 votes, putting him behind only Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback Michael Vick, New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady, and Indianapolis Colts' quarterback Peyton Manning.

↵

While there are many Vikings in the mix at their positions, currently only two other Vikings other than Peterson are currently leading at their respective positions. Those players are guard Steve Hutchinson, who has 158,204 votes to lead all NFC guards, and special teams ace Heath Farwell, who leads all NFC special teams candidates with 136,108 votes.

↵

Voting for the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl will run through the end of Monday night's game between the Vikings and the Chicago Bears, and the rosters will be announced on Tuesday, December 28th.
