Jamaal Charles and Six Other Kansas City Chiefs Lead Pro Bowl Voting


There are only three weeks to vote for 2014 NFL Pro Bowlers, and if the voting ended today there would be seven Kansas City Chiefs on the roster. Jamaal Charles – who is fourth in the NFL in total votes – Branden Albert, Jeff Allen, Dontari Poe, Tamba Hali, Eric Berry, and Dustin Colquitt are each in the top two of their positions if the fan voting.

If this holds true, it would give the Chiefs at least one more Pro Bowler than the six they had last season.

How the NFL is going about selecting Pro Bowlers this season is a little different than in the past, which makes the Chiefs seven players even more impressive. Instead of selecting a player from each conference, voters are asked to pick the best players at each position regardless of conference.

At the end of the voting and selection process, all the players will be put into a draft pool where team captains Jerry Rice and Barry Sanders will draft teams.

The even crazier thing about all of this is that the Chiefs could end up with even more players in the Pro Bowl.

One would have to think that once the player and coaches votes are also tallied, Kansas City could end up with as many as 10 Pro Bowlers. Derrick Johnson and Justin Houston would seem to be locks to be voted in by players and coaches, while Jon Asamoah, Anthony Sherman, and Brandon Flowers could all receive some level of consideration.

Needless to say, the Chiefs have a very good top end of the roster.
