PFF: Leach, Jones, Scobee are All-Pro
By Paul Kuharsky
Pro Football Focus isn’t gospel, but it has a unique way of looking at things.
Its midseason all-pro team includes three players from the AFC South: Texans fullback Vonta Leach, Titans defensive tackle Jason Jones and Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee.
Perhaps even more interesting were some of the names that popped up as runners-up. It is no surprise to see Peyton Manning or Andre Johnson or even Rob Bironas there -- they’d often be on the team, so a near miss is understandable.
Four other second teamers are more of a surprise: Austin Collie is the second slot receiver, Wade Smith is the second left guard, Chris Myers is the second center and Chris Hope is the second strong safety.
Two interior Texans linemen are a nice indication about the team’s success with Arian Foster and inside protection of Matt Schaub.
