Where five Ravens rank in Pro Bowl voting

12/19/2013

The Baltimore Ravens continue to have a disappointing turnout in the Pro Bowl voting. Only five players rank in the top 10 in the latest ballot results, which were released by the NFL on Wednesday.

The Pro Bowl players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. The voting for fans ends Dec. 26.

Here are the top five vote-getters for the Ravens:

Kicker: Justin Tucker is the hottest kicker in the league, but you wouldn't be able to tell by the voting. He is No. 6 with 78,869, which is more than 114,000 votes behind first-place Stephen Gostkowski from New England.

Fullback: Vonta Leach remained at No. 3 behind Carolina's Mike Tolbert and Cleveland's Chris Ogbonnaya. Leach has 152,043 votes despite having a significantly reduced role this season.

Offensive tackle: Michael Oher is No. 7 even though he isn't the best offensive tackle on the team (that's Eugene Monroe). Oher remains popular from his "Blind Side" days.

Outside linebacker: Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil, the Ravens' top two sack producers, are both in the top 10. Suggs remained No. 3 behind Kansas City's Tamba Hali and Indianapolis' Robert Mathis. Dumervil is No. 7 after not being among the top vote-getters last week.

NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Dec. 23-26. The Pro Bowl players will be announced on Dec. 27.
