Five Ravens Lead Pro Bowl Voting

Five players on the Baltimore Ravens lead their respective positions in current Pro Bowl voting. That should be all the motivation any Ravens fan would need to head on over to NFL.com to place your vote to keep these guys in first place and earn starting positions for the AFC in Hawaii next February.

The Ravens leading their positions are Ray Lewis (ILB), Ed Reed (FS), Haloti Ngata (DT), LeRon McClain (FB) and Michael Oher (LT). Lewis Reed and McClain are all repeaters as leaders at their spots. Ngata played last year but did not finish first in the voting. The big surprise this season is Oher at left tackle as he was a rookie right tackle last year and didn't move over to protect QB Joe Flacco's "blind side" until this season. I guess name recognition really helps, huh?
