The Baltimore Ravens may be struggling on the field right about now, but their players are widely respected amongst fans all around the league. Six players received the most votes at their positions and will represent the team in the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl to be played the week before the Super Bowl in Hawaii.
Of course, if the Ravens end up playing for the Lombardi Trophy in New Orleans, then they will regrettably have to skip the free trip to the tropics in exchange for that other honor. However, as sweet as that would be, most people expect to see these guys, if they choose to accept the invitations, in Honolulu on Sunday, January 27, 2013.
FB Vonta Leach, OT Michael Oher, DT Haloti Ngata, SS Bernard Pollard, FS Ed Reed and KR Jacoby Jones were the leaders at their positions. Ironically, RB Ray Rice received the 10th most votes of any player in either conference, but will not start, as Houston Texans RB Arian Foster received the 3rd most votes and will start for the AFC.
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning received the most votes of any NFL player, followed by New England Patriots QB Tom Brady. The Ravens' six players were the second most of any team behind the Green Bay Packers (7) and just ahead of the San Francisco 49ers (5).
