DeAndre Hopkins, Budda Baker Top Positions In Pro Bowl Voting

Murray, Peterson, Cole, Beachum all in top 10 at positions

There will not be a Pro Bowl this year, thanks to COVID, but there will still be Pro Bowl rosters and right now, there is still Pro Bowl voting. And as the Cardinals move back into the national view, winning games with plays like the Hail Murray, it shows in the voting.

DeAndre Hopkins, who leads the NFL in catches and yards, not only is the leading vote-getter among all wide receivers after the first tally, but the 127.039 votes he has collected are fifth-most in the NFL overall, behind Patrick Mahomes, Russell Wilson, Dalvin Cook and Travis Kelce.

Hopkins isn't the only one with a big start on the vote. Safety Budda Baker, who has shined in the Cardinals' national TV games, is the top vote-getter among strong safeties (coincidentally, leading right now No. 2 Tyrann Mathieu, his former teammate.)

The Cardinals have four other players in the top 10 at their respective positions:

  • Kyler Murray is fifth among quarterbacks (behind Mahomes, Wilson, Josh Allen and Aaron Rodgers);
  • Patrick Peterson is seventh among cornerbacks;
  • Mason Cole is seventh among centers;
  • Kelvin Beachum is fourth among tackles.

The latter two are just a bit surprising; D.J. Humphries has been a player that seemingly has stood out the most on the Cardinals' offensive line. At the same time, the inclusion of two offensive linemen at this point says something about the offensive work the Cards have done and the improvement of the line as a whole.

Fans can vote by going here, and the voting runs through Dec. 17.
