Pro Bowl Voting Update: Calvin Johnson, Ndamukong Suh Off To Early Leads

There is still a month left to vote for the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl, and the latest voting update looks very promising for Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Johnson has received the most votes (487,547) of any wide receiver, and he is third in the NFL in total votes (behind Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady). Suh didn't crack the top 10 overall, but he is the leading vote-getter at defensive tackle with 269,506.

Although only two Lions players are currently in position to be voted into the Pro Bowl, several others have at least cracked the top five at their position. From Dave Birkett:

Here are the Lions in top 5 in NFC Pro Bowl voting by position: QB Matthew Stafford (4th), WR Calvin Johnson (1st), OT Jeff Backus (3rd), C Dominic Raiola (2), DT Ndamukong Suh (1), CB Chris Houston (2), SS Amari Spievey (4), ST John Wendling (5), P Ryan Donahue (5), K Jason Hanson (4)

Out of all the players on that list not named Johnson or Suh, I think Houston is the most deserving of a spot in the Pro Bowl. The Lions pass defense has been very solid this season, and Houston has played a big part in its improvement.
