Pro Bowl voting 2012: Dolphins' Jake Long leads the way

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE

The superstar left tackle appears set for his fifth Pro Bowl in as many professional seasons, but he may not be the only Dolphins representative in Hawaii.

Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jake Long is the leader among offensive linemen in the early voting for this year's Pro Bowl, making him a safe choice for his fifth straight selection.

Omar Kelly of the Miami Sun Sentinel reports that Long's 133,326 votes are the most among all offensive linemen, besting fellow offensive tackle Ryan Kalil of the Minnesota Vikings. It would appear that the fans once again appreciate the skill and strength Long has brought to the Dolphins in his five pro seasons since he was picked second overall out of the University of Michigan.

Kelly also notes that Dolphins punter Brandon Fields is currently the top vote-getter in the AFC at his position with a solid 57,397 votes. That's only about 4,000 fewer than New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead, who is currently setting the pace in the NFC.

The Dolphins sent Long, defensive tackle Paul Soliai and wide receiver Brandon Marshall (now with the Chicago Bears) to the Pro Bowl last year. Marshall took home the MVP award after hauling in four touchdowns during the game.
