Steelers Dominate In 2018 Pro Bowl Fan Voting

The 2018 Pro Bowl is still a few months away but the annual fan voting portion of the selection process ended on Friday. The votes have now all been tabulated and several Pittsburgh Steelers wound up being the top vote-getters at their respective positions.

For starters, Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell was the top vote-getter this year as he edged out New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown finished third overall in fan voting.

Steelers tackle Alejandro Villanueva, guard David DeCastro, center Maurkice Pouncey, inside linebacker Ryan Shazier and special teamer Tyler Matakevich were also all top vote-getters at their respective positions in this year’s fan voting.

As you can clearly see, the Steelers figure to have more than half a dozen players voted to the Pro Bowl this year and we all hope that none of them ultimately play in annual all-star game due to them needing to prepare for this year’s Super Bowl.

The 2018 Pro Bowl rosters will ultimately be announced exclusively on Tuesday, December 19 live on NFL Network’s Pro Bowl special “NFL Total Access: Pro Bowl Players Revealed” at 8:00 PM ET. Players for the game are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who will be selected to the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches cast their votes on Friday, December 15.

The 2018 Pro Bowl, which kicks off at 3:00 PM ET on Sunday, January 28, will be televised live from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC.

    Disappointed Heyward 4th at his position. Hope players& coaches vote correct this oversight.

  • Jaybird

    That’s a travesty. I know I voted several times for Cam !

  • 570toHero

    Yea really. Best player on our D, hands down. He’s in his prime right now. I expect Tuitt to progress even more, which is saying a lot since he is already a beast. But he will get even better. Those two along with the freakishly talented Watt with cause headaches of many a QB across the league for a while.

  • dany

    Sigh, Foster is about to be sandwiched between two pro bowlers and many times he’s better than either

  • Sam Clonch

    I probably gave him 300 votes myself. Hope you’re right.

  • Sam Clonch

    Ramon would probably tell you himself that Maurkice way better.

  • The Chin


  • Don

    He can take it out on the Pats

  • CountryClub

    Which QB in the AFC came in 2nd?

  • Kevin Schwartz

    Guessing Alex Smith.

  • Sam Clonch

    I might guess Rivers.

  • Jason Dock Dudley

    not even a contest

  • SteelersGeek4Lyfe

    That’s such garbage! Heyward is killing it this year, absolutely killing it

  • SoCal Steeler

    Disappointed Cam and Ben aren’t higher. Cam’s been a beast most of the year an Ben has been lights out lately. Both will pro be named anyhow with injuries but we really don’t want any of ouur guys playing i n that game, right?
    Would mean we were in the Super Bowl!

  • will

    Wow! Mel Kiper on draft day several years back said emphatically that Russell Wilson would be lucky to be a third string QB in the NFL if he got drafted at all!!!!!

  • Steve

    Fan voting is fine, but All Pro players, that are voted on by other players is what counts.

  • Steve

    How can you say that? Against the Jets Cam had a 39% completion rate and a terrible game. Cam has not had over 200 yards thrown in 3 games. Please research before making remarks.

  • Steve

    Tells you a lot about Mel Kiper – Don’t believe everything you read and hear.

  • Gyborg

    Best record in the league with a suspect secondary. There’s more killers in this team than just the killer b’s. They should get their recognition

  • Heywood Jablome

    Pretty sure he means Cam Heyward

  • Steve

    No – CAM NEWTON had a terrible game vrs the JETS.

  • John Noh

    If Ben is back next season I sure hope LevBell is too.

  • HiVul

    Lol dude no, he was talking about Cam Heyward in the OP

  • Alan Tman

    Well deserved, but Cam should be considered a defensive tackle.

  • Alan Tman

    Read what he said about LeVeon, and AB!!

  • Rocksolid20

    Who is more deserving than Boswell ?

  • Cullen James Riley

    Deshone Kizer for MVP.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Other than Brady I can’t name another QB I’d rather have than 7

  • J.

    People dont be disappointed that some players didn’t finish higher none of the Steelers are playing in the pro Bowl because we have a game the following week.

  • SoCal Steeler

    Huh? Yes, I was absolutely talking about Cam Heyward. I really couldn’t care less about other teams pro bowl votes unless of course they get more votes than a deserving Steeler.
