5. Marshawn Lynch, Seahawks: 443,533

6. Adrian Peterson, Vikings: 410,002

7. Jimmy Graham, Saints: 376,637

8. A.J. Green, Bengals: 368,708

9. LeSean McCoy, Eagles: 349,706

10. Dez Bryant, Cowboys: 345,850

The NFL also listed the top 2 vote getters at every position, none of which are Eagles. Chiefs fans seem to be doing the best job of stuffing the ballot boxes, as they have 7 players among the 38 players in the top 2 at their position.

In addition to McCoy, the Eagles have several players who are worthy of Pro Bowl consideration:

• DeSean Jackson, WR: 3rd in the NFL with 985 receiving yards.

• Evan Mathis, OG: The best player in the history of the NFL, according to ProFootballFocus.

• Donnie Jones, P: The actual best player in the history of the NFL.

• Nick Foles, QB: If he keeps putting up the kind of numbers he has put up so far, he's a no-brainer, even with a shorter season than the rest of the NFL's QBs.

• Fletcher Cox, DE: He'll never make it, because he doesn't have eye-popping statistics, but he is playing at a Pro Bowl level. Ditto that for Cedric Thornton.

• Brandon Boykin, STs: He may be the best gunner in the NFL.
