Raiders Charles Woodson leading safety in Pro Bowl voting, one week left to vote

There is just one week left to vote on who will make the Pro Bowl for the 2015 season. And Charles Woodson is still the top voted safety. Woodson's lead is a commanding one, nearly doubling up the next strong safety in the voting, Kam Chancellor.

Woodson currently has 152,908 Pro Bowl votes while Chancellor -- a Pro Bowler the past two seasons -- has 86,870 votes.

This isn't just a situation where people are wowed that a 39-year-old is performing at a high level in the NFL. Woodson has the numbers to back up his nod. He added a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries to his 2015 stat total last week and is currently second in the NFL in takeaways (7) and third in interceptions (5). Not that it matters, but he has done this since suffering a dislocated shoulder in the season opener.

Still second in the voting at the full back position is Marcel Reece. Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert leads vote getters at the position.

Woodson and Reece are the only two Raiders in the top two at their position in the voting.

Other Raiders in the top ten in votes at their position:

QB  Derek Carr (6th)
WR  Amari Cooper (6th)
C Rodney Hudson (7th)
DE  Khalil Mack (6th)
K Sebastian Janikowski (8th)
P Marquette King (6th)
ST  Taiwan Jones (5th)

Fan voting for the 2016 Pro Bowl will continue until Tuesday, December 15. The Pro Bowl players will be announced on Tuesday, December 22 live on NFL Network.

Players will later be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft, which will air on ESPN2 on Wednesday, January 27.

The Pro Bowl will remain "unconferenced," with several key playing rules changed. Players will be selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players and later assigned to Pro Bowl teams via a fantasy football-style draft.

The Pro Bowl players 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 eligible for the Pro Bowl Draft. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 18.

The 2016 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 31, 2016 and televised live on ESPN from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
