Two Kansas City Chiefs players — tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Mecole Hardman — are currently leading AFC Pro Bowl voting at their positions. Hardman is leading the AFC voting as a return specialist.

Patrick Mahomes is second in overall votes — trailing Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson — but since the two quarterbacks play in the same conference, Jackson is currently leading AFC quarterbacks in the voting.

Kelce, Mahomes and four other Chiefs players were voted to the Pro Bowl roster in 2018: offensive tackle Eric Fisher, linebacker Dee Ford, wide receiver Tyreek Hill and fullback Anthony Sherman. Mahomes was named the game’s offensive MVP, but let’s be real: Sherman deserved the honor.

In addition to leading the NFC voting for quarterbacks, Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks is third in the overall voting. Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is fourth. Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey rounds out the top five vote-getters.

Fans are voting for young players. Four of the five players leading in the voting are under 25. Of the 38 players leading their conference at their position, seven — including Hardman — are first or -second-year players.

Two of the teams among those with the league’s best records — the Ravens and San Francisco 49ers — have the most votes so far. The Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and Vikings fill out the top five.

Voting for the 2020 Pro Bowl presented by Verizon will continue online (and on web-enabled mobile phones) at NFL.com/ProBowlVote (hint, hint) until Thursday, December 12.

Starting on November 28, fans will also be able to vote through Twitter by tweeting a player’s first and last name (or Twitter handle) and the #ProBowlVote hashtag. Twitter votes will added to those made at NFL.com — but please note: tweets with hanging chads will be disqualified.

The opening Pro Bowl roster will be announced on Tuesday, December 17 at 7 p.m. Arrowhead Time.
