Default Wesley Woodyard on his way to the Pro Bowl?

I don't see an OLB outside of Von Miller in the AFC that would go over him that has the kind of combination of stats like this

We could see 2 Bronco OLBs elected pro bowl this year. (of course they won't be playing in it because we will be in the SB )

Quote:
Tackles: 88
Sacks: 3 (2nd in 4-3 OLBs, Von obv. 1)
FF: 1
TFL: 6
INTs: 3 (leads all OLBs)
He has impressive stats, but most of all watching him I feel like hes playing at a Pro Bowl level. Good thing we got him re-signed to a 2 year deal this off-season, lets hope we can extend that deal when the time is right and keep him in Denver.

With the LB play, I think the broncos LB coach (Rich Smith?) is going to get more interest as a d-coordinator around the league. The broncos denied him an interview last year. If Del Rio leaves, I think the broncos hire Smith for the job.

Not trying to hate but he is up against 3-4 OLBs as well.

I'll never understand that. 3-4 OLBs are basically just 4-3 DEs. That's who they should be competing against.

Too many idiots nationwide that probably still don't know who he is, unfortunately.

He should go in my opinion, but his complete lack of name recognition is going to hurt him.

This! I hate to say it but James Harrison or a Bart Scott will get votes based on popularity ahead of him. I think he and Chris Harris have been lights out for us.

The Pro Bowl is nothing but a popularity/name recognition contest. The coaches know what he has accomplished, though...

3-4 OLBs get more flashy plays and more face time so they'll definitely dominate. 4-3 OLBs are an afterthought.

Plenty more Broncos are among the top-five at their respective positions in the AFC, including outside linebackers Von Miller and Wesley Woodyard, who are one and two among AFC vote-getters.

Woodyard won't go to the pro-bowl, it is nothing but a pure popularity contest filled with East-coast bias and haters and more importantly it would interfere with his availability for the Super Bowl - I know Woodyard is enough of a team guy to forego a free trip to Hawaii to play in the annual back-patting scrum in order to play in the Super Bowl.

and why waste any time at all doing a contract for Miller. This offseason, just get it done. The guy will have more then proven himself his 1st 2 years. Pay the man, pay him well, get it DONE.

Him and Chris Harris were both undrafted free agents... there are some others on the team as well.

The last time I remember getting this much production out of UDFAs and low-rounders was the year we won our first Super Bowl.

I voted WW for the Pro Bowl... I think he's certainly performing at a Pro Bowl level.

Matt Prater, Britton Colquitt (I hear he has the position locked up), Mitch Unrein, Matt Willis, Tony Carter...
