The National Football League reports that Leigh Steinberg Client, Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes leads all players in voting for the 2021 Pro Bowl. Here’s what the NFL issued:

Kansas City quarterback PATRICK MAHOMES, with 206,525 votes, leads all players in balloting for the 2021 Pro Bowl presented by Verizon.

Seattle quarterback RUSSELL WILSON (203,444 votes) ranks second overall, while Minnesota running back DALVIN COOK (188,767 votes), Tennessee running back DERRICK HENRY (185,494) and Kansas City tight end TRAVIS KELCE (185,218 votes) round out the top five.

Two of the top five vote-getters – Mahomes and Cook – are age 25 while four first- or second-year players currently lead their conference in votes received at their respective positions.

The PITTSBURGH STEELERS lead all clubs in total votes received. The KANSAS CITY CHIEFS, SEATTLE SEAHAWKS, GREEN BAY PACKERS and BUFFALO BILLS round out the current top five.

Fan voting for the 2021 Pro Bowl presented by Verizon will continue online and on web-enabled mobile phones at NFL.com/ProBowlVote until Thursday, December 17. ​

Through the end of the voting period on December 17, fans will also be able to vote directly on Twitter. To cast such a vote, fans should tweet the first and last name of the player, the player’s official Twitter handle, or a hashtag including the player’s first and last name. All three of these methods must include the hashtag: #ProBowlVote. Voting via Twitter is in addition to the online ballot at NFL.com/ProBowlVote, which will be available throughout the entire voting period.

Roster selections 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. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 18.

The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its All-Star teams. It was also the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995. The roster reveal will be aired on NFL Network in late December.
