Voting for the Pro Bowl will continue until December 15 before the final team is announced on December 22. The game is set to be played on January 31st at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
There are a handful of Buccaneers who could find themselves in the running for a Pro Bowl nomination, including defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. McCoy has 4.5 sacks this season, the most of any defensive tackle and fifth-most of any player in the league. He has been selected for the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons, though an injury prevented him from being able to participate last winter.
Doug Martin, a Pro Bowler in 2012, is also putting together a worthy season. He has 405 rushing yards on the season, which were tied for the second-most in the league heading into Week 6. Pro Football Focus has Martin graded as the league's best running back so far. Martin ran for more than 1,400 yards in 2012, his rookie season, to earn his first Pro Bowl nomination.
Despite leading the NFL in tackles per game last season, linebacker Lavonte David has yet to be named to the Pro Bowl. He's off to another hot start in 2015, leading the team in tackles once again.
Other Bucs who could aso warrent consideration include defensive end Jacquies Smith, who has four sacks, and Vincent Jackson, the Bucs' leading receiver, along with wide receiver Mike Evans, guards Logan Mankins and Ali Marpet and linebacker Kwon Alexander.
The season is less than halfway over, though, and there's plenty of football left to be played. Buccaneer fans are encouraged to vote early and often. Fan votes will account for one-third of the total ballot.
