One was expected, the other a pleasant surprise. Bishop McDevitt graduate LeSean McCoy is garnering comparisons to Hall of Famer Barry Sanders. McCoy was the leading vote getter from the fans to be on the NFC Pro Bowl roster and tonight it's official, he's on the team. Dover High grad John Kuhn returned to the Packers for less money than he could have made elsewhere. His decision to return to the Super Bowl Champions pays off with a roster spot as the fullback with the best players in the NFC.
A total of 15 players are selected between the Ravens, Steelers and Eagles. Here are the players from our local NFL teams plus Kuhn on the squad.
Ray Lewis, Safety Ed Reed, Outside Linebacker Terrell Suggs, Defensive Tackle Haloti Ngata, Running Back Ray Rice, Fullback Vonta Leach and Offensive Guard Marshal Yanda.
Steelers: Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Wide Receiver Mike Wallace, Offensive Center Maurkice Pouncey, Strong Safety Troy Polamalu and Kick Returner Antonio Brown.
Eagles: Defensive End Jason Babin, Running Back LeSean McCoy and Offensive Tackle Jason Peters
Packers: Fullback John Kuhn
