Pro Bowl fan voting ends in one week and five Seahawks currently rank in the top 10 at their positions.

Rookie punter Michael Dickson is the highest-ranked Seahawk so far, ranking first among NFC punters and second overall league-wide behind the Cleveland Browns’ Britton Colquitt.

Despite being the top-ranked linebacker by Pro Football Focus, Bobby Wagner comes in seventh-place among all inside linebackers on this list. The Panthers’ Luke Kuechly has received the most votes, followed by the Bears’ Roquan Smith, Cowboys’ Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith, and Bears’ Danny Trevathan to round out the top five.

“That one’s kind of disappointing,” 710 ESPN Seattle’s John Clayton said of Wagner’s result.

Frank Clark is sixth among defensive ends, with stiff competition from Texans’ J.J. Watt (currently in first place), Browns’ Myles Garrett and Vikings’ Danielle Hunter in the top three spots.

Linebacker Barkevious Mingo ranks sixth in special teams votes and wide receiver Tyler Lockett is eighth in returners.

In one of the more surprising results, quarterback Russell Wilson isn’t in the top 10 of all quarterbacks. Leading the pack (and all Pro Bowl voting) is Saints quarterback Drew Brees, currently in the midst of an MVP-caliber season.

Voting will remain open at until Thursday, December 13.
