PFW names McKelvin midseason All-Pro

Posted by Chris Brown on November 6, 2012 – 12:57 pm

Pro Football Weekly has released its Midseason All-Pro team and Leodis McKelvin is on it.

McKelvin as named Pro Football Weekly’s Midseason All-Pro punt returner. The players chosen were selected by the PFW editors. McKelvin has led the league in punt return average for almost the entire season. He’s also third in kick return average. Here’s what PFW wrote about McKelvin.

PR Leodis McKelvin / Bills — Like Harvin, he has one return TD and had another nullified by penalty, the latter of which still went for 28 yards after the holding call was enforced. He rarely plays defense anymore, but has no fumbles on the season and six of his 13 returns have gone for 20 yards or longer.

Here’s the entire Pro Football Weekly Midseason All-Pro team. McKelvin is the only Bills representative.

2 Bills on Midseason All-Pro team

Posted by Chris Brown on November 10, 2011 – 10:03 am

Fred Jackson and Eric Wood appeared on the Pro Football Weekly Midseason All-Pro team earlier this week. Now two other Bills appear on another such listing.

George Wilson and Andy Levitre were two of the 25 players chosen for the Midseason All-Pro squad by CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco. Here’s what he wrote about each of them.

LG, Andy Levitre, Bills: He isn’t a household name, but he was outstanding before moving to left tackle the past two weeks.

SS, George Wilson, Bills: He might not be a household name like the guy in Pittsburgh with the long hair, but he has been better. This former receiver is a player.

Only the Raiders had more players selected with 3 and the Patriots and Giants were the only other clubs with 2 players on this list.
