Fred Jackson and Andy Levitre have been recognized by another online outlet for their performances through the first half of the season.
ProFootballFocus has named Jackson and Levitre to their Midseason All-Pro team. Jackson, who through their own statistical analysis ranks as the most elusive back in football was a unanimous choice, while Levitre was also named despite splitting time at left tackle the past two games. Here’s what they wrote about each of them.
Running Backs: Fred Jackson (Buf)
Jackson was a unanimous choice which is hardly surprising since he’s the most elusive back in the league. The second team choice was rather harder, with Adrian Peterson narrowly beating out both Matt Forte and Lesean McCoy. They can both feel hard done by given the levels of their performance.
Offensive Guards: Andy Levitre (Buf) and Marshal Yanda (Bal)
The biggest threat to Levitre’s status as 2011’s top guard may be Buffalo being forced to use him at left tackle. The less time he spends there, the more time the competition have to catch up on him. Yanda and Sitton are just that bit better than a strong group of right guards, led by Brian Waters and Jahri Evans.
