2012 AFC South Mid-Season All-Pro Awards: Reggie Wayne, And A Few Surprises

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Pro Football Focus has released its mid-season awards for the AFC South and for the entire NFL. Not surprisingly, Reggie Wayne is listed as the top WR both in the division and the NFL.

Pro Football Focus has released its mid-season awards for the AFC South and for the entire NFL. Not surprisingly, Reggie Wayne is listed as the top WR both in the division and the NFL. Praise for Wayne isn't a surprise based on the production, but it is a bit of a shock based on what people were expecting of him coming into the season.

33-years-old. Loss of some speed he once had. Rookie quarterback. If he had 50 catches for the entire season, people would have nodded and thought it a good job.

Results at midpoint: 54 catches, 757 yards, two touchdowns, 14 yards-per-catch (highest average yards-per-catch since 2008).

Reggie Wayne is the best WR in the AFC right now in terms of production. Period.

No other Colts player were listed as All-Pros.

When handing out awards within the division, the awards are pretty surprising. Reggie is the top receiver. Also listed are Jeff Linkenbach (OG), Mike McGlynn (OG), and Winston Justice (RT). These are the top players at their respective positions within the division!

Now, I'll be the first to admit that Linkenbach has played better than expected. McGlynn and Justice have been solid all year. But, the best in the AFC South? PFF explains:

Okay, so the Colts’ guards have played better than expected, but this selection owes a lot to the performance of the other guys in the division. Yep, I like to rain on parades.

Dwayne Allen was ranked as the top tight end in the division over Owen Daniels of the Texans.

Equally surprising was the listing of Kavell Conner as one of the top linebackers in the division, but not Jerrell Freeman.

No other Colts players were listed on defense. Joe Lefged got a nod as a special teams player.
