According to ESPN.com, 11 other Texans are in the top five at their respective positions.

Matt Schaub ranks fourth among AFC quarterbacks, a position where three players make the Pro Bowl roster. James Casey ranks second at fullback behind former Texan Vonta Leach, with only one roster spot up for grabs.

At tight end, where the top two vote-getters make the Pro Bowl, Owen Daniels ranks second behind New England’s Rob Gronkowski.

At tackle, where the top three make the Pro Bowl, Texans left tackle Duane Brown ranks fourth.

At guard, where the top three make it, Texans right guard Antoine Caldwell ranks third and left guard Wade Smith ranks fourth.

At center, where the top two make it, 2011 Pro Bowler Chris Myers ranks fifth.

At cornerback, where the top three make it, 2011 Pro Bowler Johnathan Joseph ranks fourth. Kareem Jackson, who’s tied for the AFC lead with four interceptions, ranks fifth.

At strong safety, which has two Pro Bowl roster spots per conference, Glover Quin ranks fifth. Linebacker Bryan Braman ranks second in the “special teamer” category, in which one player makes it each year.
