Peyton Manning was a shoe in for a Pro Bowl spot this year, and he led all players in the fan vote. Manning will be participating in his 13th career Pro Bowl. Demaryius Thomas is heading to his second straight Pro Bowl. Louis Vasquez, Matt Prater, and Julius Thomas all earned their first Pro Bowl nod.
In addition to the five that made the Pro Bowl team, eight additional Broncos were named alternates: Guard Zane Beadles, Special Teamer David Bruton, wide receiver Eric Decker, linebacker Von Miller, running back Knowshon Moreno, center Manny Ramirez, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and wide receiver Wes Welker.
