We're halfway home this NFL season. Here are the top performers, my halfway All-Pro team:
WR -- Brandon Marshall, Bears: He is tied for third, behind Green and James Jones, with seven touchdown catches and is proving to be a steal for the Bears.

FB -- Marcel Reece, Raiders: I hate conventional fullbacks who are really just extra guards. So my pick is Reese, who catches passes and can also block some.
LG -- Mike Iupati, 49ers: He is a road grader in the run game and has improved in pass protection.
RG -- Marshal Yanda, Ravens: He has bounced back from a so-so season for him in 2011 to play a high level.
RT -- Anthony Davis, 49ers: He doesn't get the acclaim of some of his teammates on the line, but he's been dominant at times.
K -- Blair Walsh, Vikings: This rookie has missed one field goal and he's second in touchbacks in the league.
E -- Cameron Wake, Dolphins: With the way the Dolphins choke off the run, it allows Wake to be a force coming off the edge.
T -- Randy Starks, Dolphins: He is a force inside, a big reason why the Dolphins are first in run defense.
E -- J.J. Watt, Texans: He's a 3-4 end, who has been a force against the run and getting pressure.
OLB -- Lance Briggs, Bears: He looks years younger the way he is playing.
SS -- Reshad Jones, Dolphins: Every time I watch the kid on tape, he's making plays. He's getting better and better.
KR -- Percy Harvin, Vikings: I could have put him on as a receiver, but he gets the nod as a returner.
