Foster, Leach earn All-Pro honors

Posted by Nick Scurfield on January 24, 2011 – 3:15 pm

Texans running back Arian Foster and fullback Vonta Leach have been named first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press, one of the highest individual honors in professional football.

Foster, the league rushing champ, and Leach, Foster’s lead blocker, are both first-time All-Pros. The team is selected by a national panel of 50 media members who cover the NFL.

The Texans are one of only two teams, along with the New England Patriots, to have two offensive players on the All-Pro Team. Running backs coach Chick Harris is the only position coach in the league with two players on the team.

Foster, Leach and Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson also were selected to play in the Pro Bowl, although Johnson pulled out of the game because of an ankle injury. Foster and Johnson were named to the 2010 Sporting News All-Pro Team, and Foster was named to the Pro Football Weekly/PFWA All-Pro Team.

    While Vonta Leach is a Pro Bowl full back and deservingly so, I feel he would be a tremendous line backer or nose guard. He has the instinct, speed and attitude of a “run stuffer” and the soft hands of a receiver. Casey has the size and speed to take Leach’s place and right now is wasted talent as a back up. I’l bet Coach Phillips would love to have him on defense. What do you think?

    You’re on to something- Leach was an all-state linebacker/running back in high school North Carolina, and he played linebacker for his first two seasons at East Carolina. He’s told me in the past that he views linebacker and fullback as essentially the same positions, just that one’s on offense and one’s on defense. But there’s no way he’s switching positions. He’s at the top of his game as a fullback and playing as well as any FB in the league.
