Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, defensive end Jared Allen and kick returner Percy Harvin have been named to Pro Football Weekly's midseason All-Pro team. The offensive, defensive and special team selections were voted on by editors at the publication and Peterson and Harvin were among seven unanimous selections. 

Peterson is tied for third in the NFL with the Rams' Steven Jackson 784 yards rushing on 163 carries. Peterson also has nine rushing TDs, putting him third in the NFL behind Jacksonville's Maurice Jones-Drew (11) and Atlanta's Michael Turner (10).

Allen is tied for the league lead with Denver's Elvis Dumervil with 10.5 sacks. Harvin, meanwhile, has been a standout on kick returns, despite the fact he did not handle that role in college. Harvin is averaging 30.7 yards on 28 returns to rank near the top of the league. He also has two touchdowns.

Another unanimous selection was former Vikings safety Darren Sharper, who is now with the Saints and is tied for the league lead with seven interceptions.
