Christian McCaffrey, Tyreek Hill, and Fred Warner were unanimous selections for the team, receiving first-team votes from all 50 members of a nationwide panel of media members who regularly cover the league. Notable snubs from the Pro Bowl, such as Buccaneers safety Antoine Winfield Jr., Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, and Jets linebacker Quincy Williams, still managed to earn All-Pro distinction.

Lamar Jackson was selected for the second time, missing a unanimous selection by five votes. Defensive players Aaron Donald and Zack Martin both earned their sixth and seventh selections, respectively. A total of 14 players were named All-Pro for the first time, including first-time honorees such as Justin Madubuike, Patrick Queen, Rashid Shaheed, and Ross Matiscik.

Is the Legendary Trio of Eagles Getting Ready for Their Final Game?

Sauce Gardner of the New York Jets becomes the first player from the team to make first-team AP All-Pro in each of his first two seasons, joining the ranks of legends such as Darrelle Revis, Johnny Powell, and Mark Gastineau. Despite examining the All-Pro selections in detail, it is important to remember that roster selections do not dictate the career trajectory of players, which is relevant given the venue of the announcement.
