Justin Tucker, Tyreek Hill are the NFL’s only unanimous All-Pros

This year’s All-Pro team didn’t have any unanimous selections on offense or defense. But there were two unanimous selections on special teams.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker and Chiefs punt returner Tyreek Hill were the only unanimous selections to the All-Pro team.

Tucker was an easy choice after going 38-for-39 on field goals, best in the NFL, including 10-for-10 from 50 yards and beyond. Tucker also went a perfect 27-for-27 on extra points.

Hill burst onto the scene as the best punt returner in the league as a rookie, leading the NFL both in total punt return yards (592) and punt return average (15.2 yards per return).

Rams punter Johnny Hekker easily could have made it three unanimous selections on special teams in a season in which he set new NFL records for both net punting average and punts inside the 20-yard line. Surprisingly, Hekker got just 42 of 50 votes.

Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner was the closest thing to a unanimous pick among position players, being named on 48 of 50 All-Pro ballots.

  1. 38-for-39 Tucker had no answer for a perfectly trained Patriots missile hurled at him by grand strategist Bill Belichick. But then again who does?

  2. Tucker is a helluva Kicker! Shame the Bengals
    don’t have a kicker like that! Probably would’ve
    had 3 more wins! Thanks Nugent :/

    Tyreek is also an all pro at punching and choking pregnant women lets not forget.

    No one has forgotten that about Tyreek, but he is also one helluva football player. You can’t dispute that.

  4. Wagner being that close to unanimous is more impressive than the others, there’s some excellent competition at that position. Still, hats off to Tucker on his year. He had to be operating under tremendous pressure when you consider he IS the Ravens offense.

    It should be noted the ONE miss the entire year was when the Pats linebacker timed the snap perfectly and was basically in better position to kick the ball than Tucker.

    Truly a great season.

    How is Zeke not unanimous?
    ____________

    How about Ajayi? What about the Bears rookie (Howard)? Leveon Bell?

    You think all the writers agree Zeke is much more deserving than all of these guys?

    That’s how.

  8. Elliott led the nfl by more than 300 yds as well as sitting out the last 1 3/4 games. Guess not good enough lmao

  9. If you’re OK with this turd who punched his pregnant girlfriend in the stomach and choked her, than you’re no better than him.

  10. Just another proven fact all reason of what’s right is out on the back burner for the all hallowed Fantasy Football points. Ladies included.
    All that is right has been let go for $$$$$$$ or the right to have dumb azz wipes bang in their chest when their woman beater has a great game

  11. For the 300 lb misfits that always give thumbs down. LOL I will say it. You are pitiful and waste of humanity. Outside of having an internet connection ? You are the waste products of humanity.

  12. What two idiot writers couldn’t vote for the leading tackler in the NFL by a large margin, 167 and 85 of those solo, 4.5 sacks and didn’t come off the field in passing situations which is unheard of for a middle linebacker.

    Hill is nothing more then a well paid Kunta Kintay

    That time of the month in the ole mongo household? 🙂

  14. Not hills fault that he’s in the NFL, not hills fault that the legal punishment for his actions isn’t all that severe. Facts are he’s paid his debt to society, continues to pay his ex and child(which is probably way more now that he’s a pro athlete)and continues to take advantage of his second chance on and off the field.

    This is ranking football players on the field and there’s no denying he’s one he’ll of a football player

  15. If there was video footage of Hill’s actions would he have been drafted? I don’t think so. The only footage the NFL cares about is highlight reels. Way I figure, the real life violence and abuse doesn’t exist unless society sees it for themselves. The NFL only cares about what the “fans” consider to be integrity and “protecting the shield”. There is no moral compass for the organization.

    Here’s the math:

    Ray Rice = Tom Brady

  16. Am I the only one who is just not that impressed with a kick returner? I get it that the position only puts 2-3 guys in a position to be noticed each year, but all the sports radio people are even acting like the Chiefs are a scary playoff threat because this guy might run a punt back…. Big deal a good QB throws 3-5 TDs in a good game, why does everyone see Tyreek Hill as some big weapon?
