Five players are unanimous selections to this year’s Associated Press All-Pro team, including a pair of players who will be helping the Rams try to advance in the postseason on Monday night.

Wide receiver Cooper Kupp and defensive tackle Aaron Donald were each named by all 50 voters whose choices put together the team. It’s the first time that Kupp has been named a first-team All-Pro and the seventh-straight year that Donald has been on the team.

Donald’s chief competition for defensive player of the year was also a unanimous choice. Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt tied Michael Strahan’s single-season sack record this year and is now a three-time All-Pro.

“Obviously, it’s an honor to be recognized, and it wouldn’t be possible without my coaches and incredible teammates, but the awards and accolades aren’t what drives me,” Watt said. “It’s competing with and for them, this franchise, and this city, that drives me. My coaches and teammates are the people that put me in a position to make splash, help us win, and this recognition honestly doesn’t come without them.”

Packers wide receiver Davante Adams made the first team for the second straight season and Colts running back Jonathan Taylor joins Kupp as a first-timer.

  1. Aaron Donald is massively overrated. Guy does nothing every time they get spanked by the Niners.

  2. Guess there wasnt another RB for the All-Pro team … Chubb could have been the other.

  3. Maxx Crosby beating Nick Bosa for 2nd team honors is an absolute joke. Bosa was better in every meaningful pass rushing stat.

  4. Curse of the MVP Award. Glad Rogers is getting it because COVID liar won’t be in the Superbowl.

  5. Parsons = Micah Parsons has 13 sacks and 79 tackles this year.

    He is the only NFL player to do this over the last 9 NFL seasons.

    Not just the only ROOKIE… the only PLAYER.
    Parsons also has 39 more SOLO tackles than Watt. The only thing Watt has over Parsons is 4 sacks

  6. Looking at Donald’s career stats vs SF…31 QB hits, 18 TFL, 12.5 sacks in 15 games.

    That’s an All Pro season all on its own.

    Not to mention he had 15 tackles against them in two games this year.

    We already know 49er fans are the dumbest in all of sports. You guys don’t need to prove it every week.

  7. Yeah, gotta say Donald is overrated. Not saying he’s a bad player. He’s very damn good, but come on…another unanimous All Pro. Joke.

  8. I’m willing to bet the voters who did not vote for Tucker would be first in line to choose him for a kick their game depended upon.

  10. Guess there wasnt another RB for the All-Pro team … Chubb could have been the other.
