The best of the best in the NFL finally got the official adulation they deserved, as the 2019 AP All-Pro team is out.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey, and New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas lead the offense of the 2019 First Team.
Quenton Nelson, Zack Martin, and Jason Kelce were once again named All-Pro players on the offensive line.
On defense, familiar faces like Los Angeles Rams game-changer Aaron Donald, New England's Stephon Gilmore, and Seattle's Bobby Wagner are back once again, while new faces like New York Jets star Jamal Adams, Pittsburgh's Minkah Fitzpatrick, and Buffalo's Tre'Davious White are also in the mix.
The second team features a couple of league leaders, as the NFL's top rusher and sacker in Tennessee's Derrick Henry and Tampa Bay's Shaq Barrett were named to this team, with Seattle superstar Russell Wilson earning the nod at quarterback.
Travis Kelce, Julio Jones, and Richard Sherman were also among the notable names included in the second team.
There are some controversial omissions from this list, Patrick Mahomes among them, but the writers seem to have nailed a good chunk of it this year.
