NFLPA Announces Players’ First All-Pro Team; Who did the player choose?

The end of another NFL season means another round of NFL award lists from analysts who have watched and researched the league all year long, not to mention the Pro Bowl itself.

But this year, there’s a new roster — the NFL Players Association’s “Professional Teams” — the first time a professional team is elected exclusively through the players’ own votes.

“Players vote for the Pro Bowl, but only get a third of the say,” said NFLPA president JC Tretter in a statement. “‘NFL Top 100’ is another list that we have input on, but the setup is flawed because it compares players in a way that doesn’t believe in the sport and players don’t really take it seriously.. . ‘All-Pro players are the only team to be voted for exclusively by the players, in the way that makes the most sense for the game of football — and the response from our membership has been tremendous.”

There are some regulations. According to the NFLPA, players cannot vote for themselves or their teammates. Instead, they can only vote for membership of their own position group and the position group they line up against.

For example, a wide receiver can vote for other wide receivers as well as full-backs and safety, while a center can vote for other centers, tackles, defensive midfielders inside and the full-back.

Players are also ineligible for votes if they’ve missed more than four games since Week 15.

So without further ado, this is the first NFLPA Players All-Pro team.
