The Associated Press All-Pro team is out and the Kansas City Chiefs have four players selected. PR Tyreek Hill, TE Travis Kelce, CB Marcus Peters and S Eric Berry were named to the first team All-Pro. RT Mitch Schwartz was named to the second team.
Tyreek Hill is one of three rookies in the NFL to make the first team. The Chiefs WR made it as a punt returner, which shouldn’t be too surprising. He was the best return man in the NFL this year and the voters made him a unanimous first-team selection. Even with the loftiest of expectations you couldn’t have predicted a season like this for Hill, who had 12 total touchdowns for the Chiefs this year.
Kelce was the NFL’s best tight end this year with Rob Gronkowski injured. With over 1,100 yards receiving, Kelce was on a tear the second half of the season. Kelce had 44 of the 50 votes with Greg Olsen getting five and Gronk getting one. Kelce also got one vote for the “flex” position.
Peters and Berry are the Chiefs defensive leaders. Berry’s touchdown against the Panthers and Falcons along with his pick-two in Atlanta are the most memorable moments. Landon Collins had 47 votes while Berry got 31.
For Peters, he had
five six picks this year to add to his eight last season. His most memorable moment this season might’ve been taking the ball out of Kelvin Benjamin’s hands late in the game to seal a win over the Panthers. He received 23 votes while Aqib Talib had 27.
Schwartz got second team with six votes.
The Chiefs had the second most players selected with four. The Cowboys were tops with five.
