Four Kansas City Chiefs have been named to the Associated Press All-Pro team for the 2019 season — including one first-teamer.

Safety Tyrann Mathieu was named to the AP first team as a defensive back and to the second team as a safety. Tight end Travis Kelce, right tackle Mitchell Schwartz and kick returner Mecole Hardman were named second-team All-Pros.

Mathieu registered 75 tackles (63 solo), four interceptions, 12 passes defensed, three tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks in 2019. 2019 marks the second time Mathieu was named a first-team All-Pro (2015).

Kelce was named a second-team All-Pro for the second time in his career in 2019 (2017). Having been named a first-team All-Pro in 2016 and 2018, Kelce has been an All-Pro for four consecutive seasons. Kelce finished fourth in the league in receiving yards in 2019 with 1,229 — more than any tight end. He had 97 catches and five touchdowns.

Schwartz, who started all 16 games for the Chiefs, was named as a second-team All-Pro for the third time in his career in 2019 (2016-17). Schwartz was named a member of the first team for his efforts in 2018. Schwartz played every snap in his career until missing a few in the team’s Week 10 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Hardman, a rookie, accumulated 704 return yards on 27 kick return attempts (26.1 yards/return), including a kick-return touchdown in the Chiefs’ final game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Hardman returned 18 punts for 167 yards (9.3 yards/return).
