Five Kansas City Chiefs have been named to the Associated Press All-Pro team for the 2020 season — including three first-teamers.

Tight end Travis Kelce, wide receiver Tyreek Hill and safety Tyrann Mathieu were named to the AP first team. The Associated Press also noted that Kelce was one of two unanimous choices for the 50 voters. Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald was the other.

“He works his tail off every single day and he’s practicing every single day and he’s making sure he’s prepared for these moments,” Mahomes described of Kelce, via (that) AP. “For a guy to have that much talent, work that hard and be able to learn really every single day like that, that’s what makes him so special on the field.”

Kelce was named a first-team All-Pro for the third time in his career in 2020 (2016, 2018). Having been named a second-team All-Pro in 2017 and 2019, Kelce has been an All-Pro for five consecutive seasons. Kelce finished second in the league in receiving yards in 2020 with 1,416. He had a career-high 105 catches and 11 touchdowns.

Hill was named a first-team All-Pro for the third time in his career (2016 as a return specialist, 2018 in the flex position); he was also a second-team All-Pro in 2018 as a wide receiver. Hill finished 2020 with 87 catches for 1,276 yards and 15 touchdowns. He also added 13 carries for 123 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

Mathieu was named a first-team All-Pro for the third time in his career (2015, 2019). This year’s honor was for his performance at the safety position. In 2019, he was named as a first-team defensive back and second-team safety. Mathieu compiled 62 tackles (48 solo), nine passes defensed, six interceptons, a touchdown, three tackles for loss and two quarterback hits.

Mahomes was named to the AP All-Pro second team in 2020, the second All-Pro honor of his career. The quarterback was also a first-team All-Pro for the 2018 season, when he took home the AP NFL MVP award. Mahomes threw for 4,740 yards, 38 touchdowns and six interceptions in 2020, while also racking up 62 carries for 308 yards and two touchdowns. Mahomes shares the second-team honor with Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen.

Defensive tackle Chris Jones was named to the All-Pro second team for the second time (2018). Jones registered 36 tackles (23 solo) 7.5 sacks, 28 quarterback hits, four passes defensed, three tackles for loss and two forced fumbles on the year.
