Two Unanimous Picks For All Pro
Vikings 2,000-yard man Adrian Peterson and Texans pass-swatting end J.J. Watt were unanimous picks for the honor. Peterson, who came within 9 yards of breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, and Watt, who led the NFL with 20 1-2 sacks, were selected by all 50 members of a nationwide panel of media members who cover the league.
Peterson is a three-time All-Pro. Watt is among 17 players making their All-Pro debuts. Peyton Manning made his sixth team, the previous five while quarterbacking Indianapolis. Also chosen for the sixth time was Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez, who this season moved into second place on the career receptions list. San Francisco linebacker Patrick Willis made it for the fifth time in his six pro seasons.
