The 2015 NFL All-Pro Team roster as voted by the Associated Press is here. For the second year in a row, no Philadelphia Eagles players were named to the first team.

Only one Eagles player was named second-team All Pro. Can you guess who? Yep, it's Fletcher Cox. The 25-year-old defensive lineman was also named second-team last year. Cox only finished with two votes at defensive end but he had nine votes at defensive tackle, which is four more than he had last year.

Cox had another great season. He recorded 9.5 sacks, 13 quarterback hits, and 54 hurries through 16 games. Cox also had two pass deflections, three forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. Cox was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week in October. He was also voted as the team's winner of the Ed Block Courage Award. After being snubbed by the Pro Bowl for years, he finally made it in this time around.

There's obviously an argument Cox deserves to be on the first team. The names ahead of him include: Aaron Donald (47), Geno Atkins (23), and Kawann Short (14).

Other Eagles players receiving votes include: kick returner Darren Sproles (8), safety Malcolm Jenkins (2), and offensive tackle Jason Peters (1).
