All-Pro voting was altered this year to have specific starters on the left and right side of the offensive line, and added a flex position to the offense and fifth defensive back.

1st and 2nd Team All-Pro voting remained the same: runners up at the position are given the designation of “2nd Team All-Pro” which is why there are more players on the 2nd Team and why some positions have no 2nd Team player.

Graham was second on the Eagles with 5.5 sacks and was third in the league among defensive ends in solo tackles with 41. He received three votes.

Fletcher Cox received six votes, placing him 6th among defensive tackles; Jason Peters received two, placing him 5th among left tackles, Malcolm Jenkins received one vote as a safety, placing him 9th among safeties and three votes as the fifth defensive back, placing him 4th; and Chris Maragos received one vote, placing him ninth among special teamers.

The ballot consisted of 50 writers from the Associated Press.

Additionally, Jack Conklin was listed as “Travis Conklin”.
