A total of four Philadelphia Eagles players have been named to the 2017 NFL All-Pro Team as determined by The Associated Press.
Two Eagles players were named first-team All-Pro: right tackle Lane Johnson and center Jason Kelce.
Two Eagles players were named second-team All-Pro: quarterback Carson Wentz and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.
Some thoughts on these honors:
- Johnson, Wentz, and Cox were also elected to the Pro Bowl this season.
- Kelce was an obvious Pro Bowl snub. Good to see him make this list. Kelce was also named to the PFF All-Pro Team.
- Lol at Tom Brady getting 47 votes while Wentz only got two. That’s a joke. You can sure make your case for Brady over Wentz, but you can’t act like it wasn’t even a debate. Wentz finished the 2017 season with more touchdowns than Brady despite playing in 3.25 fewer games.
- Brandon Brooks made the Pro Bowl but didn’t make the All-Pro team. He received one vote at left guard and three at his actual position: right guard.
- Brandon Graham didn’t make the Pro Bowl and he didn’t make the All-Pro team. But he did receive one vote.
- Malcolm Jenkins received four votes at safety and two at the “defensive back” position. Jenkins made this year’s Pro Bowl.
- Patrick Robinson also received one vote at the “defensive back” position for his strong work as a nickel corner. Robinson made second-team PFF All Pro.
- Kamu Grugier-Hill received a vote as a special teamer! Awesome.
