Green Bay Packers have had a fantastic season and it couldn’t be done without many of the talented players on the roster. On Jan. 14, the Associated Press released their All-Pro team and there are a few familiar names on the list.
The Packers are no strangers to the AP All-Pro Team. In the last couple of seasons, we have seen a lot of names on the list like Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, David Bakhtiari, Za’Darius Smith, and Jaire Alexander.
There are still familiar names on that list, but there’s a new player from the Packers that no one saw coming before the season started.
The most notable selection to the All-Pro list was Davante Adams. This doesn’t come as a shock for one of the top receivers in the league. However, he was one of five players that were a unanimous decision to be named as a First Team selection.
The other players included Cooper Kupp, Aaron Donald, TJ Watt, and Jonathan Taylor.
Another player that comes to no surprise was Aaron Rodgers. This is still a notable selection as he was named to First Team and Tom Brady was selected to the second-team.
You might be asking “why is this notable?’ Well, the same people that vote for All-Pro teams are the same people that vote for the MVP. Rodgers received 34 votes and Brady received 16 votes. If we do the math, Rodgers would end up winning the award.
The Packers also had a defensive player make the All-Pro list, and this time it comes from the linebacker position. Yes, De’Vondre Campbell, a player signed on June 9th for one year, $2 million was named to the All-Pro First team.
Campbell was on the open market for three months and Brian Gutekunst was able to sign him to the Packers. It’s been a remarkable season for Campbell and could go down as one of the greatest signings in Green Bay history.
Defensive tackle Kenny Clark received two votes but was named to the All-Pro team.
