The Associated Press released their 2021 All Pro Team on Friday and there were five unanimous choices. The group includes Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp and Packers wide receiver Davante Adams, Colts running back Jonathan Taylor, Steelers edge rusher T.J. Watt, and Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

There will be numerous All Pro teams, but the AP team is considered the official NFL team. It is the primary one when it comes to contract incentives, so it is significant.

This year’s list includes 14 players making their first appearance on the first-team. On offense, that includes 49ers left tackle Trent Williams, Ravens tight end Mark Andrews, Buccaneers right tackle Tristan Wirfs, Browns left guard Joel Bitonio, and 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel. On defense, that includes Cowboys linebacker Micah Parsons (the only rookie), Packers linebacker De’Vondre Campbell, Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs, and Bills safety Jordan Poyer. There are five first-timers on special teams, including Raiders punter A.J. Cole, Jets kick returner Braxton Berrios, Ravens punt returner Devin Duvernay, Saints special teamer J.T Gray, and Colts long snapper Luke Rhodes.
