Steelers receiver Antonio Brown and right guard David DeCastro were named first-team All-Pro today by the Associated Press.
It's the second consecutive season Brown was named first-team All-Pro. He was second-team All-Pro in 2013. DeCastro was named All-Pro for the first time.
Oakland’s Khalil Mack, a force at both defensive end and outside linebacker, became the first selection at two positions in the same year, while Adrian Peterson and J.J. Watt were unanimous choices for the All-Pro team.
Carolina, with an NFL-best 15-1 record, had the most All-Pros with six: quarterback Cam Newton, fullback Mike Tolbert, center Ryan Kalil, linebackers Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis and cornerback Josh Norman.
One rookie, Seattle kick returner Tyler Lockett, made the squad. In all, 15 NFC players and 12 from the AFC were chosen.
