Raiders shut out of 2013 All Pro team

New, comments

The Associated Press released their 2013 All Pro first and second teams today. And there isn't a single Raider to be found.

It isn't incredibly surprising there were no Raiders on the first team, but none on the second team? That is a bit surprising.

There are two Raiders who had the best shot at making All Pro - Sebastian Janikowski and Marcel Reece. Both Janikowski and Reece were third in the voting on their respective squads.

For kickers, first team All Pro went decidedly to Vikings rookie Blair Walsh with 42. Next in line was the man who made the Pro Bowl over Janikowski, the Browns' Phil Dawson with 4 votes. Janikowski received just 3 votes.

A for fullback, the top vote getter was Texans fullback Vonta Leach with 26 votes. Making second team was another Viking, Jerome Felton with 12 votes. Marcel Reece, like Janikowski, was on the outside looking in with 4 votes.

The only other Raider to receiver any votes was Tyvon Branch who received one vote at the safety position.

This also shows you just how bad of a season Shane Lechler had being that he went from an All Pro lock to not even receiving a single vote.
