The AP All Pro team has been announced for the NFL. And not surprisingly, there were no Raiders on it. In total there were just two players to receive All Pro votes -- Marcel Reece and Charles Woodson. Not receiving any votes was the Raiders' best player, Khalil Mack.

Reece received 12 All Pro votes which was third among fullbacks in the voting behind Packers John Kuhn (44) and Chiefs Anthony Sherman (14).

Woodson received just one All Pro vote. The two safeties to be named All Pro were Seahawks Earl Thomas (39), and Chargers Eric Weddle (16).

As for Mack receiving no votes, most will point to the Raiders 3-13 record as the culprit, which is possible I suppose. Others will point to his being a rookie. Even though two fellow defensive rookies Aaron Donald (4), and CJ Mosley (9) both received votes. Cowboys rookie offensive guard Zach Martin (24) made the team.

The All Pro outside linebackers are Chiefs Justin Houston (43) and Ravens Elvis Dumervil (13). Other receiving votes were  Von Miller, Denver (11), Connor Barwin, Philadelphia (11), DeAndre Levy, Detroit (7), Clay Matthews, Green Bay (5), Ryan Kerrigan, Washington (3), Lavonte David, Tampa Bay (2), and Terrell Suggs, Baltimore (1).

Two players were unanimously named All Pro: Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
