The Associated Press All Pro teams have come out. And to the surprise of probably no one, there were no Raiders among them. Though there were a couple of names you saw in a Raiders uniform fairly recently.

There is, of course, Khalil Mack, who was traded to the Bears just prior to the start of the season. He took his usual spot as First Team All Pro Edge rusher alongside JJ Watt. You might recall, Mack remains the only player ever selected All Pro at two different positions (LB, DE) in the same year (2016). That was the year he won Defensive Player of the Year.

The other was Cordarrelle Patterson, who was named to the Second team as a kick returner. He was with the Raiders for the 2017 season and was traded to the Patriots last March along with a sixth round pick in exchange for a 5th round pick. He averaged 28.8 yards per kick return this season including a 95-yard return touchdown. He averaged just below that (28.3 ypr) with the Raiders in his one season in Oakland, but didn’t take any to the house.

Probably the best chance the Raiders had of any of their players making the All Pro team was center Rodney Hudson. He was the second team center by Pro Football Focus behind Jason Kelce. Kelce was named AP first team All Pro, but Steelers Markise Pouncey was named the second team center.

Tight end Jared Cook was named a Pro Bowl alternate for the AFC, but there was no way anyone was going to be selected over Travis Kelce and George Kittle.
