WASHINGTON, D.C. – For the second year in a row, NFL players used their expertise to make determine which of their peers performed best on the field this season. Following a league-wide vote, the second annual Players’ All-Pro Team presented by OneTeam Partners was announced Wednesday by the NFL Players Association.

Thirty players earned a coveted spot on the Players’ All-Pro first team, which highlights the top performers across 23 different positions. In the coming weeks, the NFLPA will release a top 5 list that provides a more extensive look at how players voted in each category.

The guidelines and ballot for the Players’ All-Pro Team were created with an emphasis on consistency, availability and positional familiarity, including:

  • Only active NFL players were eligible to vote, and each player could only vote once.
  • Players could not vote for themselves or for their teammates.
  • If a player missed five or more games as of Week 15 of the season, they were ineligible for a spot on the team.
  • Players voted for the position group they play in and line up against on the field. For example, centers could vote for: the best center, the best nose tackle, the best interior defensive lineman and the best off-ball linebacker in the league.
  • For the special teams (or “core teamers”) category, various player leaders from each locker room nominated their two top players for the ballot.

About the NFL Players Association:  
The National Football League Players Association is the union for professional football players in the National Football League. Established in 1956, the NFLPA has a long history of assuring proper recognition and representation of players’ interests. The NFLPA has shown that it will do whatever is necessary to assure that the rights of players are protected—including ceasing to be a union, if necessary, as it did in 1989. In 1993, the NFLPA again was officially recognized as the union representing the players and negotiated a landmark Collective Bargaining Agreement with the NFL. The current CBA will govern the sport through the 2030 NFL season. Learn more at
